The Blizzard of 2005 finally makes its' appearance. At 2:30 PM. La. You want to know what's so annoying? Schools here didn't even bother opening today. Back when I was a kid if there wasn't at least 6" already on the ground you could just suck it up and walk that half-a-mile to the bus stop, gol'darnit. And there weren't any parents with warmed-up SUVs waiting for you, either. Was the world safer then, or are people just such raging pussified asshats today? Christ.

ascism and the WH #uck-slaves of the whore media
"How is it that an administration that screened thousands of people for attendance at Bush campaign rallies repeatedly let a fake reporter into the sanctorum of the White House pressroom under a false name?"

Jeff Gannon's buddies in the misadministration have deleted the words "gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender" from the title of the "Suicide Prevention Among Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Individuals" workshop.

"It is a brilliant strategy. When the Bush administration isn't using taxpayers' money to buy its own fake news, it does everything it can to shut out and pillory real reporters who might tell Americans what is happening"
- Frank Rich.
CLM silent on security issue
Apparently it's A-OK that a gay male prostitute was given secret, classified National Security documents that exposed a covert CIA operative, by someone in the Bush misadministration.
Imagine the media explosion if a male escort had been discovered operating as a correspondent in the Clinton White House... Then imagine the constant screaming on radio, on television, on Capitol Hill, in the Washington press corps - and listen to the placid mumbling of the "liberal" media now.
- Joe Conason.
“This isn’t even in the news section, this is in the style section,” the aide added. “I just think this is pathetic.
Mr. Blitzer didn't question Mr. Guckert's outrageous assertion that he adopted a fake name because "Jeff Gannon is easier to pronounce and easier to remember." Mr. Blitzer never questioned Gannon/Guckert's assertion that Talon News "is a separate, independent news division" of GOPUSA. Only in a brief follow-up interview a day later did he ask Gannon/Guckert to explain why he was questioned by the FBI in the case that may send legitimate reporters to jail: Mr. Guckert has at times implied that he either saw or possessed a classified memo identifying Valerie Plame as a CIA operative.
Might that memo have come from the same officials who looked after "Jeff Gannon's" press credentials? Did Mr. Guckert have any connection with CNN's own Robert Novak, whose publication of Ms. Plame's name started this investigation in the first place? The anchor didn't go there.
- Frank Rich, god bless him, probably somewhere on page 29, section Z of the NY Times.
Meanwhile, the #ucking chickenshit cowardly Dems are spinelessly folding into their usual gutless lumps of ineffectual, pointless superfluousness.
Some staffers are frustrated with the Democrats’ inability to raise the prostitution issue, which many agree would have certainly been raised had a prostitute surfaced in the Clinton White House.

"[A] phony journalist, planted by a Republican organisation, used by the White House press secretary to interrupt questions from the press corps, protected from FBI vetting by the press office, disseminating smears about its critics and opponents, some of them gay-baiting, was unmasked not only as a hireling and fraud but as a gay prostitute."

ringing honor and integrity back to the White House
Digby discusses the issue that is "threatening the GOP" - and how the pathetic, cowering Dems are still "ignoring the naked, gay conservative prostitute in the middle of the family values White House living room."
And Eric Boehlert in Salon asks, "Why was a gay male prostitute given access to the White House press room after being turned down for Capitol Hill press credentials?"
Whether news that Guckert was able to go from posting his gay male escort services online to being ushered into the White House under a phony name on behalf of a fake news organization - and was never asked to pass an FBI background check - constitutes a real "story" among the Republican Party faithful, or the mainstream press corps, remains to be seen.
Puh - the "mainstream media' has already choked, much like Gannon with a big hot Rovian dick in his mouth:
After a 30-minute sit-down with McClellan, WHCA President Ron Hutcheson said he believed the current system was fine and hesitated to have the correspondents' association play a bigger role in distributing press passes.

America's Favorite Junkie back in the news
The prosecutor investigating whether whiny, cystic lardass Rush Limbaugh illegally bought drugs told the Florida Supreme Court on Monday that investigators should be allowed to review the loathsome, hopped-up windbag's medical records.
Assistant State Attorney James Martz, responding to arguments Limbaugh and his attorneys made asking that the records remain sealed, told the court "Privacy rights cannot operate as an impenetrable shield to conceal, camouflage, or secrete evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Dickheads.''
Limbaugh had no comment, as he was busy celebrating his third divorce by proinging his latest #uckstick, CNN's obviously insane Daryn "Duh?" Kagan.

Howard Kurtz, WH WHore, outstupids himself
The continuing saga of a slimy shill getting paid by a once-reputable news organization for being a spooge-dripping gpuke towelboy.
Today's chapter: In another lefty-blogger-bashing column in the WaComPo, wHoreward either completely misses the point or chooses to, well, prostitute himself - and gets a new nickname in the process: "Kneepads."
Blah blah blah. Spurt spurt spurt. Gee, Howie, did you make as big a stink when Bill Clinton was being hounded? Or Eason Jordan? What about when Gannon himself "reported" last year - falsely, what a surprise - that a former Kerry intern had had an affair with the senator? You hypocritical whore. How can you sleep at night with the WH dick jammed up your ass like that? Is that why you always have that shit-eating grin on your stupid phiz? Well, here's something special, just for you -

Via e-mail from Karl F, the Freedom of Information Act request from Reps Slaughter and Conyers, to Homeland Security:
How much longer must we wait for answers? By his own implication 'Mr. Gannon' has had access to classified documents that contained the identity of an undercover agent for the CIA. The American people deserve to know how this man was able to get access not only to the White House briefing room but also these very sensitive documents.
And Judd L. wonders if there's another "Jeff Gannon" out there. From yesterday's press briefing with Scottie:

Yes, my name is Heywood Jablowmie, and I'd like to apply for a press pass?
Moral high ground, national security and accountability
"Guckert was denied similar credentials to cover Capitol Hill because of questions about his legitimacy as a reporter." - the Houston Chronicle.
Remember how the g-pukes gloated that they would bring honor and respectability back to the White House? How do they now explain the access a gay prostitute using a false name got to not only the WH and classified CIA files, but to the president? Did he sign a loyalty oath? Who signed off on his background check when he applied for access to the president? Did the Secret Service know Gannon was a) an alias, and b) a rent-boy? What the hell was a gay hooker doing in the White House press room?
The way the rightwing knuckledraggers freaked out over Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinski, you'd think they'd be upset when the Bush misadministration gets caught giving WH access to a gay prostitute. Unless they really didn't care about the president's "moral values" and just wanted a witch hunt to remove him from office...

A gay old time
Faithful readers are telling me that WH press-tool Scott McClellan has been seen frequenting gay bars with 'Jeff Gannon.' Not that there's anything wrong with two hopped-up-on-Jebus family-value members of the Gay Bashing Party wanting to keep their choice of illicit sex partners secret.
Links! I need links!!
Which is probably what Scott and Jeff are screaming right now, too.

Howard Kurtz, WH whore
wHo(re)ward is still slapping on the lubricant. Here he is with CNN's "blog reporter" Jacki Schechner:
Because you, too, are such a shameless whore for the GOP, Howie! LOL.
KURTZ: He had registered the addresses, he said the sites never actually went up.
SCHECHNER: Well, we found it. Or actually, one of the bloggers found it. We found it through the blog. Americablog.com which is a liberal site found it. Now we would show you that but the pictures on that site are actually kind of racey. So we didn't want to go there but Wonkette.com has it as well. And you can read about that story.
KURTZ: She has the PG version?
SCHECHNER: She has the PG version and then she has a link to the sort of X-rated version.
KURTZ: So just like in primetime television sex apparently sells based on these pictures.
SCHECHNER: They were and actually they were pretty graphically displayed. And then we went back and they were covered over.
KURTZ: Although what this has to do with Jeff Gannon's job at the White House -- whether was criticized on the substance is debatable.
You are such a pathetic #ucking suckjob, Howie.

eporters to meet with White House on just who the #uck can get into these damn briefings
Members of the White House Correspondents' Association plan to meet with WH press secretary Scott McClellen to 'discuss tightening the White House press-credentialing process' in the wake of the disgraceful gay prostitute episode.
The meeting follows the recent uproar over James Guckert, a former White House "reporter" for a fake "news" "organization" who has gone by the aliases Jeff Gannon, Bulldog, Hootie McBoob and Hotcommandosantorum and still managed to not only receive access to confidential CIA files, but to get thisclose to Monkey McMoron.
Among the potential changes to the credentialing system: tighter restrictions on who can receive daily press passes, such as those Smegfilledmilitarystud had obtained; and a more active role by the WHCA in approving requests or credentials.

hite House's fake journalist busted. Again.
GOP pet propagandist outed by his own gay men's porno websites as a liar and a gay hooker. But a reasonably well-hung lying gay hooker, so he has that going for him.
AmericaBlog gets the goods on 'Jeff "Hot militarycornholerforJesus" Gannon.'
Warning: some pictures are definately unsafe for work.
