Do you recognize the name Rob Ford? Rob is the embattled mayor of Toronto who is currently going through a PR nightmare. Like former DC mayor Marion Berry before him, Rob was caught on video smoking crack. He's admitted to doing so, but explained that he only did it because he was piss- drunk at the time. Says he's not a drug addict... but he WILL get help for his DRINKING problem. Oh, and he wanted everyone to know that the woman who accused him of saying that he wanted to perform cunnilingus on her was lying. But he didn't use the term ‘cunnilingus’; he used the much cruder (and infinitely more popular) 2- word term for it... on live TV.
Meanwhile, in Houston, an ultra- conservative Republican named Dave Wilson was running for a seat on the Houston Community College Board of Trustees... in a predominantly black district. So, how does a conservative ideologue win the hearts and minds of people who hate his politics? Simple; you pretend you're black. It worked, and Dave got the votes he needed. It's outrageous... but kinda funny. Besides, it's up to the voter to research their candidates. Sometimes you WANT to hate certain people, but, in spite of yourself, you like them. It explains the accepted existence of such 'luminaries' as Donald Trump, Gene Simmons, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Kate Gosselin and a whole host of others. That's our question: WHO DO YOU HATE TO LOVE?
There were a few good answers here and there, but, frankly, I'm not gonna go through them all today. Have our Men's Room Black Party tonight at Elysian Fields, so I've been a little distracted. Hope to see you there tonight. We're serving hot dogs, bitches! Hot dogs!
