On Bush’s 'Asshole' Comment
My letter to the editor The Spokesman-Review
|Congradulations to The
Spokesman-Review for the way it handled
George Dubya's whispered aside in which
he called The New York Times reporter
Adam Clymer an obscenity.
Most media outlets
used such dodges as "a..hole,"
which looks and ultimately sounds just as
vulgar, doesn't it?
Associated Press avoided the quote
entirely and merely said that Bush,
"used an obscenity to describe
reporter Adam Clymer." But doesn't
this just cause us to speculate about all
of the other obscenities one could use to
describe reporter Adam Clymer?
ran the quote as "major league ass----"
This doesn't work either. Kiss. Face.
"There's Adam Clymer, major league
(*******) from the New York Times."
This is a total cop out. They should at
least give us a multiple choice.
St. Petersburgians picked up the St.
Petersburg Times to read the quote as,
"There's Adam Clymer, major league a--h---."
So he called him an air head, what's the
Washington Times went to the anatomically
extreme, noting Bush was "employing
a vulgar euphemism for a rectal aperture."

said Bush used a "barnyard epithet."
Oh, please.... We might think he called
him a p--f-----.

I wrote to my friend Phopaw
to tell him the new website was online, and
talked a bit about my current "infatuation"
with the Aztecs. He wrote back:
|I like the new issue so far.
Good move getting rid of the frames.
Lotsa pictures and stuff, too.
Be careful about
your infatuation with the Aztecs. Don't
confuse it with true love. Take some time
to get to know the Aztecs first. Do they
get along with their mother? What are
their career goals? Do they want children?
When you go out to dinner with the Aztecs,
do they look at their reflection as they
walk by a window? Could be a sign they're
looking out for you buddy. You've fallen
for ancient cultures before. Remember the
Visigoths? Remember when you brought them
home to meet your parents and they raped
all the women in your family and killed
the men except for you because you
pretended to be dead and then they burned
your house down? I know I should give the
Aztecs a fair chance, but I just don't
want to see you get hurt again. Guard
your heart, Stik, guard your heart.

Mike Haley, "a former homosexual,"
wrote to Jon Kinnally, executive story editor of Will
& Grace, regarding an episode that
portrays ex-gays as hypocrites who attend "Christian
therapy" meetings to find dates. He told
Kinnally that he felt the show "grossly
misrepresented thousands of individuals
struggling to come out of homosexuality."
Haley requested a meeting with Kinnally to talk
about it. Kinnally wrote back, "In response
to your request for a meeting, well, I think I
can read between the lines. I'm 6'1," brown
hair, green eyes and I'm into rollerblading,
baking cookies, and cleaning up afterwards. My
