Death Trifecta Baby!

25 06 2009

Death always seems to come in threes, doesn’t it?  Of course I’m sure you already know what I’m talking about.

So we should first have a moment of silence for… the political career of “promise keeper” Nevada Sen. John Ensign, which met an untimely death by blunt hypocrisy trauma after an affair with a former staffer and massive cover up came to light.  (sniff)

Then we should continue mourning because of the passing of another career, that of South Carolina Republican Gov. Mark “Appalachian-walk-on-the-wild-side-(but-actually-in-Argentina)” Sanford (with double sadness points for his embryonic dreams of being a GOP Presidential candidate also getting killed in the carnage).

Of course that is only two, but I’m sure there will be another “family values” career petard hoisting any day now.  What with Republicans like Foley, Craig, Vitter, Gibbons, Fossella, Gingrich, and (lest we forget) John McCain, these guys can’t seem to help but bone home the “Christian Family Values” meme like an Argentinian political adviser in an Minneapolis airport men’s bathroom.  Bring on the Republican career death Trifecta baby!!!

Hypocrisy, now available in extra dickish.

(Oh yeah, and I guess there was the whole Ed McMahon/Farrah Fawcett/Michael Jackson thing too.  Weird huh?)

You’re on a roll…..but this is good. Love the political death trifecta…as if we didn’t see the Sanford thing coming. Did you read the email correspondence?
He even used the bible to make him feel better about cheating on his wife.

I wish I could wish it away, but this soul-mate feel I alluded too is real and in that regard I sure don’t want to be the person complicating your life. I looked to where I often look for advice and counsel, and in I Corinthians 13 it simply says that, “ Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous or boastful, it is not arrogant or rude, Love does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice in the wrong, but rejoices in the right, Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things”.

Just rich…..

I like the way he apologized to his mistress before apologizing to his wife and kids.
I also like the way Rush is blaming Obama for Sanford running out on his 4 kids on Father’s Day to get some strange. Classic “Personal Responsibility.”

Considering the history of Republicans making careers for themselves by attacking other for what they themselves do, I doubt the GOP base will care about these schmoes. As long as they aren’t dirty liberals, everything is okay. We forgive you, Sanford! We forgive you for being a hypocrite. You have an (R) by your name.
It’s not fascism if they do it. (warrentless wiretaps, indefinite prison without charges)
It’s not adultery if they do it. (Newt, Vitter)
It’s not socialism if they do it. (Palin)
It’s not murder if they do it. (religious nut job hailed as a hero for killing a doctor)
It’s not torture if they do it. (Bush/Cheney)
It’s not teh ghey if they do it. (Lary Craig, Foley, Haggard)

You left out poor David Carredine. But I guess it wouldn’tve been a death trifecta then, would it?

I suppose you’re right. I think I forgot him because I was still trying to block out the images of him with fishnet stockings on hanging in a hotel closet. (damn…) Thanks a lot.

Why is no one talking about auto-erotic asphyxiation?
