Lord knows I’m not a racist. There is not a bone in my body that would allow discrimination against a fellow man (or woman). Yet, disturbingly, there are a few folks in my Grand GOP who are starting to inch toward the old days of those ancient giant legends like Jesse Helms and Mike Wallace ... I mean George Wallace, may he rest in peace. For you little twinks not understanding any of this, grab your phones and Wikipedia “Governor George Wallace” to understand my brilliant humor. Racism is an American tradition!

It is a royal pain in the boom-boom to have to carry Christ’s cross around every day, being a slave to salvation and carrying the message of Christianity to the world. Yet I’m up to it, and being Kansas City’s most recognized Christian, I need to tell you heathens about a few changes in store for 2009.

First, Christ is the King, Elizabeth is the Queen, and I’m in the Lady in Waiting. The old bag popped in for a week-long visit at my Loch Lloyd manse after the New Year with her servants, horses and disease-ravaged dogs. That’s what we do, we Royals. We pop in on one another unannounced when we get bored. And she HATES the American flavor of Poly-Grip, I tell you. I was so happy when her carriage took her off to KCI. Due to the bad economy, she’s flying first-class, but with Southwest. Don’t ask.

Now that the holy season celebrating Christ’s Birth has ended, I have some sad news to tell you. National Log Cabin Republican President Patrick Sammon is quitting. Yes, the country is in ruin after an eight-year run of Georgie, our GOP Convention totally shunned Patrick and his cute little band of conservative gays, but that’s not stopping them from protesting the Demoncrat Inauguration. Republican Gays around the country will be wearing crowns made out of thorns to protest the abuse gay Republicans have to endure on a daily basis from the bourgeois gay liberals.

And the day after Barack Obama orders his first cup of coffee as president, sweet little Patrick is going to quit his job and go back to filming documentaries or whatever ex-GOP gays do. I’ll miss his cute smile, his self-effacing demeanor, and most of all, I’ll miss his seething self-loathing.

Oops! Almost forgot. There’s a meeting of the ex-gay organization Exodus International coming up with Obama’s new best friend, televangelist Rick Warren -- the guy who’s giving the Inaugural prayer for our new president. I am tickled pink! To think that Obama, like Bill Clinton, sucked up to the gays to get himself elected ... and then coats them with poo-poo! It’s heaven! I’m almost happy John McCain lost ... almost.

“I wish I could work out, too, but I just don’t have the motivation!”

Give me a dollar for every time I’ve heard that and I’d be in Cabo San Lucas with an umbrella drink right now. Let’s identify a few of your motivations to get you on the right path. They are there … you just need to realize them so you can make it a great 2022.

How about getting healthy so you can be at that Christmas celebration in 30 years with all the family gathered around and exchanging presents? There will be nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, children and maybe some grandchildren, all enjoying the sounds and sights of the season. That would be amazing!

How about being healthy so you can watch the first man land on Mars in 2030? You hear all the talk about preparing for a mission to Mars, but it will be a long time in coming. Just think if you were alive and well to see it happen!
