Here I am as a “man” on the street in LA talking about gun control in an excerpt from Politics Is A Drag. The concept is by Ester Goldberg and we’re still actively pitching the show to producers to either get us online or get us on TV. The one thing that matters most is the likes and shares. The more we get, the more the gatekeepers take notice. So if ya dig this and would like to see more politics and punchlines from drag queens like Ester, Coco Peru and myself, please share widely. There’s an election coming up so the time is right!

SPOT-ON SPOOF OF TYPICAL BULLSHIT POLITICAL AD

Honest Political Ads - Gil Fulbright for President

Do you know why it’s important for politicians to raise a fortune to even be in the running for president? Because the candidate with the most money is always the frontrunner. Some of the money raised goes to their staff and some of it goes to their wardrobe. But the vast majority goes into buying campaign ads which are carefully crafted by marketing experts to give voters a sense of what strategists have determined is their strongest suit to win. Not their actual policies, just vague buzz words, comforting music and often meaningless slogans which sound good but which translate into little in terms of bread and butter issues. This is why we saw Hillary announce her candidacy with a vague ad featuring tomato farmers and a gay couple to give the idea that she supports average people and maybe even gay people. The GOP ads are just as bad because they have the momentous task of convincing working Americans that trickle down economics will somehow benefit workers, despite the fact that it never has.

I think everyone on both sides of the aisle would agree that the country is in a mess. So please dig a little deeper and hold your candidates’ feet to the fire on the issues and how their proposed polices will shake down into you being able to afford school, medicine, healthcare, get a job, fix crumbling infrastructure, halt climate change, assure veterans’ benefits–or whatever is important to you. The sad thing is that these policies do come out at debates, but most don’t watch. We watch campaign ads between our favorite shows. And the more money a candidate has, the more ads he/she can buy. the more money he/she has gotten from businesses, the less likely that campaign will serve you once elected. They’ll be too busy paying back corporate donors with an agenda which benefits them, not you. This video is an excellent spoof of the typical campaign ad. The odd thing is that now even Trump and Hillary are talking about getting money out of politics–because they’ve already got their bankrolls in place.

DESPITE OBAMACARE REFORMS, DRUG PRICES SKYROCKET

Clearly, Obamacare made insurance more affordable to many. Just pray that you don’t need any of these prohibitively expensive pills or you may not be able to afford what your doctor prescribes. You do know that seniors actually skip days of taking their meds because they can’t afford them.
I wonder if these shocking increases have anything to do with the fact that Obama met Big Pharma at the White House before crafting the ACA in a closed-to-the-press meeting. I wonder what he was assuring them of? That Americans couldn’t go to Canada for cheaper meds? That pharmaceutical companies can continue to gouge consumers? Just as Obama’s TPP makes monopolies of life-saving drugs like HIV meds more likely. Combine that with the fact that from syringes to surgery, Americans pay way more for the exact same medical services than people in other countries are charged for them. Why? Because our government is full of crooks. Until you realize how crooked even the ones you like are, you’re doomed to elect more of the same. Just because they’re not as bad as Republicans. Yet they are pretty damn awful.

ARE THE DEMOCRATIC ELECTIONS RIGGED TO FAVOR HILLARY?

All the Demcratic candidates want more debates–except Hillary, who has doesn’t want to discuss her non-positions. Yet our “left-leaning” news channel MSNBC would rather focus on the GOP train wreck debates. Maddow was all over CNN criticizing their GOP debate style. Have yo heard her critiquing the DNC’s debates?
From the TYT clip below: “The problem with this candidacy of Hillary Clinton is that it used to be the Republicans were the party of Wall Street and big business and the military-industrila complex. Now the Democrats go to Wall Street with their hand out, too, and now that’s why we have this crony capitalism and this economy that works for only the 1%.”
You folks don’t like it when I say that Hillary is GOP lite, but she is, except on social issues. She’s been bought by monied interests and now she can buy the election, including rigged debates which prevent less middle-of-the-road messages from getting out there thanks to the DNC. I honestly wish Bernie would run as an Independent so that he isn’t beholden to the taint of the Democrats. Obama took the Democrats away from their core principles, Hillary would cement the death of the Democrats as much different from the GOP.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE IDIOTIC GOP DEBATE

Even loonier than the main event, was coverage of how the Republican candidates spent their day before their debate.

Rand Paul went to a shooting range earlier in the day. His target? Copies of our tax code. I’d also like to change the tax code too, but shooting at it is a sad “Hey NRA, throw some campaign cash my way” message. I think we can change the tax code without guns.

Jeb Bush spoke somewhere and displayed a little machismo as me made a punching motion to try and debunk Trump’s barbs that he’s a low energy wimp. He also went hiking and took a photo op with his half-hispanic son. I wonder what message that was meant to send–I’m less racist towards immigrants than the rest of these clowns I’ll share a stage with later tonight? I fucked a hispanic, so let that hopefully trick undocumented hispanics and those who support them into thinking that I’m more partial to their rights so that I can get their votes and THEN fuck them?

Ben Carson had perhaps the most bizarre day of all by simply being black. Yes, hardly any blacks vote Republican and not many Republicans would seem eager to vote for any person of color. Yet African-American candidate Carson is somehow polling second to Trump. Has the GOP completely lost they minds? I’d be thrilled if either of them won as their party’s nominee. Since neither have any political experience, any nominee the Democrats run would have more of a chance. Even a progressive one like Bernie Sanders who some claim cannot win. Against Trump or Carson he sure could.

That was only the opening act. Here are some insane snippets of the actual debate I’m catching now.

Rubio listed “a gangster in Moscow” and several other world leaders who he perceives as threats. How he thinks of this as a winning strategy when most Americans are supposed to be weary of war, I’ll never know. Do we want to invent threats from all over the world or focus on how poorly US citizens are doing financially and take care of business like crumbling infrastructure and overpriced higher education and healthcare here at home?

Rand Paul surprised me by taking a less hawkish stance and said that the US doesn’t need military bases all over the world to keep us safe. A surprisingly enlightened take on foreign policy than anyone else on that stage. However, Paul wants fewer military operations because he wants the government to be smaller in every way, including ending social services from Social Security to veteran’s benefits. Not exactly a tea partier, but he’s one of those who essentially ran for office to shrink the government’s scope.

Jeb Bush told a flat out lie in saying that his brother George kept us safe. Perhaps there were no major attacks after 9/11, but 9/11 happened during Bush’s presidency. He and Condo-loser Rice ignored multiple warnings that terrorists would use planes to attack us months before 9/11.

Carly Fiorino spoke passionately against abortion, referring to that recent video of an infant with it’s heart still beating while Planned Parenthood employees discussed how they had to keep this fully formed aborted child’s heart beating so they could use the remnants of it’s dying body to save others. I realize that abortion is a polarizing issue. But today I renewed my NY State ID and was asked to check a box saying I’d be an organ donor as I lay dying. Is this immoral? It’s widely accepted. What’s so wrong with wanting to use expiring bodies to help others live or for research so that perhaps many others can live? The mom didn’t want the kid and that’s her right. It isn’t like Planned Parenthood is ambushing pregnant women and stealing their babies.

Carly scored points by saying that she’d buried her child lost to drug addiction. And went on to denounce marijuana. Except for one thing: you don’t die from marijuana addictions any more than you do cigarette addictions. Aren’t cigarettes legal? And unless I’m mistaken, it was disproved years ago that marijuana is a “gateway drug” to harder substances which can kill you.

One of CNN’s questions was if Obama should cancel a state dinner with China. I don’t see the connection between canceling state dinners and what concerns most Americans–getting back on track economically. I realize that our president is in charge of foreign policy and there may be differences in GOP’s approach to China and Obama’s approach, just as there are differences between the most Republicans and Obama on his diplomatic approach to Iran. But if canceling dinners seems like a point worth discussing to CNN, thanks for the great question. John Kasich, at least, seemed to speak out on behalf of diplomacy. A signal that Kasich is perhaps less of a hawk. But less of a hawk towards Iran than the average GOP candidate isn’t anything to get excited over–it’s Hillary Clinton.

Mike Huckleberry was asked in the Spin Room is he planned to make Kentucky clerk Kim Davis a key part of his platform. He spouted something about the “separation of powers” in attempt to court dumb evangelicals who would rather go unemployed and broke from healthcare costs than permit gays to marry. Excuse me, dunce. I think separation of church and state is as much of a core principle of our founding fathers.

Republicans hate to discuss climate change. With California burning up during a years-long drought, that might be an important domestic issue to bring up. It wasn’t. So the GOP are deny science in order to keep from acknowledging man-made climate change. If they acknowledged it, they’d have to try and find solutions. And that would mean slapping restrictions on industries which emit greenhouse gases and make less campaign dollars.

Scott Walker actually had the nerve to suggest that he would be the candidate to fight special interests. He’s the candidate that the Koch brothers bankrolled, fer chrissakes! Here’s a phone call by a prankster posing as a Koch brothers where Walker’s ass-kissing to even a comedian posing as a Koch is proven. What a Koch-sucker!

And Trump is still resonating with his claims that he won’t take donations which will make him beholden to corporate donors who represent the 1%. Um, that’s because he is the 1% and his own corporate donor. So is he going to represent the 99% of working Americans? No way, never!

CLINTON ADMITS SHE’S A CENTRIST, WHICH IS HOW OBAMA FAILED

I often say that Hillary is Republican lite and people get angry. Here’s proof. She’s better on social issues than any GOP candidate, but not a progressive. She’s stealing progressive ideas from Sanders and Warren when they resonate with voters, as if she’s ever going to reform Wall Street when banks are her top donors.

Here she is on video admitting that she’s in the middle. We need a drastically different direction which is progressive. Especially after the radical Tea Party “forced” Obama towards the middle in order to get anything through Congress. No centrist will provide much change, much less the fundamental changes we desperately need. Just as Obama didn’t deliver on hope and change. All the money still flowed to the 1% under two terms of Bush and two terms of Obama. A vote for Clinton will assure more of the same. And here she is admitting it! She’s only borrowing liberal ideas to trick us into electing her so that she can then revert to doing the bidding of who has paid for her campaign. Obama’s doing it right now granting Shell drilling rights in the Arctic while pretending to be Mr. Climate Change Fixer and pushing the TPP trade deal which was written by corporate lobbyists to outsource jobs as Clinton’s husband’s NAFTA trade deal destroyed 1 million manufacturing jobs. Clinton has called the TPP “the gold standard” of trade deals.

Clinton is no candidate of working people. Centrist means closer to a Republican than a proud Democrat should be and Biden is just Hillary with a penis and without an email scandal. If you dislike Republicans, beware of centrist Democrats like Clinton and Biden.

 

@MATTHEWKASTEN READ ME GOOD & FIERCE!

As I was getting ready to go out tonight, I remembered a funny read by Boybar impresario Matthew Kasten. I’m a notorious slob and never had the grooming of most Boybar queens. I showed up somewhere and Matthew  said that I could have at least cleaned my shoes. “But they’re lucite so they’re see-through,” I explained. He told me that the lucite may be see-through but that dirt isn’t. Giggles.

JIMMY FALLON’S TRUMP SKIT WAS FUNNY, BUT HILLARY’S CAMPAIGN IS THE REAL JOKE

Donald Trump's Phone Call with Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump calls Hillary Clinton to interview her before her "Tonight Show" appearance.

Posted by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Some funny lines in here. And I like that Jimmy included Trump’s weird under eye highlights for his impersonation. But I’m sorry, the real joke is that Hillary is saying that she’s going to get her message across by going on a listening tour. Hogwash! She’s been pushing that crap because it worked when she won as NY Senator and because she wants to claim that she’s still formulating her platform with input from voters. She’s been running for decades and she should have a fully fleshed out platform. She’s admitting that she’s wetting her finger and seeing which way the wind blows. Not a leader.

BIANCA JAGGER ON OBAMA’S “MORTAL SIN”: DRILLING IN THE ARCTIC

While MSNBC discusses Trump and even the GOP candidates who aren’t polling above 5%, here’s what your current Democratic president is up to. MSNBC doesn’t like to talk about this too much, even though addressing climate change is one of Obama’s own stated goals for his second terms. Achieve his goals? He can’t even pretend that his goals make sense with this one.

Bianca Jagger: “President Obama must know that it is impossible to protect the Arctic while allowing Shell to drill for oil 70 miles off the coast of Alaska. He cannot have it both ways. His policies and proclamations are irreconcilable.”

DO ANTI-PERSPIRANTS CAUSE ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE?

Someone recently told me that the aluminum in antiperspirants can lead to Alzheimer’s disease. I mentioned it to a few other people I knew and they acted as if it was common knowledge. They all said they use deodorants, not antiperspirants which contain aluminum for this reason.

I googled a bit but it’s hard to know who to trust. Several articles ask if this connection is a problem, but then went on to dismiss this as a nontroversy from the patchouli set. The article I linked here has lost me with it’s talk of neurons, cortex and hippocampus, but it concludes that the studies dismissing the link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s were conducted by the aluminum industry itself. After concluding that the jury is still out on this but that using deodorant is safer than antiperspirant because of aluminum content, The People’s Pharmacy article then links a safe deodorant which it conveniently sells. So it’s hard to know who to trust. But it’s clearly established that our government will allow OK unsafe products if they are paid enough. Look at all the drug recalls, the many commercials for drugs which have “suicidal thoughts” as one of side effects and the fight (which Monsanto won) to prevent food labels from including whether or not GMOs are contained. I don’t necessarily think all GMOs are unhealthy. But if they were beneficial to us or simply not harmful, why would their manufacturers desperately seek to keep ingredients off of labels?

Any thoughts? I don’t have any answers on this but am sure you will have an opinion, l so please chime in. I do use antiperspirants and they probably contain aluminum. I certainly don’t want to get Alzheimer’s and would rather smell a little worse, if that’s even possible, than not know where I am. By the way, who are you, how did you get into my home, why are you wearing that Susan Boyle costume and why have you even contacted me about this audition? I’ve told you many times that I’m way too young to play Jon Benet Ramsey.

BUSHWIG 2015–PARTY IN BROOKLYN! TODAY’S THE LAST BASH!

I had a blast performing at Bushwig yesterday! They had originally booked me on Sunday but I screwed up my schedule and forgot that I am performing in Roanoke today. So they were kind enough to switch me and I literally flew off the stage and ran to a waiting car service to get to VA on the last flight yesterday. Since I left my apartment in drag and don’t normally pack for a 2 day trip to do a show in NYC, I almost forgot to pack my sneakers. Can you imagine the hilarity and tragedy if I’d raced out to Bushwig, performed, scrubbed off the drag and then realized that I only had pumps to wear with “mens’ clothes” to the airport! Looking like the oldest and fattest member of Kazaky! I know how to command respect in international airports.

The vibe of Bushwig was electrifying with a wild spirit which even a little rain couldn’t dampen. These gals had their festival, now in it’s 4th year, better organized than Wigstock in it’s 10th year. Great sound and stage, revelers in and out of drag and one with wig and heels and nothing else. Lady Simon, a Brooklyn favorite, was doing a performance art piece consisting of tying herself to a tree near the entrance. Vegan snack bars, a Sober Sissies space, singers performing interesting original music and unlike most gay events–no Britney or Rihanna. Amen to that!

I’ve heard some bitching about the cover charge. And I get it–no one is rich these days, especially the artsy types who would appreciate Bushwig the most. I can’t justify paying over $300 to see the Book Of Mormon myself, even though I hear it’s sick, twisted and has revolutionized Broadway. So if you can’t, you can’t. But remember that expression you’ve got to PAY THE PIPER? Here’s the definition of it: “bear the consequences of an action or activity that one has enjoyed. As in “we will have to pay the piper, and the price is apt to be a high one”. The Bushwig queens are trying to bring something funky and unique to a stale and corporate NYC. It’s blossomed into a 3 day event because it is a scream. Sound systems, stages, graphics, websites and wigs don’t create themselves. I can tell you for a fact that Matty Horrorchata’s dress must have cost literally thousands…of pennies. KIDDING! (Actually, it was a mini-muumuu which she claimed was inspired by me. Oink!) So if you like refreshingly kooky drag and don’t support the events which feature it, yet you complain about how NYC has lost it, maybe it’s you who’s lost it. There’s nothing like actually connecting with a bunch of freaks at an outdoor festival. That’s all Wigstock was. I know it’s hard to pry yourselves away from your devices and you can wait and see the pics and videos online. But today’s the last day–go pack the place, cheer them on and Occupy All Freaks!
