The Daily Show Welcomes the RNC to the Twin Cities

Nice job, Stewie!! I have to run on down there this coming weekend to look for this billboard…

Crooks and Liars is mis-reporting that the sign is hanging over I-94. The original source states that it’s on I-494 outside of MSP.

Egads…that is funnier than Hell…

Oh, and by the way… Tonights video selection (click the Fly, Silly) was deliberate!!

Mistress vs. Mister: Larry Craig’s “Snack on the Side”

He’s an I.T. Geek and he’s everybody’s favorite local bear. Let us all get to know David Phillips, one of many we’ll be getting to knowDavid Phillips who have allegedly had sex with Larry Craig. In this Wonkette exclusive, Phillips recalls a memory of years gone by at a gay bar in Washington DC where he was taken to Craig’s home and where they broke one of the Laws of Leviticus in a private residence’s guest room.

As we tiptoed from the back door to the stairs to the upper floor, as if somebody else was home, he turned to grope my crotch and brush my face with his hand.” The house’s decor led Phillips to believe that this was a married man: “The bric-a-brac with family pictures didn’t scream ‘old queen’ to me; it announced a woman’s influence. Still, we made our way upstairs.

Bric-a-brac indeed. Phillips continues with:

I let my eyes wander and saw on a table a small envelope, like one from a gift or a floral arrangement, with ‘Suzanne Craig’ neatly written on it. This memory,” Phillips insists, “I noted about three hours after hearing Craig’s voice again, the night before I saw a current picture of him and a good day before I heard of his wife in the news. ‘That’s who’s going to fuck me up if she finds out,’ I thought. As he reached for the door, he took a $20 bill from his wallet, shoved in my front pocket, adding ‘Remember, I can buy and sell your ass ten thousand times over. You were never here. Don’t try to come back here. You don’t know me.

This sounds like the familiar Larry Craig we all know and love. Shoving his personal authority on someone else and then trying to intimidate them into something he wants or needs.

Recall the police officer’s story in the MSP Intl Airport when after the arrest, Larry Craig:

At one point, police reports said, Craig handed the arresting officer a business card that identified him as a U.S. senator and said, “What do you think about that?”

We’ll see more and more of these gay men coming forward and telling their story for four reasons:

  • a.) it’s open hunting season for hypocritical Republican homophobes
  • b.) being gay and out of the proverbial closet isn’t a big deal anymore
  • c.) Craig’s homosexual lifestyle spans decades of closeted self-hatred and
  • d.) finding “celebrity” status by admitting you’ve literally fucked a Republican is worth cash.

Stay tuned everybody… There’ll be a coffee-table book published in a few years of the collected photographed works entitled: “All of Larry Craig’s Men“.

UPDATE: Howie Klein (Down With Tyranny) joins “Team Lucas” at Crooks and Liars with a video of alleged gayGiuliani In Drag Republicans in a photo collage put to music in a song called “Until the Boys” by Until December. It’s a snappy little tune – but it’s horribly disappointing they didn’t think to include Rudy Giuliani’s picture in drag. Brave New Films suggests the RNC include the tune in next year’s GOP National Convention in 2008. I have to disagree: Let’s face it – you can’t have a gay party of hot and hunky men without a drag queen somewhere within in the middle of it all acting as the emcee.

Howie also notes that the NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) plans to meat gather at Sea Island, GA to perform oral sex on big money sugar-daddies because they’re so broke entering into the 2008 election cycle. The horror of this story is that the NRSC has told Larry Craig he isn’t invited to the suck-fest. Craig, burning up his election money on legal fees for his misadventures in the Twin Cities now has problems securing a legal team to file lawsuits against anybody like David Phillips or Wonkette for discussing this story.

FruitFlyUPDATE II: Zach over at MNPublius spotted a note on Examiner dot com (Minneapolis/St Paul) that Larry Craig is now using Denver Intl Airport to catch his connecting flights back to Idaho. We’re all so disappointed about this information. I mean, we’ve already sunk the money into re-installing new walls in the restroom!! What a waste of Minnesota tax-payer money…

UPDATE III: The Young Turks have now discussed this topic  as to keep the story with some air and their video is up on YoTube which you can see by clicking here.

The “Mile High City” Gets the Dems

Denver?! The DNC will hold their 2008 Presidential convention in Denver?! You have got to be kidding me! Of four cities on the short list (Denver, Minneapolis, New Orleans and New York), Denver would have been the worst pick.

The GOP was stupid to announce their city of choice (Minneapolis/St Paul) before the election. Their arrogance dictated that DFL’ers in Minnesota wouldn’t show up to vote and the opposite was true. So, they’re now stuck with their convention deep in the heart of “Blue Territory”. Aside from that, it took the Twin Cities out of the equation for the DNC. That left two cities that have been patently ignored by Bush Co and the GOP…and then there’s Denver.

Of any metropolitan city in the United States, it is New Orleans that has suffered the most. I know there are New Yorkers out there who would disagree with me, and their right to their opinion. But, there are no New Yorkers who can say that their city has been completely dessimated, ignored and are still living in FEMA trailers a year and a half later!Denver

But Denver?!

Colorado is a marquee states for Democrats, who have, in the past two years, gobbled up the governor’s mansion, control of the state legislature, and two congressional seats.

And Colorado also re-elected Marilyn Musgrave, one of the most ferocious homophobes in the US House of Representatives. It was just last September where Musgrave said that “Gay Marriage” was the most important issue facing America today.

New York WTCThe DNC would have benefited much better by going to New York, where the Bush Administration cut funds because they had no “monuments worth protecting”. To ignore New York’s political potential is nothing short of stupid. Granted that New York a “Blue State”, that New York would be difficult for the Dems to get around from venue to venue, I wholeheartedly agree! But Denver?!

New Orleans would have been the best pick, in my humbleClaiborne Street opinion. New Orleans could have benefited from the boost. And seeing Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton and the entire face of the Democratic Party step and point out that they haven’t forgotten those Americans would have been spectacular.

And so they’re going to Denver?!

New Orleans doesn’t need to be ignored anymore than they have already. And New York would have been a better pick than Denver.
