ROSCOE'S Weak-End Review

First openly homosexual congressman dies at 69

Don’t look now, but they’re hijacking our reality again. Get this:

BOSTON (AP) -- Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay person elected to Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical Center, several days after he collapsed while walking his dog, his husband said. [Emphasis added.]

We’re not even going to quibble over the word “gay.” That battle was lost a long time ago. But husband? Look, AP, I’m a member of that “husband” class that you’ve just offended. How about this: “Studds collapsed while walking his dog, his partner said.” You have to go and commit a whole new verbicide?

Go here to visit the scene of the crime.

See, that’s the kind of reality confusion that results when courts start playing God. It seems that former Congressperson Studds “married” his “husband,” Dean Hara, in 2004 in Massachusetts, right after that state “legalized” holy homosexual wedlock. Which, of course, makes it all OK. If God’s got a problem with that, well, maybe He’d just better go find Himself another gig, huh?

So, AP—obviously buying into the whole Massachusetts alternative-reality thing—must have figured they had to accord Mr. Hara a title higher than “partner,” which falls short of society’s official sanction. But what we want to know is how the AP knew Hara was the “husband” and not the “wife”? Has anybody thought to ask the dog? Maybe Hara was really the bitch. Could it be that what we have here is an insidious case of AP discrimination against canine-Americans? Hmm.

No more Mr. Nice Guy

Like we said, we’re a little cranky these days, what with all this sticking of needles into the belly to avoid a blood-clot croaking. So, we hope we can be forgiven if we seem to be taking some perverse delight in the misfortunes of others:

o Like Adam Gadahn, the American-born yellow snake who’s doing the Tokyo Rose gig for al Qaeda, and has now been officially charged with treason. About time, we say. It’s a message that desperately needs to be sent. Speaking of needles, the only better thing that could happen would be for this low-life to get nabbed, convicted and given something a little stronger than a flu shot. Listen up, New York Times and all the rest of you who are aiding and abetting America’s enemies with impunity. . .

o Like Kim Jong Il, who’s managed to further isolate himself in the eyes of the world and even the mainstream mediocracy, while the Bush administration gets some hard-to-come-by kudos. Not that these UN sanctions approved over the weekend are anywhere near strong enough. John Bolton wanted to get North Korea expelled from the United Nations. Indeed. That’s exactly what needs to happen with both North Korea and Iran. The price of readmission: Nuclear disarmament. You can be crazy. You can have nukes. But you can’t be homicidally crazy and have nukes. That’s where the line has to be drawn.

You made me laugh Roscoe... because you make a good point, how do we know the "husband" wasn't really the wife...after all in most normal couples, usually the wife lives longer right :)

Still prayin' for you, my friend.

Thanks, sis! I think we're going to find that the MSM will be opting for calling both partners in a male homosexual marriage "husbands" and those in lesbian marriage "wives." Looks like that's how it's going to shake out. Then the question whether that's going to be acceptable to the butches and the fems. A sticky wicket, huh?
