Tea Party Congressman Jeff Landry Really Hopes Nobody Saw Him at Snoop Dogg Show

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Gin and juiceThe Tea Party freshman who wormed his way into all our hearts when he held up some lame sign reading “Drilling = Jobs” at Obama’s fancy Jobs speech* like some sort of fainting Claymaniac at an American Idol “concert,” has been spotted taking in a doubtlessly cuss- and reefer-filled show by “urban” “entertainers” Snoop Dogg (Too High), a known Crip, and Kanye West (George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People), a known blah.

The concert, which capped a gala for Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans, was hosted by known lesbian Ellen Degeneres and known Italian Emeril Lagasse, and was attended by known Haitian community organizer Sean Penn.

When will Rep. Jeff Landry’s re-education begin?

*The fancy jobs speech where he elitishly and snobbishly asked kids to commit to either college, an apprenticeship, or training. That fancy jobs speech. [Uproxx]

WEED = JOBS

EatsBabyDingos March 14, 2012 at 9:49 am

That is a jobs plan I am willing to get behind.

FlownOver March 14, 2012 at 9:38 am

The rappers are near!

PS: Thanks to all the Wonkerati for my new P-ness.

memzilla March 14, 2012 at 9:50 am

Wait'll you get our bill!

BaldarTFlagass March 14, 2012 at 9:52 am

Congratulations! Maybe yesterday the p gods were smiling on all, I gained another also. I can't wait to get up into the 130s with Sorosbot and Barb; it's more important to me than getting a raise (which as a federal employee ain't gonna happen anyway).

Oblios_Cap March 14, 2012 at 9:58 am

I had to get a promotion into *shudder* management in order to see a wage increase. Life at the State level.

Guppy March 14, 2012 at 10:07 am

Nepotism: the only real way to get P around here.

WiscDad March 14, 2012 at 10:43 am

Lucky you. My P-ness grows, then shrinks, over and over. I keep trying to get it big and stay big but to no avail. Maybe I need Piagra.

Tundra Grifter March 14, 2012 at 9:38 am

He was undercover – oppo research.

bureaucrap March 14, 2012 at 9:39 am

To be fair, Landry thought the name of the foundation was "Make it Right-Wing".

Terry March 14, 2012 at 9:41 am

"Italian Emeril Lagasse"

Isn't Emeril's family Portuguese from New Bedford or thereabouts?

BaldarTFlagass March 14, 2012 at 9:46 am

If only there were some kind of website where we could look these things up.

Terry March 14, 2012 at 9:48 am

Just did. His Dad was French Canadian and his Mom was Portuguese and he grew up in Fall River. I was close.

BaldarTFlagass March 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

Fall River is like the Lisbon of New England. Portagees ever-whar.

HistoriCat March 14, 2012 at 10:31 am

French + Portugese – might as well be Italian.

Terry March 14, 2012 at 11:29 am

Just don't mention that theory to the French, French Canadians, Portuguese, or Italians.

Negropolis March 15, 2012 at 3:32 am

Or "some kind of Spanish."

Mumbletypeg March 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

I went there expecting the Google Doodle to have something to do with Pi Day. Instead it's all origami'd up like party favors. Pi Day was probably last year's doodle. The same year we learned this longtime formula is about to be superceded by Tau, leading to Tau Day of course.

FlownOver March 14, 2012 at 10:27 am

Can we bracket it with Delta and Chi? Because, food fight!

Mumbletypeg March 14, 2012 at 11:13 am

I am not one to give a flip about pee's normally, but your delight came across so genuine I have to chime in my congrats as well.

In the geeky spirit of numberliness, I'm wishing those here w/ 134p (few & far between) might recognize theirs is an anagram of pi and feel special today as well.

Barrelhse March 14, 2012 at 9:51 am

Terry, you a Masshole, too?

Terry March 14, 2012 at 9:57 am

No, my father is from westa' Worcester.

BaldarTFlagass March 14, 2012 at 10:02 am

I'm a Masshole, who has lived in Texas for the last 35 years. I guess that means I've reached critical Masshole?

Barrelhse March 14, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I'm a transplant here from Maine.

Allmighty_Manos March 14, 2012 at 9:42 am

I think Landry was hoping that Kayne West would tell the audience that the congressman also doesn't care about black people, causing a Landry 2012 stampede.

memzilla March 14, 2012 at 9:43 am

On the plus side, Landry's district will be the first to go under from the rising water that the climate change he denies is happening, happens.

Arken March 14, 2012 at 9:45 am

He was hoping Rappin' Rove would make an appearance.

Baconzgood March 14, 2012 at 9:45 am

And the right wing noise maker goes off in 5..4..3… (ABORT-ABORT-ABORT HE'S A REPUBLICAN!!!!!!!)

annettaj March 14, 2012 at 9:45 am

It ain't nothing but a G (op) THANG.

Hey Female Persons! It's the 101st anniversary of orgasms.

Callyson March 14, 2012 at 10:35 am

We'll come back to that.

Maman March 14, 2012 at 9:46 am

Aren't drug dealers displaying an entrepreneurial spirit? Isn't that what Repubs are all about?

Steverino247 March 14, 2012 at 9:46 am

Needs more Richard Cheese.

Oh my god, they're walking through snakes!!

hollywooddood March 14, 2012 at 9:49 am

Okay, but is he wearing bell bottoms?

CrunchyKnee March 14, 2012 at 9:50 am

Is that a jar of his own urine that he's carrying? You know, for the post-show piss-test.

DerrickWildcat March 14, 2012 at 9:51 am

Yeah so what? Clinton got a blow job!

Oblios_Cap March 14, 2012 at 9:52 am

The concert, which capped a gala for Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans, was hosted by known lesbian Ellen Degeneres and known Italian Emeril Lagasse, and was attended by known Haitian community organizer Sean Penn.

Verily, a hotbed of liberalism. Will this change Rep. Landry from a pleasant, well-mannered facist conservative type into an intolerant proto-liberal socialist communist? Inquiring minds want to know.

Did he twat any tweets while he was there?

Baconzgood March 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

Slightly off topic.

Ex-wife-Baconz friend put together a benefit for the homeless in Chicago. She was really really conservative. She booked Cypress Hill (not even listening to one of their songs)….The shock on her face when they started playing their set is somthing I'll remember on my death bed.

BaldarTFlagass March 14, 2012 at 9:59 am

HA ha.

Baconzgood March 14, 2012 at 10:16 am

When we driving to the concert she told me who was playing I said "Noooo, really who's playing".

She said "I booked them to raise awareness of homeless people with mental illness in the black and hispanic community. Especially with the youth since hispanic and black youth are most at risk"

Callyson March 14, 2012 at 10:36 am

Mission accomplished!
(But in this case, a good thing…)

Baconzgood March 14, 2012 at 10:46 am

Yeah but when the distinct smell wafted over us and C.H. started getting the crowd to yell "FUCK THE PO-PO" you can tell she regretted her booking decision.

horsedreamer_1 March 14, 2012 at 9:00 pm

"Insane in the Membrane" is a call to action.

Guppy March 14, 2012 at 10:12 am

True conservatives don't believe in vetting.

tessiee March 14, 2012 at 10:31 am

She should have hired the London Symphony Orchestra to back them up:

I believe Tauzin was the primary engineer of the Medicare Donut Hole, in service to Big Pharma and Big 'Shurrance. The shamelessness of his on-the-floor House lobbying, combined with the smugness of his sense of entitlement with which he took his revolving-door pharma job afterwards, makes me wish him…. er… shall we say, an extremely Boschian afterlife.

OneDollarJuana March 14, 2012 at 10:02 am

I thought "DRILLING=JOBS" was about legalizing prostitution.

hagajim March 14, 2012 at 10:16 am

There are jobs that go with that….of the blow variety.

BerkeleyBear March 14, 2012 at 10:43 am

Wrong Louisiana sleazeball. Easy enough mistake to make.

A Brad Pitt hosted event, you say? Looks like Liberal Hollywood has corrupted another upstanding GOP-American.

chicken_thief March 14, 2012 at 10:22 am

His boyfriend in the pic did a much better tuck job and does his make up better than Coulter does.

elviouslyqueer March 14, 2012 at 10:27 am

Well, he works for AT&T, but not as a lobbyist. He scurried off to Texas after getting beat by Charlie Melancon and now coaches lacrosse for Cat'licks and Frenchies.

BerkeleyBear March 14, 2012 at 10:46 am

Man, he looks pissed. I'm guessing from how his wife is dressed she was looking forward to rubbing elbows with various elites in NO, from Pitt to Penn to even that hack Emeril. From how he is dressed, he didn't want to come and has been trying to drag her out since the moment they got there.

mavenmaven March 14, 2012 at 10:55 am

Snoop Dog? He hasn't been blah for a long long time.

dadanarchist March 14, 2012 at 11:01 am

Snoop is a Paultard, so…

Sharkey March 14, 2012 at 11:27 am

Doesn't he realize how dangerous a contact high is?!?

Sharkey March 14, 2012 at 11:28 am

That's what I call "Smokin Tea!"

Terry March 14, 2012 at 11:28 am

His kid tried to assume Daddy's office, but had his arse handed to him by the people of the district.

Guppy March 14, 2012 at 11:38 am

What is this world coming to when a Louisiana congressman can't keep his seat in the family?

There's still people with last names like "Landrieu" and "Morial" running around, right?

AlaskaGrrl March 14, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Can we trust no one????

fuflans March 14, 2012 at 1:10 pm

meanwhile, his wife thought they were attending a fleetwood mac concert and dressed like stevie nicks.

owhatever March 14, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Getting shit-faced at a rapper concert = Jerbs.

glamourdammerung March 14, 2012 at 5:00 pm

An event to try to fix the damage to New Orleans from the Bush regime letting a major city get demolished and then not at the very least seriously attempting to repair the damage?

Oh wait, I forgot that according to the GOP, Clinton was apparently president until January 2009. Except for the five minutes or so that gas was $1.98 a gallon.

horsedreamer_1 March 14, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Drinking tea meant something else to the Beatniks.
