Phil Robertston VS GLAAD Water Cooler Primer
You walk in the door today and you encounter and impassioned office mate standing on his desk next to a burn barrel with a TV Guide in in his hand while preaching about:
1) the unlawful persecution of Phil Robertson, AKA the Duck Dynasty guy..
2) the Duck Dynasty guy, AKA Phil Robertson, being a gay basher.
Phil Robertson, star of the world famous reality TV show Duck Dynasty, said in the most recent edition of GQ Magazine that, "It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man's anus, that's just me."
Okay. Freedom of speech and that's how you feel and what an excellent stopping point.. huh? Oh wait.. there's more.
"I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."
By now his handlers should have been like, "Okay! Thanks GQ, thanks Phil, this interview is over and off we go." Instead..
"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there," is the way Phil responded when asked what is sinful. He elaborated, "bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
GLAAD retorted and Sarah Palin said something and Duck's network, A&E, suspended him from the show indefinitely. At the risk of drawing the ire from both sides, it could be suggested that we're in the center of a well-coordinated, headline grabbing fix by the network and the show's cast. There are no secret NSA tapes or multi-national deals for asylum in Brazil to prove this. In fact, other than a DD marathon tonight, there's no evidence of anything. Regardless, the ancient formula says there is no reality in reality TV, and too much money is in play to suggest Phil or the show is going anywhere but up.
