Over seven years after the Right Wing 24/7 drumbeat of blue dress stains and Oral Office sex while dismissing issues like blood-surging terrorism, whose fast-rising erection would soon drive a hole through American buildings, economy and lives, the Right Wing Noise Machine „ wants you to get past the NACPLA (North American Congressman on Page Love Association) story and back on to real issues. Um, except Iraq.

Notwithstanding that Hannity, Limbaugh, et al have never actually dropped Clinton's cigareous proclivities from their "We Be Godlier Better Than Them „ " litany of Democratic sins, they now bed their "Let's Move on to Everything but the Rape of Soul Taking Place Everyday in Iraq „ " sincerity by inserting GOP talking points issues like the thirty-years ago Three Standing Ovations „ for Congressman Gerry Studds' and Nancy Pelosi's marching gay proudly in a parade three positions from a NAMBLA-type.

In reality, they are just as happy that the Foley sex-mail is keeping America from talking about the issues that actually matter. But let's just say for the moment that the Republican fluffers aren't just sucking air and really do wish to get back to the important issues, why is it that they don't want to speak about as real an issue as you can get...the ever-worsening bloodbath in Iraq?

Why would they rather repeat, ad Hannity, years ago stories of Saddam's Rape Rooms and Torture Chambers „ ," which may be relevant, but not the hundred thousand Iraqis who have been murdered since we invaded?

Why do they want to talk about how the issue of "Fighting Them over There So We Don't Have to Fight Them over Here „ " while 2700 and counting of our finest have been dying over there so they won't be able to live over here?

Why is it that they don't trust their listeners with the whole truth?

The answer is as easy as a horny, fifty-two-year old Congressman.

If they told the whole truth about anything, their fans who provide them with gazillion dollar contracts might not do what they want them Republican...and yeah, buy their books.

It's never been about the issues with the Lords of Loud. It's only been about hauling in big contracts and defeating the Democrats - unless they're Republicrats like Joe Leiberman or Zel Miller.

So when Hannity comes on this Monday afternoon and feints concern for the youngsters on the Hill to preface his defense of every Republican who concealed Foley's stalking of Hill's youngsters, or when O'Reilly cloaks pimping the sales of "Culture Warrior" in "Looking Out For You „ rhetoric, or Fox News plys you with glasses of "We Report. You Decide „ ,"while their top "We Report, You Decide „ guy is the "never-biased" (so says Bill O) Brit Hume, remember that it's only one issue they're concerned Republican...and yeah, selling their books.

But the fault not only lies with those who over pour the seductive half-truths to get you to come home with them.
It's also because so many of us have allowed it. Ask yourself, why do we find the jismatic death of scads of potential children more riveting than the death of real live kids in Iraq? Why do we tolerate these news twisters from telling us the entire truth of matters so freaking important? Simple. And so wholly unfortunate.

Whether Dem or Pub, revealing the bloody news of the debacle of Iraq in its entirety just isn't as easily swallowed as a Congressman's semen. Or maybe I'm just yanking my chain.
