You probably remember Bob McDonnell, (“Taliban Bob”, “Governor Ultrasound” or “Governor Gifty” depending on your focus point ) as the handsome governor of Virginia who was on Willie’s shortlist for Veep.
Or, you just might remember him in his role as “Taliban Bob“, one of Virginia’s leading homophobes.
It’s the juxtaposition of the last two that make this weird.
In the “money for favors” part, the McDonnells, both of them, are on trial for that bit of quid pro quo. But, our boy Bobby doesn’t want to vacation at the “stony lonesome” for the next few years. Not to fear. Bobby has a plan! He’ll just throw his wife under the bus. (Bus, hell! he’s trying to bring a damn steam roller into the courtroom.)
You see, this was all her fault. He didn’t know what was happening, because he was too busy doing great deeds for the people of Virginia and trying to avoid his wife with her serpent’s tongue. Plus, he suspects she was “doing the nasty” with Mr. Williams and he didn’t know Rolex was such an expensive watch.
You can imagine the ruckus at home after the day’s trial. That’s all you can do though, is imagine it. Seems Bobby has left the building. He’s moved in with…………wait for it………. A GAY PRIEST! Rev. Wayne Ball, was the pastor of Norfolk’s Holy Trinity Church. (“Was” because after getting busted for having “guy sex” in a park’s parking lot last year, the church shipped him off to Highland Springs.)
Every time I run across a vociferous homophobe like Bobby, I keep thinking about that misquoted Shakespeare quote: “Methinks he doth protest too much!” The actual quote is “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” (Who says my posts aren’t educational?)
So……pretty Bobby, the question is: “is you is or is you ain’t”? Have you given up on women, or just Maureen? Inquiring minds want to know! (As well as a few inmates at the Federal Hotel.)
Don’t you just love Repugnut “family values”?
