The best part of this comical ABC “Money Trail” clip about Republican politicians partying with lobbyists during The Hurricane comes early on, when the Republican pol covers his face in a feathery pink boa soaked in the goos and sludges of venereal disease. And all because of a wee wittle camera. [YouTube]

  1. Why wasn’t Wonkette dancing to “Hookers and Blow” and sucking up pink martinis while wrapped in pink boas?

    I had to laff when Mr ABC News expressed mock disbelief that the lobbyists and back room guys failed to follow McCrankey’s orders to cease partying while lazy low class Southern people were being entertained by Hurricane Carter.

    You mean McCrankey is a mere figurehead, unlike W? Quelle surprise!
    (And by the way, where exactly are Cheney and Rove right now? I’d like to know.)

  2. Frankly, I’m far less concerned about a bunch of fat lobbyists entertainly blowhard congressmen with Hookers and Blow, much less hookers and blow.

    At the end of the day, they don’t want to see their children and homes end up in a pile of nuclear ashes.

    It’s the lunatic evangelicals who don’t seem to mind having the President of the PTA become President of the USA because she bakes good cookies and wants to teach creationism.

  3. Hand Release for Storm Relief 2008 GOP Convention, MSP-style!

    That’s how they roll, hangin’ out with pink-wigged 6’6″ tall drag queen barmaids at the local equivalent of La Cage, prayin’ to their fundie god that their wifey with 6 kids back home won’t see them on the tube, when they said that they would be going to Monday bible study at the megachurch du jour…

  4. The pink powdered wigs were a perfect prop… They just needed to get one of them to actually say “Let them eat cake!”

    Who would have thought, though, that they’d be so brazenly open about their reason for coming to the convention as to hire a band called hookers and blow… I guess it could have been worse. It could have been “Teenage Boys and Meth”.

  5. [re=78391]Oscar Folsom Cleveland[/re]: Yeah, not that Bush has one foot in the toilet and the other on a banana peel, the MSM decide the coast is clear and it’s OK to act tough, like they’re intrepid journalists or something. Ho brother.

  6. The table of gentlemen. Seen it, but there is something about the camera angle that is so “Sammy the Bull”. Just saying. I hope Brian Ross finds a nice safe house before he gets, you know, scaled back.

  7. More proof that these particular people couldn’t give one genuine shit about what their partly leaders or their platform expects of’s all about the lobbys and the parties, always has been. Meanwhile, while these people are having a McSame solstice orgie, Michele Bachmann is trying to defend Sarah Failin’ in Larry King.

  8. At least they don’t have the camera-wielding person arrested… Like what happened at a certain other convention at a certain other place a certain number of days ago. Cough.

  9. “everybody goes through hard times…”
    GAWD REPUBLICANS SUCK!! No snark here, I hope they go down in flames. After all the crap they put this country through over the last 8 years, they have bottomless nerve even showing their faces in public.
