The Mad Mess Of King George
The Coronation of King George Warmonger has been drawing a lot of flack from the usual suspects. Did you know that he's also getting a lot of negative remarks from people who claim to be his 'moral values' supporters?
It's true! Take Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's comments:
Dallas billionaire Mark Cuban has a suggestion for President Bush: Cancel the inauguration parties and donate the money saved - some $40 million - to the tsunami victims. The irreverent, outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner won't say how much he has given to the disaster victims, but his Dec. 31 proposal on his Web site has generated controversy - and support - on the Internet.
"My point was that this was a great opportunity for the president to stand up and say that we are committed to aid, but we need to take a first step towards austerity so we can reduce the deficit," Cuban said Friday via e-mail. "A great way to demonstrate that first step would be to have the inauguration, but cancel the parties and request the uncommitted donations be donated to the relief effort," he said.
Asked if it was fair to deny Bush supporters a celebration, Cuban, who said he voted for the president, replied, "Since when is the level of celebration defined by the amount spent?"
He's right. It's refreshing to find a conservative who has at least some of his priorities in order. Now - if we could only get some display that 'moral values' really means something to Bu$hCo:
"If this sex-crazed animal, whose favorite word is the F-word, is allowed to sing at Bush's inauguration this will send a clear message to pro-family Americans that the Republican Party has taken them for a ride and ditched them in the gutter." - Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families
DUH! Ya THINK???
Said Thomasson on the rapper's lyrics: "This is the worst I've ever seen. This guy's singing about how he sexually exploits every girl and then asks them if he can do it with their moms."
Thomasson wondered how "Bush's FCC can take the F-word off TV and fine radio and television networks that cuss on the air and show indecency, and then have the most indecent, sexually explicit, anti-family white singer on the planet representing the second term of George W. Bush."
It's simple, Thomasson! To borrow a phrase from Animal House: "You F-worded up! You trusted us!" Still glad you voted for him and his 'moral values'?
Thomasson said even if Kid Rock were to perform less offensive songs at the youth concert, his mere presence at a Bush event sends a huge message. "This is more than inconsistent; it's a sham," he said. "This guy is one of the worst role models for youth imaginable." Concluded Thomasson: "It makes me angry. … This is a good reason to leave the Republican Party."
Oh, please! You know that God hates liberals! Where can you go in a one party state, anyway?
Mr. Thomasson isn't alone in his criticism, however:
"Anybody that knows anything about Kid Rock knows that his music is disgusting and vile, and Republicans, and most certainly the Christian Republicans that got Bush re-elected, should be appalled by this," WND reader Dave Parker commented. "At best, it is a horrible oversight by a clueless event organizer. At worst, it is a slap in the face to all who voted for Bush with the belief that he is a more moral person than Kerry."
This is an example of Kid Rock's 'talent' - one that should be of special interest to Poppy himself:
Also featured on his 1990 debut album is "Pimp of the Nation," which ironically takes a swipe at Bush's mother. The lyrics include:
Even the pResident's staff isn't so sure about this choice:
A staff member of the Presidential Inauguration Committee told WND he himself was surprised about the Kid Rock appearance and said someone would provide the newssite with an official statement. No one from the committee returned the call by press time. The committee is reachable via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I sure am glad you Red Staters picked the man with the 'moral values' to lead you. I'd be seriously ashamed to admit that he was MY leader!
