Just what we needed to brighten things up on an otherwise drab Monday !
Yo, Republican Party – doesn’t calling it“frivolous luxuries which are out of reach of the vast majority of the American People” imply that given the cash, we would all be going to dinners at the local bondage themed nightclub featuring live bedroom antics ?
Some of us, you know, the old married farts, regular working people, and the ones not on Ted Haggard’s Cash for Public Blessings speed dial, just want to eat a steak and a salad and maybe some ice cream if it’s a Saturday, and then fall into bed at home, and go to sleep afterwards. No ropes required.
HuffPo says the kink, er, link webpage is down right now. Oh, dayam.
This is where the Chairman of the Republican National Committee likes to Party, oh, wait, he’s denying it, it was somebody else at the RNC, at Voyeur West Hollywood. Who Knew that lavish nightspot drinking, “highbrow elegance, and a bit of S&M are not mutually exclusive” ?
Dear RNC, “Tone Deafness” is not quite the right phrasing, either. On behalf of the truly pitch impaired singing public, try “Please accept that kinkyness is a GOP Party requirement” and see how it goes with your Family Values appeal.
“The appearance is bad, I’ll give you that,” said Larry Farnsworth, a Republican strategist and former press secretary to House Speaker Dennis Hastert, “But… it’s tough raising money and I don’t think donors want to meet for free waffles and coffee at the Holiday Inn Express. These guys want to be wined and dined, it’s the dirty part of politics.”
The Chain. Fringe Version.
Michael Steele. The GOP Gift That Keeps On Giving a New Image to Republicans. Was this why Palin was in those black leather duds with zippers with Gramps McCain this weekend for the Pima County Fairgrounds Reunion ? http://www.azstarnet.com/news/…
Tuesday Morning Chuckler Update, or How to CYA, RNC “Young Eagle” Style
It gets better. Dave Dayen had a post at Lake du Fire Dogs about who the happy staffer was who charged $1946.25 to the RNC for those “meals” at the bondage niteclub.
Dynamic Marketing. The guy who does CA Repub guber candidate Steve Poizner’s campaign literature and mailings, named Erik Brown. He’s also done work for Chuck Devore.
Here’s a little bio of Erik Brown: http://www.democraticundergrou…
A graduate of the University of California Irvine with a degree in Political Science, Erik has been an active member of The National Honor Society, Young Republicans, Friends of the NRA, Claremont Institute, and the Sheriff’s Advisory Council. Apart from a passion for politics and a driving commitment to advocate on behalf of founding principles, Erik is a sportsman and a mentor to young athletes. As an ice hockey coach for over 12 years, his teams have won acclaim as State, District, and National Champions.
Erik is married to Alison Brown, a graduate of Chapman University and an MBA student at UCI’s Merage School of business. Alison has served as President of the Illuminating Engineers Society of Southern California, a mainstay of her industry. A former director of the Sunday school, Alison and Erik reside in Las Flores, California and are actively involved in the ministries of their local church.
Claremont Institute. Heh. That’s Howard Ahmanson the multi millionaire SoCal banker developer, uber conservative evangelical pushing the Episcopalian Church split, and Prop 8 supporter.
CA 04 Congressman McClintock (who was parked at the Claremont for a short time between terms of office years ago) just endorsed Steve Poizner for governor.
Wonkette has another must see photo of Eric Brown, entranced with somebody’s “sweater puppies”
ROFLMAO the Dynamic Marketing site is gutted and says “Stay Tuned, New Site Coming Soon.” http://www.dmidirect.com/ His facebook page and twitter has also been offlined. Erik Brown wrote that he attended a football game with Michael Steele last October and his facebook, before deleting, had that he was working on another big RNC project. Ya huh. Attaboy, Erik.
Oh, and the Red County Republican blog has been doing the cya story about how this wasn’t really Steele’s or Erik Brown’s fault- it was the female RNC staffer they’ve since fired – See Wonkette’s version, as Politico doesn’t name the staffer.
The Atlantic names the fired staffer: It’s Allison Meyers, Director of the RNC’s Young Eagles program, who allegedly organized the fundraiser at the Hilton last January and then allegedly led the party over to the Voyeur afterwards.
He only paid for it because the Voyeur Niteclub rejected Allison Myer’s RNC credit card ! yeah, sure, lol lol lol –
