"It would be dangerous. We’d get mired down inside Iraq in a conflict that’s been raging for generations in the interests of trying to dictate who’s going to govern in Iraq. That is not something that we are prepared to see American forces do. For the US to get involved militarily in determining the outcome of the struggle over whose going to govern in Iraq strikes me as a classic definition of a quagmire." - Dick Cheney, in a 1991 NPR interview.
So this is what our stud of the week, Matt Sanchez, is defending.
The administration/military poised to dismiss him for his sexy past; this is what he's defending.
The administration that knew invading Iraq was stupid, yet did it, based on lies, and more lies.
In the same issue of Marine Times that weighs his impending dismissal by "doing porn when not in a drilling status" (LOL!), Matt notes a review of this week's hit movie, 300, and gets all Rex Reed himself on his blog.
Here's an amusing debate about the merits and barely veiled "message" of the hyper-violent film, which portrays, in Matt's words, the entire Persian army as a bunch of "drag queens."
Okay, it's based on a comic book/graphic novel; not unlike Matt's career?
In true NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) fashion, Matt, aka Rod Majors, considers his struggle as similar to that of the Spartans; overwhelmed by Persian drag queens (we, the porny multiple-pierced liberal left), and forced off a cliff in a noble pursuit.
More like jumping off like a lemming, Mateo. We "lefties" of course, are comparing the Spartans' fate to that of U.S. soldiers being senselessly knocked off by insurgents.
As a Greek, I don't enjoy seeing my history rearranged to suit the whims of politicians and others, but that's been going on for centuries. And some of it's fun; Hercules cartoons, TV shows, erotic art; there's centuries of revisionism, because the stories, no matter how disjointed they become, still entertain.
What's become so prevalent in this era is the de-gayification of the gayest stories in history.
Achilles was gay. Brad Pitt's Troy attempted to de-gay him. sorry. Pretty costumes, great action scenes. But Achilles didn't get all pissed off over Patroclus' death because he was his cousin. Patroclus was his hot little lovah!
Hercules was bisexual. He fucked young guys and had wives. He went crazy and killed his wife. don't expect to find that in any Disney-fied re-interpretation.
And unlike in 300, The Spartans were gay. Okay, not "gay" in the modern sense, but homo-relational, and sexual between older and younger soldiers.
That's a fact Matt and his rightwing cronies, who see 300 as a historic variant on their own "quagmire" of a war; wait, two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan - oh, and Iran, soon enough, just as soon as Chimpoleon gathers up a few more trillion dollars for Halliburton and Bechtel, and forces a few more hundred thousand troops into redeployment, as 250,000 injured vets get horribly sloppy healthcare, and Rethug polits suddenly "care," now that the "leftist media" exposed Walter ReedArmy Medical Facility as deplorable.
You see, maintaining a losing war is patriotic and pro-American, despite the fact that Halliburton, the biggest war profiteer on earth, is moving its headquarters from Houston to Dubai (you know, where Saudi Arabia's emirs and Bush pals had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11; nope, not a thing!)
Y'all recall the preposterous Dubai ports idiocy Cheneyco tried to swill us on.
Meanwhile, back here in SmallPornville, rightwing, er, "Libertarian" prudes are calling me homophobic for posting pics of naked men! Yep, in Bizarro World, dickless geeks who never get laid spew Ayn Randian/Camille Paglia deconstructivist drivel, and think announcing facts about our porn/Marine poster boy is "homophobic."
Hey, bitch; his gay stuff's the best thing about him. I'd call the fucked-in-the-head mental masturbator "Libertarians" faggots, but that would be an insult to wooden sticks.
Can anyone name a Libertarian politician who ever got elected? There must be one somewhere. But mostly, Libertarians are just Republicans who like to smoke pot and remove themselves from reality. Their real party, the GOP, invades privacy and overspends and hates, yet they stay in their billowy cloud world of theory. In theory, their ideas work.
Meanwhile, back in reality -okay, this sexual blog's reality- what about Matt/Rod's hot fucking action?
Is Matt's porn past as juicy as it seems? I'd only seen Idol Country (it's mislabeled on VHS somewhere in my box-o-old-porn. I'll have to dig it up.)
Maybe somebody online is posting actual clips of his sexploits? That'd be hot.
So, I went to EZ-Board's World of Men, because a pal said they had a lot of hot sex clips and pics. I posted a request, along with a link to my now infamous post. I got some rather negative replies, but mostly positive. The worst:
"Tom's blog is a vicious attack on another person, pretty much throwing every object he can lay his hands on..."
Why are facts always "vicious" to conservatives, particularly conservative gays?
Ted Haggart? Tom Foley? Scooter Libby? The FACTS of their lies got out; how is that "vicious?"
I simply assembled what was already coming out last week in other places.
In an audio interview linked here, Fox's Colmes takes Matt to task over his own distortion and omissions in his story.
And (crypto-fascist Libertarian fucktwit Jeffy Protein JizzDumb blogger, take note) Matt says HE WASN'T OUTED; IT WAS ALREADY OUT THERE.
It's not private info when a guy makes dozens of porn tapes. It's not private when he's a well-known and popular hustler in three-four major cities, especially when he has a website to prove it.
It's not private when he then gets a cushy non-combat PR job (after getting a job with a "refridgeration unit" in Brooklyn), and goes on rightwing TV shows complaining about his "abuses" at the hands of a few antiwar activists, and publicizes this miniscule event as if it were the seige of Troy.
It's not private when he then gets an award for this "bravery" at a highly publicized event where even frickin' Dick Cheney spoke, and sociopathic rightwing fistpuppet Ann Coulter called a Democratic presidential candidate a "faggot."
It's not private. Not at all. Blaming a guy who simply put the wacky puzzle pieces together is absurd.
Matt knew this would come out, anticipated it, and is making the most of it. And his rollercoaster ride of disjointed PR is no Spartan loss or victory.
Matt says "porn is too liberal." I'm just going to enjoy that quote for a long time, and eagerly await his line of "conservative porn." Not that I'll view it, considering how much of the GOP, Bushco and the freakass "Libertarianism" is just downright obscene without being sexual.
Okay, here's a Libertarian who makes some sense; from the comments on Marine Times:
A person’s honor and integrity character is what really makes a Marine and so far, Sanchez has yet to exhibit a shred of honor or integrity in an interview or anything he has written. He has based his fledgling writing career on morality and honesty while lying to himself, his political friends, and the would-be readers of his yet to be published book. When he gets caught in a lie or taken to task he continues to lie and cast blame some more. He refuses to accept responsibility for his own actions. He blames the gay community, the liberals, or anyone else who questions him as opposed to facing a mirror and seeing that he is the cause for his problems. There is no way in hell I would want to have served with someone like Cpl. Matthew Sanchez. Not due to his race, creed, national origin, religion, or sexual orientation but because of his arrogance and weakness; the two most dangerous traits a person can have in combat.
He owes the men and women of our armed forces a lot of hell of a lot more respect than what he has exhibited in the past week. He certainly does not represent the military that I proudly served and has not put forth a shred of evidence that we should find him a great American. America is a land of freedom, opportunity, and equal opportunity for all of her citizens. Sanchez has made his belief perfectly clear that only his political party is deserving of that opportunity and be damned the rest. If he were a real man and a true Marine he’d see that he owes an apology to everyone he has blamed for his own misgivings and deceived. Neither the gay blogging community or the Democrats can be blamed for anything that has happened or will to Matthew Sanchez. He is the only one at fault.
Not that it should matter but for the record I am heterosexual by birth, Christian by grace, and politically a registered Libertarian by choice.

So, Matt claims he's no longer gay, yet was allegedly hooking up with guys only weeks ago. Whatever his current sexuality, if he didn't like being a whore or porn performer, fine. Don't blame the entire Democratic Party for Chi Chi LaRue not hiring good fluffers.
In the world outside Matt's, Gay Life is not a porn set. Gay Sexuality is not a monetary transaction. I don't doubt that he probably got his cushy Marine job via a NYC sex hook-up or client in the military.
And still, nobody on that porn board had clips. Sigh. So, I broke down and bought a few cheaper $9.00 DVDs of his porn videos. I look forward to seeing more of Matt's best work. Funny, as I was shopping, the price of one of his DVDs jumped by $20. Smart, guys. (I went to another seller who hadn't been so clever.)
Rightwingers saying that this was his "dark past" or "indiscretion" is predictable. They prefer a trumped up "hero" who uses a Marine uniform as his latest macho drag. And they love their ex-gays, no matter how fraudulent.
But people on a porn board saying that this was his "dark past" or "indiscretion" is not just hypocrisy, it's idiocy.
They post images of fitness models who've done porn, essentially "outing" their varied careers, which, ain't no secret if you just look at a recent issue of Men's Fitnes and LPI's Men. What's the difference, other than the hilarious rightwing ironic comedy?
Well, there's a lot more cocks and butts here, instead of just dicks and assholes.
For plenty more of that on both sides, visit Matt's blog. He's being good about letting detractors post on his blog, which has, expectedly, taken off like wildfire.
And that's what he wanted all along, and hey, good luck to him. He may think he's the Trojan Horse, but perhaps more of a used Trojan.
He's going to be ego-surfing for a long time, and with a PR job, he'll do fine after he gets booted from the Marines he's so heartily defended.
As Matt says, thanks to Wikipedia, "Students from now until the end of time will be able to reference me in their papers."
Yeah, Matt, you're just that important. Totally, like immortal. And it has nothing to do with your amazing cum shots. You look great, though. Really.
But you might not wanna start posing for the statue you think will be built in your honor.
