Bush Take Two?

After eight years of divisiveness, the Decider is back in Texas. Bush 41, G.H.W. Bush said he would like to see his other son, Jeb Bush run for president.

He’s joking! I hope!

 

Invocation Take Two?

Rev. Rick Warren gave the invocation at the Presidential inauguration. The decision angered pro choice and gay marriage advocates and led to criticism of Obama and Warren. Rev. Warren supported Prop. 8 in CA.

Openly gay, Episcopalian Bishop, Gene Robinson was selected to deliver the invocation at the kickoff event of the inaugural weekend. The event was held at the Lincoln Memorial two days before Obama's swearing in. HBO's exclusive live broadcast did not include the invocation. HBO omitted the invocation from their live broadcast. Some gay activists maintain that this was a slight on the part of the Obama administration.

 

Oh Boy!

Boy George was sentenced to 15 months in jail after being convicted in a London court of falsely imprisoning a male escort. He could end up being the male escort in his new digs.
