  • HER LOSS: LANDRIEU DEFINITELY NOT AT BRITNEY CONCERT: The Huffington Post has run with this “gossip blog”‘s reported confirmed life-defining economy-saving news report about Eric Cantor going to see old Britney Spears sing last night, and they have gotten confirmation from Sen. Landrieu’s office that she was not, as it happens, there with Eric Cantor, as his office (and other parts of the Republican Apparatus, dare we mention) told us earlier today. [HuffPo]

It does say “gossip” right at the top of your website. I’m just sayin.

Uncle Glenny March 25, 2009 at 6:02 pm

She was turned away for trying to sneak in TelEprOmPteRs!!!11!!

Maybe Landrieu was on stage performing–they’re both blonde & Brit Brit is about the oldest looking 20-something not addicted to crack & hooking I’ve ever seen.

[re=273404]Biden Time[/re]: Ha ha I know, wtf is with that.

[re=273408]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: I know–she’s only a couple years older than me, maybe not even THAT much, and whenever I see close-ups of her, I get scared for myself.

Brendan M. March 25, 2009 at 6:14 pm

Oh, Eric Cantor, what a tangled web we weave…

War Eagle March 25, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Hmmmn, Cantor pays hookers to dress up like Mary Landrieu?

Custerwolf March 25, 2009 at 6:20 pm

[re=273411]Colander[/re]: I didn’t realize when Britney said, “I feel like a fresh, new sexy woman” – she meant for lunch.

“One GOP staffer said he went at the request of a fundraiser.”

And if a fundraiser asked you to jump off a building . . .?

[re=273423]War Eagle[/re]: Wrong Louisiana Senator. Cantor pays hookers to dress up like David Vitter.

[re=273408]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: [re=273411]Colander[/re]: Damn, you girls have high standards. I saw the video and she looked pretty high, starved and fantastic to me. Lindsay Lohan’s kid sister – that’s another story.

I was hoping to find out Landrieu was at the concert though, so then I would at least have something on which to base my scurrilous gay rumors.

Ah well!

If Rep. Cantor was just being defensive with his claims that other members of Congress attended the Britney Spears concert, why didn’t he claim that more manly people than Mary Landrieu were there? You know, really butch guys like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, John Boehner, David Drier, Barney Frank, Jared Polis, Jeff Sessions, Patrick McHenry, Dana Rohrabacher, and Jim DeMint.

[re=273423]War Eagle[/re]: Don’t you?

Hopefully “what’s on your ipod” will be a campaign issue in eric’s district in 2010

There is no valid reason for a 45 year old, (supposedly) hetero male, to be attending events like this….not even if jack abramoff provided tickets

There seems to be some misunderstanding here. That woman onstage was NOT Britney Spears. That woman onstage SWALLOWED Briitney Spears.

Funny that Cantor would go to a show where a woman who actually could sing if she wanted to doesn’t sing at all with the only live words being “Thank you.”
How does this relate to Romania decriminalizing consensual incest?
I don’t know yet but somebody’s up to something. Showtime!

Roger the Shrubber March 25, 2009 at 9:39 pm

Whoa-hoa there, easy with the quoting.

[re=273572]102415[/re]: But she can dance. Like Anna Pavlova.

gliberal March 25, 2009 at 10:22 pm

Attending a Spears concert is now a “charge” that has to be denied or refuted. How can this walking penis think that Britney = entertainment and still have any credibility?

102415 March 25, 2009 at 10:27 pm

[re=273590]Roger the Shrubber[/re]: Ballet is gay squared. Brit is Mousehouse trained.Something is so not right. Oh,I’m home with a head cold watching A-Team episodes and doing Sudaphed and hot sauce. Never mind.

chidem March 26, 2009 at 10:05 am

I’ll be seeing Brit Brit in April in Chicago. Yes, I’m gay.

arewethereyet March 26, 2009 at 11:16 am

Could Brit be the new “Liza” for teh gays?

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 26, 2009 at 12:40 pm

[re=273797]arewethereyet[/re]: God, I hope not.
