So the latest right-wing hypocritical sex scandal has gone from predictably boilerplate to ridiculous verging on surreal. You may have heard about it: Bob Allen, the Florida state representative/ McCain presidential campaign co-chair who got busted for offering a male cop $20 to blow him in a public bathroom, is now claiming that he did what he did because he was intimidated by the big scary black man.
I have a piece about it over at the Blowfish Blog: a follow-up to last week’s thoughtful spew on right-wing sexual hypocrisy, this one titled Right Wing Hypocrisy Part Two: The Scary Black Men Made Me Do It! Here’s an excerpt:
Right. Every guy I know, when heâs in a public place in a situation where he feels threatened, tries to get out of it by offering the purported threatener $20 to suck his cock. I mean, that’s just self-preservation. It’s not like he actually wanted to suck the guyâs cock. He was simply trying to defuse a potentially dangerous situation.
Really. Youâve done that, guys… right? Youâre in an alley or a deserted park at night, you see a guy you think might be a mugger… you offer him $20 to give him a blowjob. Itâs in all the police brochures on urban safety. Itâs just plain common sense.
I said it about Ted Haggard, and Iâll say it again now:
Just how stupid does he think we are?
So hereâs what I think is really going on.
