Oh Sweet, Sweet Schadenfreude
You just never quite get inured to the hypocrichutzpah of the crusading right. You think you have them pegged for quite the eville repressive motherfuckers they are, and then smack! you're wapped upside the head with quite what stupid hypocritical eville repressive motherfuckers they are.
Today's poster child: Republican Mayor James West, of Spokane, Washington. 'West, a 54-year-old former state Senate leader and opponent of gay rights, has denied the molestation allegations ['that he abused two boys while he was a sheriff's deputy and Boy Scout leader in the late 1970s and early 1980s'] but acknowledged he visited a gay online chat room and had relations with adult men.'
Now, not content with using his office to persecute gays like himself (see as we maintain a judicious and unlitigatable silence on the Boy-Scout-molestation charge), West is under investigation by the FBI for allegedly offering government jobs in exchange for sex to men he met in gay chat rooms. Oh, and also 'improperly' using his office computer. Given his record, I can only imagine what that entails.
True to form, the Queens of Self-Loathing their royal selves, the Log Cabin Republicans, have turned on West and are calling for his resignation.
See how they gnash and snap, and tear out the viscera of their foolhardy fallen. Could anything warm the heart more?
