SCANDAL ALERT: Condi Rice co-owns a house with a Stanford liberal documentary director who used to make liberal documentaries with Bill Moyers! What a hypocrite. Rice, of course, works for an administration that is totally conservative and always doing things against liberals — and now we find out that she shares a home with a liberal?
Gasp! Oh shame!!
Good grief! You're a hypocrite because you happen to live with people who don't share your beliefs??? How idiotic (but typical) a statement is that? There are many people who have lived and live (quite harmoniously, thank you very much) with others who don't share either their political or religious beliefs. This fact does not make them hypocrites, it makes them inclusive and tolerant. Uh, can you say James Carville and Mary Joe Matalin, for one?
The article goes on to say:
According to Washington Post diplomatic correspondent Glenn Kessler’s book about Condi — which we sort of flipped through, but obviously not closely enough — Rice owns a house with liberal filmmaker Randy Bean. Oh, and there’s a third co-owner, too: “CoitBlacker, a Stanford professor who is openly gay.” Oh, and Randy Bean’s a woman.
Horrors!! So, anyone who co-owns or shares a house with another person of the same sex is automatically assumed gay? How bigoted and small thinking is that? And frankly, even if she happened to be gay, so what? There are gays who happen to be Republican. I've met a few, not many, but they do exist. And in fact, some of those do not lobby for gay marriage. I met one gay man, recently, who does not feel the need to legalize marriage for gays, and he's a Democrat! Does that make him a hypocrite, or is it okay because he's gay? I have a few gay male friends, in the theatre, who I dearly love, and I certainly do not consider myself a hypocrite.
I also find it interesting that Wonkette does not mention (although does link to) an article that states that Blacker sold his share back to Bean and Rice, knowing full well that most people don't bother reading past the original post. It also explains how the co-ownership came to be:
Bean explained the joint ownership and line of credit..... by saying she had medical bills which left her financially drained and Rice helped her by co-purchasing the house along with a third person, Coit Blacker.And nowhere in either article does it state that they actually live in that house together. All it mentions (in the rawstory.com article) is that the real estate records show Rice is a co-owner.
Libs, in their judgemental way, tend to lump all Republicans together as if there was one standard set of traits attributable to Republicans, and frankly there's not. Republicans come in many shapes, forms and sizes: from liberal to ultra conservative. You can't peg us. So stop showing your ignorance.
But what I found most offensive, was the typical foul comments left by Wonkette's readers. Which again, just illustrates how moronic and distasteful they can be.
