This afternoon, actor Heath Ledger was found dead of an apparent drug overdose in the apartment of Mary Kate-Olsen, a known GOP operative. I wouldn’t be surprised if George Bush’s name was on the prescription labels, too. It all goes back to the religious right’s backlash against Brokeback Mountain and the seething hatred all conservatives have for same-sex couples. Whether it’s Ledger/Gylellynyhal, or Kerry/Edwards, Bush just can’t stand the thought of two men being madly in love with one another.
It means that Dick Cheney’s star is fading. He used to be the go-to guy when people needed to be eliminated.
Update: BlameBush has the goods
