Pill Popping Prez?
This takes me back to my earlier post, that another president wonders if Dubya is really in charge......and while I certainly do not want to make light of anyone dealing with personal / emotional crises - it does create some concern, especially when the person in question has...um.....access to nuclear weapons.
Now, as we get closer to election time, I'm sure all sorts of ugliness will be swirling all over the internet. Remember when Poppa Bush puked in Japan? I remember hearing he had a stroke......that other folks were in charge, etc.
Anyway....just more fodder for conspiracy folks....
Okay....so last night, Former President Carter said this in an interview after his speech to the DNC:
I don't know really to what degree President Bush is the leader among that inner circle when they congregate in the Oval Office to make basic decisions about what to do.
It may be that Vice President Cheney is the dominating voice. Or it might be that in military affairs, maybe Secretary Rumsfeld is the dominant voice. But it's a coalition of leaders who collectively have not maintained the integrity of our government and its commitment to human rights in our life. And I don't think there's any doubt that some of the statements, public statements, made by Vice President Cheney have been very disturbing as they led up to the torture, for instance....
Ummmm....isn't that kinda bad? A former president saying that he's unsure the current president is actually making a decision? Isn't that what he was, presumably...ahem...elected to do?
Well.... I saw nothing about it in the media today. I saw Katie Couric driving around Boston with Ben Affleck.... I guess that's more important.Online NewsHour: Former President Carter Speaks of State of Democratic Party -- July 26, 2004
Eve in her glory days
I have waited years (seriously...4 years at least) to hear that confession from Doctor Eve on Passions - and thank God! her storyline has jumped that dramatic hurdle!
See.....Marla Gibbs (mmmmmhmmmmm ..... Florence ..... Maaarrrrryyyy) has joined the cast of Passions as Aunt Irma - who remembers Eve's past as a pill-popping slut - and has been brought to Harmony by Eve's sister to expose the good Doctor.
Daytime drama has never been finer.
|Controversial Performer Margaret Cho told no by HRC homos.|
I have, finally, had it with the assimilationist fags and Talbot’s lesbians in charge at HRC.
Margaret Cho was going to perform for FREE next week at a gay fundraising event (strangely enough called Unity ’04) in Boston and has been uninvited by HRC because of fears of another “Whoopi” incident.
I’m sure the power homos at HRC can rationalize all they want to about a troubled political climate, the need for a moderate voice, etc. but it seems to me that HRC is moving further away from being a voice for the entire gay community and is, instead, a weak willed, pandering group of political demagogues.
So what’s gonna happen at their fundraiser next week? Maybe there will be fine wines and baked brie? Maybe the WASPy HRC’ers can sit around and laugh about embarrassing incidents in Pilates class or at their child’s soccer practice. Coz if ya look at the HRC propoganda, we're all a buncha Range Rover driving upper middle class honkies who live at Crate and Barrel. Ugh! It is sure to be as dreadful as the event I went to a few months ago.
OH! As I was writing this, I got this response from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (who is hosting their national convention in St. Louis this November):

National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Withdraws from LGBT "Unity 2004" Event at Democratic National Convention
Statement by Matt Foreman, Executive Director
"We are dismayed that Margaret Cho has been disinvited to perform at the LGBT Unity 2004 event scheduled for Monday, July 26 in Boston. We had been a co-sponsor of this event.
Throughout her career, Ms. Cho has been a staunch supporter of equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans, has contributed her time and talent to dozens of LGBT fundraising events, and is much loved by our community. We were proud to give her a Task Force Leadership Award last year. Ms. Cho has said, 'I'm more than bi(sexual).' She is, indeed, one of us.
Under these circumstances, we must regretfully withdraw our support for this event."
Alright NGLTF! Maybe the Banana Republic fags haven’t taken over the universe!
They added more show dates due to popular response! There will be shows July 29-30th at 8pm with a special command performance at 11pm on July 30th (celebratory party after the July 30th 11pm show for patrons, cast, & crew).
My dear friend Bradley got such an amazing review in the Post. I'm so happy for him!
I hope everyone turns up to see the show!
