It’s all after the jump. Read more on Bag Boys, Ball Boys…
 

Virginia Congressman: I WROTE A HIT PLAY

We know absolutely nothing about Representative Tom Davis (R-VA) except that his daughter has lousy taste in malt liquor. And a commenter claimed he’s a Christian Scientist, so we hope he stays away from spinach. And gay people, as he got a bit touchy during a Log Cabin Republicans fundraiser: Read more on Virginia Congressman: I WROTE A HIT PLAY…
 

Another Week, Another Political Kid’s Facebook Profile

Above, a picture from the Facebook profile of Shelley Davis, daughter of Representative Tom Davis (R-VA). Once again: we are shocked not by the fact that 18-year-olds drink, but by the fact that they drink such shit. Read more on Another Week, Another Political Kid’s Facebook Profile…
