Where There's A Scarlet,
There Surely Must Be A Rhett

Rhett Butler was unabashedly unapologetic for his lifestyle...

Which brings us to Mayor Oscar Goodman's recent schoolroom Show & Tell episode...

Vegas mayor defiant about telling students of his love for gin


LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sin City's flamboyant mayor was defiant and unapologetic Thursday regarding what he called "a maelstrom" of criticism for extolling gin to a class of fourth-graders.

Mayor Oscar Goodman said he was just being himself when he told elementary school students that drinking was one of his hobbies and that the one thing he would want if stranded on an island is a bottle of gin.

"I answered the question honestly and truthfully," Goodman told reporters during his weekly news conference. "I'm not going to lie to children. I'm not going to say I would take a teddy bear or a Bible or something like that, when that is not my first thought."

Asked by a reporter if he had a drinking problem, Goodman answered, "Oh, absolutely not. I love to drink." LINK

What did you learn in school today, kids?

Lesson #1: Mayor Oscar is unabashedly unapologetic for his lifestyle.

Lesson #2: What happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas if the fascist fundies can find something to be outraged against...

Lesson #3: Fascist fundie parental influence must be so pitifully weak that kids need the mayor of Sin City to be a (lying) role model.

Lesson #4: Gay Porn Hookers in the White House press corps are A OK!

Alcohol and gambling are BIG BUSINESS in Vegas.

We all know that Vegas casino owners hire Mormons to count the money because they're trustworthy.

That's just good business.

But demanding an apology from Mayor Oscar for his honest answer would be like impeaching a president for adultery or condoning gay porn hookers in the White House.

Bad business all around.

You go, Mayor Oscar!
