Oh my gawd – could this get any creepier (or infuriating)?

At this point in the game I thought I’d be numb and in a blissful state of complete apathy, but nooooooooo, not me, I just can’t seem to get it through my thick skull that this administration consists of nothing but hacks, lackeys, and sanctimonious hypocrites who have the unmitigated gall to tell us how to live our lives morally while living their own lives “on the sleaze”.

And silly me, each time one of these people takes a big fall off the altar of religious fraud and faux sanctimony, I think there just can’t possibly be anymore of these pathetic excuses for government appointees left when BAM, I’m jolted from my naivety by another one going down hard.

Is there anyone in this administration that isn’t a complete and total embarrassment?

So who is the latest-hypocrite-sleazebag-posing-as-a holier-than-thou-Bush-official-in-a-high-government-position-tasked -with-huge-responsibilities-with-dire-consequences-should-he-fail to be exposed?

It’s Randall Tobias of course. And what are Randall Tobias’ job responsibilities? Why he is a one of Bush’s:

…top officials overseeing global AIDS funding to other countries and enforcing a U.S. policy, enacted during the Bush administration, that requires recipients to swear they oppose prostitution and sex trafficking. USAID adopted a similar policy in 2004.

Although as is usually the case with officials in this administration, not everyone was pleased with his approach to the job:

As the Bush administration's so-called "AIDS czar," Tobias was criticized by some for emphasizing faithfulness and abstinence over condom use to prevent the spread of AIDS. In a 2004 interview, Tobias explained his approach as "A and B and C ... Abstinence works. 'Be faithful' works. Condoms work. They all have a role. But it's not a multiple choice, where there is only one answer."

And so how pray tell did this guy screw up? Well think of the most hypocritical thing a guy in his position could do, you know kind of like the GOP Representative who serves as chairman of the “House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children” and writes laws that would among other things protect children from predators on the internet while simultaneously prowling the internet for young prey himself.

So have you guessed what took Randall down yet? Well let me help with a few details:

Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias submitted his resignation Friday, one day after confirming to ABC News that he had been a customer of a Washington, D.C. escort service whose owner has been charged by federal prosecutors with running a prostitution operation.

Oooh my blood boils! These are the same guys that are telling me that my son is evil. How much more of this crap do we have to take? And how many more times are we going to have to watch another bogus holier-than-thou embarrass this country before we get rid of the whole bunch of them?

If one more of these idiot “Bushies” gets up there and tells us how they are going to protect our families, our marriages, our children, our morals, our unborn, our delicate sensibilities, our virtue, or whatever the threat du jour is, I am going to go stark raving mad.

Anyone have a nice padded room I could rent for 18 months?

Update: Well I guess Mr. Tobias might just be the tip of the iceberg --- at least according to Cliff Schecter:

You may have read our earlier mention of the first guy to fall from the DC Madame scandal. A Deputy Secretary of State, who was a former AIDS Czar preaching abstinence while practicing whips, dips and chips with hookers in DC.

Well this thing is about to get bigger. And according to ABC News, there are names of WHITE HOUSE and PENTAGON officals on her list, and she's going to reveal all. Like, thousands of names. No, I don't exaggerate.

My friends, if you thought 2006 was a banner year for scandal, get out the popcorn, 'cause you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Personally, I'm glad you're not in a complete state of apathy. Like complacency, apathy leads to inaction, which means things never change. Anger is a good motivator for enacting change. So I'm glad these things still make you upset. As long as they don't cause you to pop a blood vessel or anything, of course.

As for this guy, what a creep.

This just in: the Hate Crimes Act passed the House, but Bush swears he's going to veto.
