Video: In FOF's future, every president will be anti-famous for

by Jeremy Hooper

For us, anti-Fame would look/sound like this:

(Songwriter's note: unlike it's counterpart, which was sung by dancing students on top of cars in midtown Manhattan, this version should be whispered into a pencil in an obscure janitor's closet somewhere in Queens)

Baby don't look at me
And don't tell me what you see
You have seen the best of me already
Give me time I'll make you forget even that

I got less in me
And you can't set it free
I can't catch the moon in my hands (it's too heavy)
You don't know who I am, right?

Forget my name

I'm gonna live only my human life expectancy
I'm not gonna learn how to fly

I feel it falling apart
People will see me and laugh

I'm gonna make it to hell
Darken up the sky like ash

I'm gonna be dead forever
Baby forget my name

Don't Remember
Please don't Remember
I'm serious
Don't Remember
Pretend I'm Not Here
Don't Remember
I see you Remembering -- please quit
Don't Remember

For Focus on the Family, however, anti-fame looks and sounds like this

Wow, FOF: You're not only slighting a President with a steady 65% approval rating, but also Barry Manilow, Brett Favre, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson? We knew you were "pro-family" -- but do you have to be anti-"Copa Cabana" as well? That's way harsh!

But you of course remember what Warhol* said: In the future, every anti-gay group will opportunistically try to make our president sound "anti-famous" so as to extend their own fifteen minutes in the discriminatory. So who's surprised by any of this, really?

*John Warhol, our upstairs neighbor. Not Andy.

Your thoughts

HAAAA!!! Gathering Storm - meet Whispering Nebula!

Somebody give these people more hard drive space and TV time! We need more of this stuff!

Brett Favre, really? Barry Manilow? Huh? This is yet another example of the baseless, illogical arguments and desperate grasping at straws the-peeing-in-their-pants-at-the-thought-of-equality side resorts to support their position. Just pathetic. This is the same guy who asked his followers to pray for rain during Obama's acceptance speech in Denver last year.

Four months. That's the entire time Barack Obama has been President of the United States.

This asshole thinks everything will happen instantly like his false God is capable of miracles.

Poor Stuart. (I can't even write that without thinking about that MADTV skit). He's still not over the fact that the repub's lost the election?? Talk about a grudge. Oh well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised...look at his role model: a vengeful, hateful god. Stuart! No fudgsicles!

Whoa...that Stewart Shepherd is like a horrible accident happened genetically fusing Don Knotts and Glenn Beck together.

How utterly ridiculous. What gripe does FOTF have with Obama? I guess he reversed the gag rule, but that's it.

Other than that, he hasn't really done anything against their particular platform of interests unless they are the simple rethugs they claim not to be.

I'm still laughing at the Barry Manilow reference. Can anybody name even one scandel associated with him? It's hard to think of a less controversial celebrity.
