Gross WaPo Headline Announces Rick Perry Has ‘Huge Opening’

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew never forget.Thank you, Washington Post, our crappy lunch tasted better on the way back up. The killjoys in editorial have already changed this headline to read “Rick Perry has ‘huge’ opening as many in the GOP establishment remain uncommitted,” which does not matter because we now have our screen capture for the rest of eternity and every “Rick Perry is gay” rumor post ever written.

This is what counts as political reportage these days, typing about candidates’ “openings.” You think that’s subtle, do you? Just watch, dear friends, this is only the beginning. We are a year and a half out still. The words “Bachmann,” “Santorum” and “backdoor” could very easily appear in a “real journalism” sentence together sooner than you think.

Also, the quote from the WaPo article that gave us this amazing headline has so many blow job references that we do not even know where to start:

“It’s a huge opening for Rick Perry — huge, huge, huge,” said New Hampshire operative Mike Dennehy, who is neutral in the race. “If he announces and really announces with a bang, he could gobble up a solid third of the Republican Party establishment in New Hampshire and, I do believe, nationally.”

“HUGE HUGE HUGE BANG GOBBLE” is how we read that. Thanks, enjoy. [WaPo]

This woman I was once friends with (translation: frustratedly had no chance with) was raised partly in England, and told me a story about being punished by the headmaster at her school: she had to stand looking out an open window and not make a sound or flinch while he paddled her. Is it something in the Thames?? (I think her particular kink was telling me that story.)

Limeylizzie July 12, 2011 at 5:49 pm

That is not allowed in a State school–those kinds of shenanigans are at those posh schools, fee-paying.

Chet Kincaid July 12, 2011 at 6:19 pm

They were still paddling over here in public schools (U.S. definition) up until about '74, my ass recalls.

Well, you have to pay for that sort of thing around here, too.

they changed it to “Rick Perry has ‘huge’ opening as many in the GOP establishment remain uncommitted,” because not everyone in the GOP is a big opening fan, many of them still prefer little openings, like in their high school age pages.

But, said Dick Wadhams, a former Colorado Republican Party chairman, “that does not mean they’re sitting around waiting for Rick Perry specifically.”

“They just want to get it right,” Wadhams said, “and they’re going to be thinking with their heads in addition to feeling with their hearts.”

Which heads are you referring to, Dick Wad-hams? The ones on their necks or the ones on their peckers?

If Ricky *is* gay, how is he going to keep from being outed by someone wanting to trip him up? There has to be someone out there that would launch that photon torpedo if it really existed. Audio of Gov. Goodhair in action or video, you would think someone would just happen to drop a few dozen copies of something somewhere or post them indiscreetly someplace. I'm not saying he is or is not, but I would think he would be cautious about opposition research and not just from democratic opposition.

Don't tell us it slipped by you

They were never allowed to do it to girls, in the UK, at least not in the State schools, because we have the tender parts.

I can attest to 1974, I was in Mississippi. Of course, being Mississippi, they probably still allow it, down there.

That's ludicrous. I have "tender parts," and they hang out on the outside, exposed to all manner of dangers; ain't all tucked up safe and sound.

I didn't say I agreed with it, but God knows what kind of crazy sexual fantasies that would have led to.

No doubt. I'm reading these books about post-war Britain by a guy named Kynaston; quite a lot of deprivation over there for the first 10 or 15 years after 1945, so maybe a lot of depravity to go along with it… Can't wait till he gets to the Swinging Sixties!

Memoirs of British writers are full of details.

I did see a pornographic re-write of _Jane Eyre_ once.

In Montgomery in 1968, the "coaches" would drill holes in the paddle to enhance its impact.

You should read Kenneth Tynan's diaries, quite entertaining.

Limeylizzie July 12, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I think the Bronte's are ripe for porn rewrites.
