More on Lesbian Gangs!!!

Jim Burroway

July 11th, 2007

Remember those all those rampaging Lesbian gangs that Fox News discovered? Rod Wheeler told Bill O’Reilly that the nation’s capital was being overrun by lesbian gangs. Wheeler has now spun down his rhetoric from the no-spin zone:

During the O’Reilly Factor segment on June 21st, while engaged in a discussion on Lesbian gangs, I inadvertently stated that gang members carry pistols that are painted pink and call themselves the “Pink Pistol Packing Group.” I was not referring to the gay rights group “Pink Pistols” who advocates for the lawful rights of gays to carry weapons for protection. Further, I mentioned that there are “over 150 of these gangs” in the greater Washington DC area. What I actually meant is that there are over 150 gangs in the Washington DC area, some of which are in fact lesbian gangs. Lastly, I mentioned in the segment that there is this “national epidemic” of lesbian gangs. A better choice of words would have been to say that there is a growing concern nationally, and especially in major urban areas, of increased gang activity, which includes some lesbian gang activity.

I apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.

And I didn’t really mean to yell, “Fire” in the theater.

Oh dear, that’s some serious back-peddling.

I love it when people involved in politics try to spin information in an absurdly poor manner.

I do like the idea of a plague of rampaging lesbian gangs though, sounds like something out of a Russ meyer film.

Y’all can rest easy now that my associates in The Cunnilingus Cartel have “explained” things to Wheeler…

Funny how it’s always our misunderstanding they apologise for, never for what they say. Sheesh, when are we ever going to get it right so these blowhards can sleep at night?

“And I didn’t really mean to yell, “Fire” in the theater.”

And when I yelled “Fire” in the theatre a better choice of words would have been to say that there was indeed a fire, but on the other side of the city. To be more accurate, it was a Burning Man festival.

I apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.

Sincerely,

Rod Wheeler

Such a buffoon ought to be sacked for peddling such blatant misinformation.

[...] when unable to substantiate this steaming pile, O’Reilly apologized and Wheeler sheepishly recanted. This, naturally, will not be broadcast in mass mailings to the army of the helplessly uninformed, [...]
