A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Heather Wilson; She’s no flip-flopper, she’s a shape shifter

Native American lore tells of entities who can change their appearance in order to alter their true identities. "Shape shifters" draw their power from deceit and illusion. Such a description seems apropos for quite a few politicians of late - Representatives Mark Foley, Tom Delay, Denny Hastert & Bob Ney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice and even King George Bush himself.

New Mexico Republican Congresswoman Heather Wilson is currently engaged in the fight of her political life. The Air Force Academy graduate, known for her strong family values has found her support dwindling in her constituency because of her political alignment with the president whose approval ratings are the lowest of all presidents in US History.

Of course, when the ratings need to be boosted, the Rovian run Bush Administration relies on Fear and Smear - you know, resurrect the 'evil doer' skit or blame Clinton blah blah blah.

It seems her electorate is just as dissatisfied as the rest of the country is with the lies the Bush Administrated foisted upon the American public in order to wage war on Iraq.

While Representative Wilson initially supported the Iraq attack, she now claims that, in closed session, she was the only one to question the intelligence gathered regarding Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons arsenal. **cough-bullshit-cough**

Unfortunately, for the Congresswoman - who inadvertently referred to herself as a ‘congressman’ in her debate with Democratic candidate Patricia Madrid (a Freudean slip perhaps? Maybe not, just another shape shift) cannot deny the record where she was quoted on the record as affirming that the intelligence collected at the time – and being spoon-fed to her by the Bush Administration – was in fact correct. So the ad recently released by Wilson's opponent aptly raises the question; is Heather Wilson a liar or not? I say she is a shape shifter.

Now, Congressman Wilson is scrambling to donate funds that she received from the recently resigning Florida Representative, Mark Foley to charity. Foley has allegedly checked into an alcohol treatment program ostensibly to figure out why this co-chairman of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus he prefers beardless youths as sexual partners - ABC recently exposed the Congressman's e-mail attempts to stick his pickle in a page. Uhoh - another shape shifter!

Not good from a man who assiduously promoted himself as a protector of the youth from pedophiles - a man who helped enact legislation which curiously, may one day be used to convict him for his lacivious acts of enticing young boys to get freaky with him. Shape Shifter time!

So, once again, Heather Wilson announces she is dissociating herself from yet another unscrupulous Republican Politician- Just like she did with Bob Ney, and Tom Delay (thanks Nameless cynic). She is donating the proceeds that she received from those moral turds to charity. Funny how she gladly takes the money and then quickly tosses the gifts away - only after the scandal arises. She doesn't seem to have very good insight when it comes to taking money from dirty Republicans - situational ethics of the shape-shifter.

How ironic that Congressman Wilson and her party who were so proud of pointing fingers at Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and later, John Kerry for being ‘flip-floppers’ is now in a position where she must waffle regarding her precarious position of supporting an administration that lied to the American Public. Now she must dissociate herself from her cronies such as the recently exposed pedophile Congressman from Florida.

She’s no flip-flopper. Fortunately, for the voters in her constituency, Congressman Wilson’s remarks and associations can be tracked. Utilizing a quote from a book that Republicans love to reference, “as you judge, so shall you be judged” (Matthew 7:2) here’s to you Heather Wilson, you shape shifter. You cannot escape your voting record, your public comments and your associations.

There is an old Spanish adage that says, “Dime con quien andas y te digo quien eres” which translates to mean, “Tell me who you walk with and I’ll tell you who you are.” Congressman Wilson, you stand with liars, bigots, and sexual predators. My father called you “Hater Wilson.” I now understand why.

I eagerly await your defeat and ouster from office along with the many other scoundrels of your ilk come November when the American Public registers just how fed-up we are with your hypocritical claim to the moral high road which rings hollow when compared to the lies and deception that your Shape-Shifting party of Fear and Smear has become.

I lectured about the Two Spirit role among Native Americans today. Sounds like in addition to the shape-shifter she has also adopted that part of Native American culture. You are so fortunate to have such a culturally open congress-person there in New Mexico.

May the election give her the results s/he deserves.
