June 17, 2009
One more Republican hypocrite, Nevada Senator John Ensign, has admitted to cheating on his wife—with the spouse of a “close friend” from December 2007 to August 2008. Elected in 2000 and reelected in 2006, Ensign has been a rising star among Republicans. He loudly demanded the resignation of Larry Craig in September 2007, calling Craig a "disgrace" after he was arrested in June 2007 in an airport men's restroom. As is usual with these Republican affairs, Ensign's wife, Darlene, having no apparent life of her own, intends to stand beside her spouse, saying, “Our marriage has become stronger and I love my husband." After a short public apology on Tuesday, Ensign said he remains “committed” to his Senate seat. I guess these things are becoming routine in Republican circles.
Funniest Line Ever: Living legend lesbian comedian Lily Tomlin (Say that five times fast!) on Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Season 5 last night: “Since olive oil comes from olives and peanut oil comes from peanuts, I worry about where baby oil comes from.”

The Obama Administration and Congress continue to play “cat and mouse” with the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell issue, according to an article today in Rod 2.0, who quotes from the Advocate.com website. While Obama says any lasting solution needs to be enacted legislatively, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calls on the Administration to issue an executive order halting enforcement of the shameful policy. Meanwhile, the lives of gay people continue to be devastated on a daily basis as they are discharged from the military for being honest. Over 240 in the short time frame since Obama took office, according to the Servicemember's Legal Defense Network. When will the nightmare end?

Openly gay MTV/VH1/LOGO/Comedy Central network guru, Brian Graden, 46, who brought us South Park and an assortment of innovative, reality-based programming, including The Osbournes, is leaving his eleven year position as President of Entertainment. Once credited with saving the parent MTV Network giant, he is now a victim of declining ad revenue in a down turned economy. In tune with a basic overhaul within the company, his position is being eliminated, a move I find ill-advised. The story was first reported by the New York Post .

The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday morning that self-proclaimed 9/11 terrorist mastermind detainee, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, told military officials he fingered people he didn’t even know and made up other stories so the CIA would stop torturing him with waterboarding. Jameel Jaffer, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained documents detailing the revelations through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, said the prisoner’s words “underscore the unreliability of statements obtained by torture." Former Vice President Dick Cheney, under whose administration waterboarding became routine, maintains the US “never tortured.” The CIA issued statements taking issue with the ACLU’s assertion that “harsh techniques” to obtain information have been largely ineffective. "The CIA plainly has a very different take on its past interrogation practices," said Paul Gimigliano, an agency spokesman. Can you say, “Naturally!” and “Oh, brother!” and “When will they ever learn?”

Spencer Pratt photo where he fantasizes about grabbing Al Roker's nuts
Another admitted Republican, Spencer Pratt, now says his new found relationship with Jesus kept him from killing Al Roker. “Just a couple of weeks ago I would have ripped that weatherman’s head off for talking to my wife like that,” he told the paparazzi as he walked down a New York Street. In response, an indignant Al said to Meredith Vieira on the Today show Tuesday morning, that had Spencer tried such a thing, “I would’ve dumped him like a bag of dirt!”
