Bush was "clearly taken aback” when someone asked him what he thought of the gay-cowboy movie “Brokeback Mountain,” says Carol Marin today in S-T. He “looked like his skin itched.” It’s “a start anyway” that he had heard about it.
Stop. I can stand so much droll and no more. So what, state of union speech last night. Let’s talk about this delicious “Mountain” story. The gals and guys at Ric’s (wherever) had such a fun time with it Saturday night. It told us soooooo much about Dubya, as if we didn’t know already.
He don’t know s—t about unions anyway, gay or any other kind. Hey. People Mag — I said People, did you hear me? — says this movie is huge in Waco. Oh my. “Bar’s boy [?] needs a lot of help right now.” Polls, you know.
Switch to thin-lipped, no-nonsense, I’m-not-kidding statement of cold fact:
George W. Bush is an isolated man living in an insular, hermetically sealed world of advisers who don't challenge him, receiving advice born of lethally bad intelligence.
There. Carol feels better already.
Read the rest for yourself. It’s damn good moveon.org-the-world-can’t-wait stuff. Carol has encapsulated beautifully what the gang is saying at Ric’s (wherever). It’s the base, stupid.
