But It's Still Sacred, Right?

Just in time for Christmas Karl Rove, the hypocritical asshole Senior Republican Advisor who engineered W's re-election strategy of mobilizing the Christian right against such issues as gay marriage and abortion, has been granted a divorce from his second wife Darby.  (Darby sounds like a name for a racehorse, but in a party filled with Tripps, Mitts, and Saxbys, well it kinda fits.  Still, Republican women love those out of date clothes with big fabric flowers on them so I bet she looks like she crossed the finish line first.)  "Karlby" were married for 24 years, a record in Republican political circles.  However, they apparently spent Christmas together (for the sake of the children I'm sure) and lying sack of shit spokesperson Dana Perino said "They maintain a strong friendship, and they both feel that that friendship is a source of comfort and inspiration for their friends and family".  Aww, how cute.  I often look at two people who can't stand each other and think Wow, how inspiring!  I'm having a crappy day, but I take comfort in the fact that Karlby are such great friends.  In a break from GOP tradition, Karl did not leave his wife for another man.

Now I may be wrong, but when you've carried the torch for Jesus and told the sheep faithful that you were doing everything in your power to protect marriage from the godless homosexuals, it seems to me that divorce would be unthinkable.  I mean, he's wrecked two marriages now.  That's two more than I've trashed.  How do you get to use the argument that two men or two women cannot get married because they'd ruin it after you've failed twice?  Or even once for that matter?  None of this will matter a bit to the culture warriors bent on keeping gay people as subclass citizens.  I don't hear any mega church preachers calling for them to reconsider, offer counseling, or even trashing them in the media for destroying a sacred institution.  Nope.  I guess it's OK as long as you're not gay, but we already knew that.  Is that hypocritical?  In the words of another great genius of our time...

You Betcha!
