And Now, a Couple of Jackasses

Jack Ass #1:

Republican state Sen. Roy Ashburn said Monday he is gay, ending days of speculation that began after his arrest last week for investigation of driving under the influence.

Ashburn, who consistently voted against gay rights measures during his 14 years in the state Legislature, came out in an interview with KERN radio in Bakersfield, the area he represents.

Well, now that he’s out of the closet, will he man up and do what’s right? Nope:

“I felt my duty – and I still feel this way – is to represent my constituents, not my own point of view, not my own internal conflict,” he told Barks.

Of course, being gay wasn’t his internal conflict. Being raised in a bigoted home was his internal conflict. And apparently, he plans to continue down that path.


Jack ass # 2:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — who has gone to great lengths to hype the supposed dangers of a big government takeover of American health care — admitted over the weekend that she used to get her treatment in Canada’s single-payer system.

“We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada,” Palin said in her first Canadian appearance since stepping down as governor of Alaska. “And I think now, isn’t that ironic?”

Yeah, real cute. She probably winked when she said it, too.

Next, in the Republican Party, George H W Bush will come out as an atheist, and Dick  Cheney will prove himself to be an excellent shot.
