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

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]

      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).

      1. Oblios_Cap

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

      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.

      1. Terry

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

      2. Mumbletypeg

        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 The same year we learned this longtime formula is about to be superceded by Tau, leading to Tau Day of course.

            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.

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

    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.

    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.

  3. Baconzgood

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

  4. CrunchyKnee

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

    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?

  6. Baconzgood

    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.

      1. Baconzgood

        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"

          1. Baconzgood

            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.

    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.

  8. Jerri

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

  9. chicken_thief

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

  10. BerkeleyBear

    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.

  11. Terry

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

      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?

  12. fuflans

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

  13. glamourdammerung

    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.
