ABC News: Watch for Bush-Blair 'Homo-Eroticism' at Tonight's Press Conference
ABC News ^ | Thursday, May 25, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 05/25/2006 11:16:36 AM PDT by kristinn

ABC News, in their Web column on all things political called The Note, wallowed in the gutter today with their advice to those who view tonight's White House press conference with President Bush and Prime Minister Blair to watch for "sheer homo-eroticism" between the two wartime allies.

When one thinks of the great wartime alliances between the United States and Great Britain, "homo-eroticism" is not what one thinks of when Roosevelt and Churchill, and Reagan and Thatcher come to mind. Neither does it come to mind with Bush and Blair, except for the drive-by media.

Text of the ABC News report:

484 members of the Gang of 500 think Tony Blair is smarter, more articulate, more principled, and more visionary than Geroge W. Bush; their Brit counterparts think those Gang members are plonkers and muppets.

All of this will be on display when toothpaste buddies Bush and Blair ruin everyone's evening by holding a plush joint newser after or on Old Media deadlines.

A whole lotta thumbsuckin' going on as everyone vamps for the post-East Coast network news full press conference at 7:30 pm ET.

"This will be the President's 25th full press conference since taking office in 2001. His last press conference was on April 28 in the Rose Garden and was originally billed as just a statement on the economy. That day the President took questions from 15 different reporters," reports ABC News' Karen Travers, rattling off those stats as if they were sports scores.

Do not expect any announcements on troop withdrawals. The White House said Wednesday that such talk is "premature" and that those decisions will still turn on conditions on the ground. But watch closely the nuance, the body language, the bonhomie, and the sheer homo-eroticism (We are sort of kidding about that last one, Mr. President.).

"homo-eroticism" is not what one thinks of when... Reagan and Thatcher... come to mind.

If only because Maggie Thatcher isn't a man!

Boy, whomever runs the show at ABC News is just wishing for a whooping from the big dogs at Disney. Betweeen this and the Hassert non story they are going off the cliff. But that's ok. We here at FR can just stand on the edge of the cliff and blow them kisses as they fall.

Any of these people gay, perchance? Or is it that the media is so messed up that they see gayness everywhere.

Read the "subtext" and they are saying that manly men are attractive to them and they resent them for it (cause we can't have them, waah!).

ABC News is sinking even lower in the credibility ratings.

Last week, it was revealed that a rabid gun-grabber was covering gun-control issues for ABC.

Now an ABC blog is engaged in disrespectful cheap shots against the President and the leader of our strongest ally.

I haven't watched ABC News in a long time, and I don't feel I've missed anything worth watching.

Barf.

Don't foget the "Dennis Hastert is under investigation byt the Justice Department" Fitzmas style piece of fiction by ABC .

ABC is clearly slime.
Their minds have been in the gutter for as long as I can remember, especially when the America-hating Canadian clown Peter Jennings was the anchor.

FREEP ABC on this issue...

Attention: support@abcnews.go.com

In the article written on ABC News's website...

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/TheNote/story?id=156238

Scroll down a way to the following...

-excerpt-

All of this will be on display when toothpaste buddies Bush and Blair ruin everyone's evening by holding a plush joint newser after or on Old Media deadlines.

A whole lotta thumbsuckin' going on as everyone vamps for the post-East Coast network news full press conference at 7:30 pm ET.

"This will be the President's 25th full press conference since taking office in 2001. His last press conference was on April 28 in the Rose Garden and was originally billed as just a statement on the economy. That day the President took questions from 15 different reporters," reports ABC News' Karen Travers, rattling off those stats as if they were sports scores.

Do not expect any announcements on troop withdrawals. The White House said Wednesday that such talk is "premature" and that those decisions will still turn on conditions on the ground. But watch closely the nuance, the body language, the bonhomie, and the sheer homo-eroticism (We are sort of kidding about that last one, Mr. President.).

-end excerpt-

Please send this message to the appropriate department manager. I want to have a response that indicates what your management thinks about the representation this article provides for your organization. While I expect to hear something about the 1st amendment, but that does not mean it is appropriate to say anything, it is merely legal to do so.

Regards,

"homo-eroticism" is not what one thinks of when Roosevelt and Churchill, and Reagan and Thatcher come to mind.

In Reagan and Thatcher case "homo-eroticism" its a technical impossibility

What a long read! Mark Halperin gives credence to the old saying, "An apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Apparently, he inherited his politics from his father, Morton Halperin. ABC is rapidly deserving of the title, "The Cesspool of Journalism".

You simplified the truth "real good", ohio (...you, too, STARWISE).

He was hosting the foreign guest at his ranch, and the guest was having difficulty walking up that path. And in ME culture such courtesies are expected as the one President Bush extended.

Now here's a thought: what kind of person would bring that incident onto this thread when it is the sickness of ABC News that is on display here and the rest of us are gagging at THAT??

What kind of person, indeed...

A valid question, tx.

I'd like an answer, if you wouldn't mind, proud.

Why, on a thread about despicable behavior from the MSM, and a vile, offensive 'joke' at the expense of two honorable men, would you bring up the kind and innocent assistance of an elderly man by one of those two honorable men?

What kind of thinking diverts you so quickly from the subject of the rotten left's valueless attacks, to an attack on the President yourself?
