Gay Old Party
From Joseph Cannon's latest blog at http://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com /......

"As a Cannonfire correspondent reminds us, there are persistent allegations surrounding George W. Bush himself:

Why is Bush so hostile to the idea of gay marriage? Perhaps because until 1977, George W. Bush was gay. According to a group of 29 Yale classmates who comprise "Gay Ivy Leaguers for Truth," Bush was "known to be at least sexually experimental throughout his time in college." One of Bush's alleged former boyfriends, Anthony Berusca (class of '70), told The Dallas Morning News that Bush was "deeply conflicted about being gay, even somewhat self-hating." Berusca is convinced that this conflict led to Bush's drinking problems, but describes the President as a "gentle, caring lover." In 1976, the Bush family arranged for George to join "Worthy Creations," a church group in El Paso that focuses on converting homosexuals through faith. A year later, Bush was straight, born again, and engaged to Laura Welch (Bush)."

Entertainig reading.

Hell, Pickles probably doesn't even want him. Impeach the Chimp-Panzy and let him go live in (Don't forget) Poland with his dear Victor.

25. Ashe's nickname is Bulldog?
LOL - maybe that is why jimmy-jeff-gannon-gurkett-cannon-gerkin went with Bulldog! Oh, could he only hope to be a substitute for a former love and dominate and leave his impression on the boy blunder.

8. Those rumors are pretty persistent around the southwest, too
I started hearing them shortly after I'd moved out here, when Idiot was first elected Texas governor.

Howver, his miraculous conversion didn't occur until the 1990s. He was married off to Laura because that is what the scions of the super rich are meant to do.

It's doubtful if any gender reassignment happened. What happened was parental and class marching orders.

Out of forty-some people at least two or three would be gay.

12. Does anyone have a cite to the Dallas Morning News article?
Personally, I find it hard to believe that the Dallas Morning News actually ran a story on allegations that Bush was gay.

13. Would the right wing care if this story were true?
Even with the antihomosexual christians, as long as Bush is a self hating gay and cured/converted, why would the conservatives care any more than they cared about his coke use? As long as Bush detests his former life and joins in on punishing the sinners, he is a treasured convert, the prodigal son who is cherised above all.

And the non christian conservatives don't care whose gay and who isn't.

32. Maybe that explains
"Gannon"? :shrug: He was sitting close to the podium and I also remember seeing the picture of Bush in his non-matching outfit and there's a police man standing behind him that looks like "Gannon." I've never seen a policeman stand the way he was. :shrug:

and the USA Military. As open minded as I wished the armed services could be I don't think the old and entranced leadership within the Marine Corps is going to appreciate a new interpretation to their motto: Semper Fi as depicted below:




MASCULINE, MUSCULAR, MILITARY
VERY DISCRETE - "WON'T ASK, WON'T TELL"

I believe that "the sh*t's about to hit the fan" and it will be like no other scandal we've experienced before.


p.s. I hope you don't consider showing Jeff's alleged "hoo hoo" as blatant porn ... well being that it's so small and the adjacent Marine Corps emblem is so large, etc. <blush>

On edit: Good <relieved sigh> I was able to use American Blog's PIC that is everything but the hoo hoo. LOL

37. Lump on the other side of the bed?
So that's what he was telling us when he said he had a Man date.

Really gushed about the Canadian Scott being prettier than Scot McClellan.

Against Gay Marriage because that would cause more stability in monogamous relationships and reduce the selection of of Boy Toys.

I think I am starting to catch on.

Oh, the hypocrisy.

35. NO, it's faked, or at least not fully sourced
It links to a link to a link that was created during the campaign and encourages people to respond to Kerry smearing with a bunch of smears of their own. The writer said he heard these rumors "around the water cooler" but there is no sourcing beyond that. There were several scenarios, to be cut and pasted, and emailed about.

Without full sourcing, this particular story does not yet have legs. It could be one of those situations where you take a grain of truth and add a beach of lies, who knows? That's not to say it couldn't possibly be true, but there's nothing in the links that would cause me to bet on it.

33. Debunk #1
According to the "Worthy Creations" actual website,

http://www.worthycreations.org /

"Founded in 1986, Worthy Creations is an interdenominational Christian ministry dedicated to helping men and women find freedom from homosexuality and sexual brokenness."

The article above states that 1976 is when he joined the church group.

dunno dont care.


Gooooooog "Worthy Creations"

46. The reason no one saw bush during his
National Guard stint was because he was in the closet.

This has nothing to do with being gay, it's just that the irony is hilarious.
