popped into Ellen DeGeneres
talk show today. And, like a good patriot, DeGeneres forced the first daughter to ring up her daddy, President Bush.
Young Jenna seemed excited at first, but the dread soon sets in: “I’m going to get into trouble… I’m not going to get any Christmas presents”. All for calling her father on national television? Sheesh, the Bush’s must run their house like Guantanamo.
No, but seriously, Bush eventually gets on the line and sounds, well, kind of sweet. We were almost endeared, but then remember all his past sins and our Awwwww” turned in “Ahhhhhh!”
OK. The fake Leland is back and still the pond scum that he/she/it was before. And, again, I say thanks for the compliment. If my opinions so upset someone that he/she/it needs to try to attempt to discredit me with racist or religionist or other kinds of fake posts then I must be accomplishing something. Thanks again!
ohno, you give people FAR too much credit! If they already disagreed with his demonization of gays they wouldn’t be letting him get away with it. They saw “nice” Ellen be nice to him ipso facto he must not be so bad. Thought bubble: “Well America’s #1 Lesbian treated him just like anyone else so he MUST be okay.”
What the housewives who watch her show occasionally need to see is her not running from idiots in the Right wing but calling bullshit on them or not having their spawn on to generate an ick-making “let’s call the President” moment.
If it was okay for her to effectively flame Isaiah Washington in absentia for using the F word [and it certainly was] then surely something remotely similar is appropriate for the man who would rip us out of the US Constitution! Or don’t book any of the Bush Mob at all.
poorpoor. That would be “fag’s eyes” with an apostrophe and you can kiss my hate and blow me at the same time.
1. The focus of this discussion has been on her father and Ellen. No one’s been “hating on” [where DID you learn English?] Jenna.
2. But, now that you mention it, let’s consider that her “book about dealing with AIDS” is one of the safe, noncontroversial ones. Her subject, a straight woman, was infected as a child. So she’s one of the classic “innocent victims of AIDS”â€”not one of those dirty fags. The topic of mother-to-child transmission IS very important. It’s estimated that a third of the pregnant women in South Africa are HIV positive and too few of them have access to the medicines/information that would prevent infecting their fetuses.
3. Still, as more than one person has suggested: instead of writing books about AIDS “innocents” she should be talking to her father about the obscene requirements of his HIV/AIDS funding programs that require the teaching of abstinence and discouragement of the use of condoms. Brazil turned down $40 million, repeat, MILLION in assistance because of that requirement. Some AIDS experts blame Bush for the deaths of more people than Reagan because they were denied access to condoms.
