After forcing conservative partisan hack/journalist Jeff Gannon to resign and parading his nude pictures around from his days as a male escort, the left hasn’t been able to turn the issue into a White House smear, as was hoped. The same crowd is now trying to get Brit Hume to resign over an FDR quote that Hume took out of context. Ironically, in their excitement, they have misquoted Hume in turn, so it appears that either no one is going to resign, or everyone involved is going to resign. Don’t hold your breath.
So what’s next on the create-a-scandal circuit?
In secretly taped conversations from before the 2000 election, Bush admitted to having tried marijuana. This makes him a hypocrite, because Romans 4:24 clearly says that “the Lord shall smite those who inhale the funny grass.” What is even more scandalous is the reason Bush gave for not wanting to answer reporters who asked about past marijuana use.
“I wouldn’t answer the marijuana questions. You know why? Because I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried.”
How dare he try to force morality he can’t even follow onto others. And onto our children?!
No… it couldn’t be that Bush realizes that marijuana is harmful to children whose minds are still developing. It couldn’t possibly be that while he didn’t have a problem trying marijuana, he realizes that it has a tendency to make people become lazy, and doesn’t want to promote it by admitting to having tried it.
Bushijuanagate. You heard it here first.
