No Teabagging, Larry, you know the rulesWe know that it’s not easy being a gay Republican! We can ignore the fact that the Republican Party, as a policy, would rather that gays not exist, or that, if they do exist, their emotional attachments not be given any recognition by any level of government whatsoever; people will do some crazy stuff for lower taxes! No, the real sad thing about being gay in the Republican Party is that you’d have to spend all your time with people utterly lacking in any sense of whimsy or theatricality, whose idea of a funny joke is a picture of Barack Obama with a bone through his nose and whose idea of drag is dressing up as Patrick Henry. Well, Los Angeles’s gay Republicans are tired of fitting in with this gaggle of squares, and will be “out and proud” this pride weekend by dipping their balls into the mouths of various politicians.

OK, not quite really! But the LA Log Cabin Republicans will be holding a “Tea Bag Toss” at Christopher Street West, in which flamboyant partying gays will be given the opportunity to win prizes by throwing tea bags into the open mouths of depictions of Jerry Brown, Nancy Pelosi, or … Sarah Palin?

[LA Log Cabin Republican President] Schmidt said including Palin was an attempt to be nonpartisan and he noted that she raised the sales tax while mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

Oh, God, Sarah Palin raised taxes! Why did it take the gays to make this clear to the American people? BURN THE LIBERAL AT THE STAKE!

Anyway, we are all for gay Republicans cheerfully embracing the alternate meaning of teabagging that outrages teabaggers so, but are saddened that the teabags are going into people’s mouths. Anyone who saw John Waters’s Pecker knows that actual teabagging involves getting balls rubbed on one’s forehead:

John Waters says that the balls-in-the-mouth definition is a Britishism, so we should shun it as we do their filthy oil! We don’t expect straight people to know these things, but really, we had higher hopes for LA’s gays, even the Republican ones. (Thanks to hero tipster “Bruiser Spaeth” for the link.) [LAT]

    wait….is that Carl Rove getting teabagged? LMFAO

  • Lazy Media

    Uh, hang on, gay Republicans want to be nonpartisan? I’m not sure they’re clear on the concept of political parties, let alone teabagging.

  • ph7
  • JMP

    Looks like the Log Cabinites didn’t get the teabagger memo; they are supposed to pretend conservatives never used the teabagging and was a horrible slur made up by evil liberals.

  • Doglessliberal

    “Gay Republican”. Much like “pro-Colonialization Indian” or “pro-States’ rights slave”.

    Anyway, their pathetic little Palin Bagging is a poor imitation of Pride Week in DC. We have the DC Cowboys, also.

  • freakishlystrong

    4 whore diamonds for the whole fucking post, Jesus, I’m CRYING. And, I have an unfortunate habit of repeating OUT LOUD things that make me laff, and I’m doing that, in my OFFICE.

  • HedonismBot

    Oh yeah. Raising some local sales taxes. That is the number one reason to dislike Sarah Palin. Uh huh.

  • HedonismBot

    [re=596783]HedonismBot[/re]: Sort of like going after Al Capone for income tax evasion. Or going after Tony Wayward for doing a bad Hugh Grant impression.

  • Mr Blifil

    One might have thought ring toss was a more attractive proposition for this lot. More interactive.

  • chaste everywhere

    L.A. has gay people? I thought they all lived in Sacramento or one of those fruity sounding northern towns ending in ‘o’.

  • Pop Socket

    [re=596766]ph7[/re]: John Waters actually hates Honfest.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=596796]Mr Blifil[/re]: If by “ring toss” you mean Cock Ring Toss, then yes, absolutely. (Is SFW, vaguely)

  • ph7

    [re=596810]Pop Socket[/re]: He probably hates all of Hampden now.

  • Ducksworthy

    In Kentucky (and elseswhere?) they raise money at grade school events with “Corn-hole” games where children toss beanbags through holes in a piece of plywood painted to represent…no we won’t go there. I know the double entendre is not lost on the natives as I first heard the phrase corn-hole from a Kentuckian who was describing what he liked to do to his wife of a Saturday night.

  • SouthernDem

    Just for the record, it’s only hard to be an *openly* gay Republicans. The closeted self haters are just fine.

  • SouthernDem

    I talk good english.

  • nightshift

    [re=596756]Ripley_in_CT[/re]: First I have the image of El Rushbo consumating his nuptials, now I get Karl Rove being teabagged. Throwing up in my mouth yet again…

  • Lascauxcaveman

    I am sooo not gonna watch that video clip.

  • you cannot be serious

    Just hang some TruckNutz over the mouths of Adolph Pelosi and Gov Moonbeam and be done with it.

  • [re=596843]Ducksworthy[/re]: I was really trying to figure out how to work “cornhole” into this post, but it was alrady getting kind of out of hand. You haven’t lived until you come home for a visit and your fresh-faced pre-teen nieces all shout “Uncle Josh, come play cornhole with us!”

  • DC Hates Me

    “We figured this year we ought to take it up a notch and do something that is engaging and somewhat amusing and shows that we can even laugh at ourselves.”

    Or we could watch reruns of Revenge of the Nerds.

    [re=596766]ph7[/re]: Actually, the wonderful thing about Baltimore is every day is “Hunfest”.Oddly, I was recalling my youth there as I listened to a libtard complain about how nothing will get the oil out of a marsh. A rough calculation, however, suggests their is enough undergreased mullet in Glenn Burnie alone to take care of the problem.

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    Where do gay people get all that energy, doing these fancy political soirees and all and still having time to make pancake syrup?

  • Brendan M.

    [re=596843]Ducksworthy[/re]: I don’t think most of the vulgarians who play “cornhole” know what that French gibberish, “double entendre” means. The nearly-universal prevalence of “cornholing” is the only drawback of living in the Midwest, just about.

  • rikitikitavi

    On your forehead? Where’s the pleasure in that?

  • Geogre

    Raising sales taxes is a long time Republican Good Thing. You see, sales taxes are going to replace the income tax.

    Since sales taxes are regressive and hit the poor with a greater percentage of income than the wealthy — especially when the wealthy can circumvent said taxes by travelling away from the sales tax zone for a purchase or use the Interwebs — sales taxes are good Republican revenues, because those “Lucky Ducks” who “pay no taxes at all,” the poor, will finally have “to pay their share.”

    Unmitigated, unadulterated, uncut, pure evil, with a street value in the millions.

    [re=596869]Josh Fruhlinger[/re]: I moved to Indiana from San Francisco in 1998. Went to work for a big conservative law firm. First firm summer picnic, the flyer said there’d be corn-holing. I spent the next several days wondering if I should say anything (and laughing hysterically with my wife). Eventually I found out that yes, the younger lawyers got the double meaning, but most people over about 35 said it completely devoid of irony.

  • Red Zeppelin

    There’s always been a major rift between the Joseph Goebbels and the Jim Nabors branches of the GOP. It’s just their cross to bear!

  • Maus

    It’s hard to be fabulous and “frisky” while voting regressively and hating every iota of yourself.

    Log Cabin-ers are sad :(

  • Aurelio

    John Waters says that the balls-in-the-mouth definition is a Britishism
    Brits don’t use teabags with little tags and strings on them. They just use little bags, which they pull out with their fingers or with a spoon if handy. So Waters is just wrong. Teabags are as American as Sarah Palin in a US flag bikini.

  • Jukesgrrl

    [re=596766]ph7[/re]: [re=596934]dijetlo[/re]: The people who run HonFest are so nice, they probably even let Republicans in. My favorite requirement to be Bawlmer’s Best Hon: “Must be available to ride in Mayor’s Christmas Parade.” (Actually, the mayor ought to take the winner around with him the way Las Vegas’ mayor travels with show girls.) Ya gotta love Charm City.

  • Potater

    I dated a log-cabiner. I really think he just did it to be “edgy,” because when you live in Detroit, supporting child molesting plutocrats is “hip” compared to supporting Corruptocrats.
