Five Years After ‘Gay American’ Scandal, McGreevey Just Some Christian Dude

by Sara K. Smith

Best philandering governor of '04BLAST YOU JIM McGREEVEY. Once upon a time the former governor of New Jersey was so funny, with his exotic “gay American” ethnicity and his alleged sexyhot TGI Friday’s Three-for-Alls with his wife and another dude. But now he is just some nice seminary student trying to help ex-cons re-enter the workforce, and you can’t really wring a lot of comedy out of that. Read the interview anyway! He seems like a nice man! Nicer than shitty old Jon Corzine. [Inside Jersey Magazine]

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

you can’t really wring a lot of comedy out of that

But that could be more than enough plot for a gay porno or four

now he is just some nice seminary student trying to help ex-cons re-enter the workforce,

Which would explain the name-tag that says “Hi. My name is Workforce”.

Gallowglass August 14, 2009 at 1:44 pm

Dammit. We always lose the interesting ones, but we’re stuck with Mark “Got the house to myself so I can whack off in any room I want” Sanford.

ForTheTurnstiles August 14, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Will someone please explain to me what New Jersey is for? It seems like a storage locker for people with irritating vowels and pants that don’t fit right.

AbstinenceOnly Ed August 14, 2009 at 1:46 pm

TGI Friday’s serves up some delicious COCKtales. You should try the “NJGuv”— it’s a cosmopolitan stirred by a man’s penis.

FlownOver August 14, 2009 at 1:50 pm

OK, let’s fine-tune Warhol: In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes – then not, then later famous again for just long enough for everybody to say “Who? Oh, yeah.”

Witness the power of this fully armed and operational Regional Magazine!

Dave J. August 14, 2009 at 1:50 pm

I hope the former Mrs. McGreevey knows that there is a certain empty governor’s mansion down south of New Jersey that could use some serious sparkin’.

AbstinenceOnly Ed August 14, 2009 at 1:50 pm

[re=386575]AbstinenceOnly Ed[/re]: not a dog’s penis, that’s called a Santorum.

JadedDIssonance August 14, 2009 at 1:51 pm

Damn you Wonkett, for showing me these snapshots of happiness that trifle with my everlasting soul!

Min August 14, 2009 at 1:51 pm

There’s some serious bitterness in the responses to that article. I don’t know if it’s due to McGreevey’s perfidy, anti-gay sentiment, or simply being forced to live in NJ, but it’s pretty damn toxic.

x111e7thst August 14, 2009 at 1:51 pm

2004 = Sexy sex in three-for-alls
2009 = Serious seminary student
2011 = Murderous meth fueled rampage in a suburban mall or parochial school

ummm August 14, 2009 at 1:56 pm

[re=386590]Min[/re]: I think it’s from living in New Jersey.

queeraselvis v 2.0 August 14, 2009 at 1:57 pm

[re=386590]Min[/re]: You think that’s bad. Read the comments on the linked article about his even-lower-than-low current popularity. Scary stuff.

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 14, 2009 at 1:58 pm

But now he is just some nice seminary student trying to help ex-cons re-enter the workforce,

How does sharing stories about prison blow jobs help ex-cons re-enter the workforce?

Regina August 14, 2009 at 1:59 pm

“on a recent gray morning ..” Anybody else misread that?

WadISay August 14, 2009 at 2:02 pm

There’s an Inside Jersey magazine? Shouldn’t it be Inside Fucking Jersey? Opening the cover can’t be for the faint of heart.

Patty Dumpling August 14, 2009 at 2:13 pm

I guess Love Won Out yet again…

Roger3815 August 14, 2009 at 2:16 pm

He’s an embarrassment to bisexuals everywhere.

bitchincamaro August 14, 2009 at 2:16 pm

I’m torn between remembering McGrievous as the ambisexual, fast-food filching, orgyist, or the Jeebus-loving spreader of The Word to his flock.

O.K. I’m no longer torn.

Look to the future, and you will see New Jersey!
Illinois thinks it’s got some kinda lock on the shitty politician thing, but Ronnie Blago is strictly amateur by Jersey standards.
Nice try South Carolina, but the Garden State still roolz.

Every politician in the land of the mighty Turnpike is either under indictment, in the closet, or controlled by the mob.

Patty Dumpling August 14, 2009 at 2:19 pm

Time for a very respectful, hetero-erotic two-for-all. At a Cracker Barrel.

Les Paultard August 14, 2009 at 2:20 pm

As long as they don’t take the First Lady Sandwich off the menu at TGIF.

norbizness August 14, 2009 at 2:27 pm

We tried to pull a Donald Draper, but it’s hard with a name like McSkeevy.

Country Club Jihadi August 14, 2009 at 2:28 pm

TGIF now serves up a hot loaf called ‘The Body of Jim, The Bread of Heaven’.

shadowMark August 14, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Every day almost every story is poetic counterpoint to that townhall street poet’s unrhymed couplet: Jam it down our throats in 2009/We’ll stick it up your ass in 2010.

Suds McKenzie August 14, 2009 at 2:35 pm

Yeah, nothing gay has Ever happened in a seminary.

Joshua Norton August 14, 2009 at 2:37 pm

[re=386635]Chain Tattoo[/re]:

And there’s good old Chris Christie of Rove Attorney Scandal fame waiting in the wings to take over as Governor.

Good times.

Joshua Norton August 14, 2009 at 2:40 pm

[re=386660]Suds McKenzie[/re]:

They just have a looser definition of “praying” than the rest of us do. Those crazy, fun-loving Catholics.

Terry August 14, 2009 at 2:52 pm

Well, there is some precedent for gay Irish guys to go for religious vocations.

Hedley Lamar August 14, 2009 at 2:57 pm

I’ll volunteer to take his former hotwife to Applebys…. maybe we’ll order the creampie.

bitchincamaro August 14, 2009 at 3:03 pm

[re=386693]Hedley Lamar[/re]: That’s “big” of you.

zenferret August 14, 2009 at 3:30 pm

[re=386572]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: New Jersey is for burying the bodies you killed in New York

hobospacejunkie August 14, 2009 at 3:34 pm

[re=386705]bitchincamaro[/re]: Yeah, I thought it was mighty white of him, too.

ForTheTurnstiles August 14, 2009 at 3:51 pm

[re=386748]zenferret[/re]: the bodies I killed in New York… during kinhin

pondscum August 14, 2009 at 3:59 pm

Didn’t she claim to not know he was gay? I’m sorry, but one look at that photo and my gaydar is pegged in the red zone.

AbstinenceOnly Ed August 14, 2009 at 4:31 pm

[re=386779]pondscum[/re]: Maybe she just liked pegging his red zone?

masterdebater August 14, 2009 at 4:35 pm

[re=386599]ummm[/re]: I agree. That would do it for me.

ericstoltz August 14, 2009 at 4:59 pm

What do you mean you can’t find comedy in this story? Send it off to Red State and see what they come up with. People who are annoyed by compassion will definitely come up with something high-larious.

kipperthegod August 14, 2009 at 6:06 pm

Ah, the church, the closeted man’s best friend since about 400 a.d. Remember, you can’t spell “seminary” without “semin” (sp.)

zhubajie August 14, 2009 at 7:22 pm

She already has the strained smile of a political wife.

as.the.world.burns August 15, 2009 at 10:26 am

[re=387293]zhubajie[/re]: i’d be willing to volunteer to make it wider.

LoweredPeninsula August 16, 2009 at 3:26 am

Quite possibly the most unsurprising news of the year. Gay, Irish-Catholic former gov goes to seminary. Why knock me over with a feather. Oh, shit; I’ve just double entendred all over the floor.
