Shower Curtain Chronicles: A Word On FoleyGate

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

A Word On FoleyGate

Brian Ross, the reporter who broke this story has stated on national television that Republicans brought the story to him. Hmmm. It seems to me that a party that knows it is about to lose power because it is riddled with unprecedented corruption, lied us into an illegal war, destroyed our country's image around the world, etc., etc., etc...would prefer to have their demise remembered as the result of an unfortunate sex scandal perpetrated by "one of those awful homosexuals who fooled us into thinking he was one of us." Much easier to recover from the latter public memory than the former.
The Republicans know what the polls are saying. They know they're going down anyway. Foleygate is damage control and an investment in their future. Just imagine every Republican talking head for the next two years and beyond, everytime they're asked about why they lost the 2006 election. The first words out of their mouths will be "we're being punished for the unfortunate actions of one person." And, the corporate media will be happy to assist them in their charade, moulding the false public memory that will allow the fascists a swifter return to power.
