I don’t understand how in the US a scandal about a guy having an affair is larger than this. Bush previously had business dealings with the current vice chairman of Clear Channel. Bush made 23 times his investment on a deal involving the Texas Rangers which was bought by said vice chairman. Howard Stern has recently begun being publically critical of Bush, and has a large audience. Clear Channel owns over 1200 radio stations thanks to the recent round of deregulations. Given all this friendliness and money-greasing, is it coincidence that Stern has been kicked off the Clear Channel network? This happened under the guise of “indecency,” but Sterns show has been the same forever. The only thing that changed is he said some critical things of Bush.
Sure, this story doesn’t have any sex in it – the only ingredient that seems to get the American publics attention, but that is ridiculous. Does no one really care that this level of corruption goes on every day?
Maybe to get the American public and media’s attention we need to juice this story up. So let’s pretend that Bush and the vice chairman of Clear Channel (Tom Hicks) are gay lovers. George broke down one day and had marital relations with his wife, so Hicks broke it off in a fit of jealousy. Hicks has been blackmailing Bush ever since, threatening to give John Ashcroft the video tapes of their love sessions (they aren’t aware Ashcroft has video tapes of everything and watches these by himself every night). They have since made up and agreed to work together to squash any dissenting opinions using the power of their public offices and radio network. In the middle of all this a lot of money changed hands and there was lots of corruption, etc, etc. Feel free to repeat this fiction wherever you’d like.
