DNC To Officially Gay-Coronate Arlen Specter Tonight

by Jim Newell

Arlen Specter, what’s up with that guy, right. He’s a Democrat now! And being a Democrat means you have to do terrible abortion things in Hollywood, all the time, with Muslims: “Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) will make his debut appearance this evening at a national Dem event since switching parties. Specter will join Pres. Obama at the Beverly Hilton in LA for a DNC fundraiser… It marks his first outing with Obama — and with Jennifer Hudson, we should note. The Academy Award winner will sing at the event. As will Earth, Wind and Fire.” And it only costs $1,000 to $2,500 to attend! Or if you’re super rich like Tom Cruise and the famous Movie Stars, there’s “another dinner” for, uh, $30,400 (but it’s a DEAL because that’s the PER COUPLE price.) [Hotline]

The burning question, Jim, is of course which secretly gay movie star you will sell your virtue to for a ticket to the “special” dinner. My money is on Travolta.

Could I go to the “another dinner” without a date for $15,400, if I only have one appetizer?

I heard about this event. Everyone puts their voter registration into a fishbowl. Then the fishbowl is passed around, and whichever registration you get, you join that party. DC has never been kinkier.

So, being a Democrat has freed Specter to be all queer and Hollywood, but not to support the Employee Free Choice Act. Maybe once he get cornered at a rest stop on the PA turnpike…

For $30,400, I hope it’s an open bar.

What’ll he be wearing? Vera Wang?

Custerwolf May 27, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Ride me like a pony!

$30,400?? What’s the $400.00 for, a Happy Finish? Jesus…

Tommmcatt May 27, 2009 at 3:40 pm


For $30, 400, they better be serving the food on the tummies of various supermodels.

My conversation with Maurice White at the “other dinner:”

“Damn Maurice where your motherfuckin brutha at? That Verdine played the bass set to whup Bootsie’s ass, sho ’nuff. Hey, remember that time 35 years ago…?”

No initiation hazing? LAME!

american mutt May 27, 2009 at 3:48 pm

I heard the Black Eyed Peas will perform. I’d them $30,400 not to.

[re=325694]freakishlystrong[/re]: The $400 is for the fork. Otherwise you eat from the trough; the one replenished by the lobbyist with the pig flu symptoms.

NoWireHangers May 27, 2009 at 3:49 pm

[re=325683]jagorev[/re]: Of course there’s an open bar! The aborted baby bloody marys aren’t gonna drink themselves and Ted Kennedy can only do so much. Now that’s placenta you can believe in!

Munson Thurd May 27, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Menu highlight: the still beating heart of a baby arugula seal with dijon mustard.

Gay PArade at MExico City…soon!!!

Sofia! May 27, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Congratulations to Arlen!!=)

Will this involve spavined medical marijuana?

thejesusandmarycheney May 27, 2009 at 4:32 pm

This is the fundraiser the angry Cali gays are gonna protest the shit out of, right? Good way to pop Speckles’ dem-cherry.

Jukesgrrl May 27, 2009 at 4:49 pm

If I paid $30,400 for dinner and found Arlen Specter seated anywhere near my table, I’d hold my fish knife to my host’s throat until he gave me my money back. After Earth, Wind and Fire were finished, of course.

Crankenstank May 27, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Going to be quite a change for single bullet theory from the RNC’s pre-recorded muzak versions of Perry Como hits.

proudgrampa May 27, 2009 at 5:27 pm

[re=325683]jagorev[/re]: No, but with Cruise there, you’ll probably get a copy of L.Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics…

A Hilton?
