I Guess He Rubbed Him the *Right* Way

From Miami New Times:

The male escort hired by anti-gay activist George Alan Rekers has told Miami New Times the Baptist minister is a homosexual who paid him to provide body rubs once a day in the nude, during their ten-day vacation in Europe.

Rekers allegedly named his favorite maneuver the “long stroke” — a complicated caress “across his penis, thigh… and his anus over the butt cheeks,” as the escort puts it. “Rekers liked to be rubbed down there,” he says.

Scandalapalooza!

With the recent focus on Mark Sanford and John Ensign (before they killed Michael Jackson to get reporters off their backs), the spotlight is once again upon past scandals of those in the party of family values. I thought we would take a stroll down memory lane…

Branded

Oscar Madison: Now kindly remove that spaghetti from my poker table.

Oscar Madison: The hell’s so funny?
Felix Ungar: It’s not spaghetti, it’s linguini.
[Oscar picks up the linguini and hurls it against the kitchen wall]
Oscar Madison: Now it’s garbage.The Odd Couple, 1968

One of the funniest movies ever! And speaking of garbage….
From The Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

The Republican brand is in the garbage

There’s only one thing worse than being a member of Congress these days – being a Republican member of Congress.

Party Animals

From The Hill:

The Republican Party is making a concerted effort to get real after Tuesday’s crushing special-election loss in Mississippi, but the challenge will be agreeing on how to move forward with a new agenda.

The GOP is in a state of upheaval after Democrat Travis Childers’s stunning 54-46 runoff win over Republican Greg Davis in a very conservative district, and it immediately stopped trying to mask that fact after Tuesday’s result was clear.

But despite the stiff dose of reality — and House GOP Leader John Boehner’s (Ohio) Tuesday suggestion that sizable changes could be on the way at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) — little changed immediately Wednesday as Republicans moved past what they hope will be their last competitive special election before November.

…snip…

[NRCC Chairman Tom Cole (Okla.)] said the GOP’s recent special-election problems have more to do with a deficiency in the party’s message and a loss of confidence in its ability to deliver.

Ummmm, I think that people got the party’s message loud and clear from these guys….
