Greg Davis (R-MS) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: The Wonkette

Merry Dickcember, one and all!

How has this week’s garden-variety self-loathing closeted Republican politician managed to out himself?

Ha ha, the headline sort of gives it away, but meet Greg Davis, the mayor of Southaven, Mississippi who went on a taxpayer-funded shopping spree to the tune of $170,000 in booze, fancy meals and a TRIP TO A GAY SEX TOY STORE, in Canada.

The sexytime freebies lasted until a band of fun-hating auditors noticed there were, uh, five hundred pages of receipts for the mayor’s extracurricular activities and decided to have a peek at his credit card expenditures.

Shit!

Right, so yeah, let’s start again: meet Greg Davis, a formerly-closeted gay dude who has never heard of cash.

And here’s another troubling thing Davis never heard of, this thing called “public records,” which allowed the media to get hold of the receipts after auditors handed them over to the City Council for review. DOUBLE SHIT.

From the frank-yet-oddly-named Commercial Appeal newspaper:

“At this point in my life and in my career, while I have tried to maintain separation between my personal and public life, it is obvious that this can no longer remain the case,” Davis said Thursday afternoon at his Southaven home. “While I have performed my job as mayor, in my opinion, as a very conservative, progressive individual [Ed note: Huh?] — and still continue to be a very conservative individual — I think that it is important that I discuss the struggles I have had over the last few years when I came to the realization that I am gay.”

Aw. Well, a few points, maybe, for a bit of late-breaking honesty instead of trying to create some elaborate farcical excuse like “I just wanted to talk about baseball with the gay sex shop salesman.” We would actually *almost* feel sorry for him, except that:

As for the receipts, Davis, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2008 on a conservative, family-values platform, said he couldn’t discuss specifics on the advice of his attorney.

Mitt ‘the flipper’ Romney; playing dumb, again!

Via: Huffington Post

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (see photo) told voters on the campaign trail in Iowa today that before he entered the world of politics, he never quite understood the difference between Medicare and Medicaid — the two government-funded health care programs that serve the elderly and the poor, respectively.

“I have to admit, I didn’t know all the differences between these things before I got into government,” said Romney. “And then I got into it and understood that Medicaid is the health care program for the poor, by and large.”

~

It was a throwaway line, coming in the thirty-eighth minute of a roughly 45-minute town hall affair. And Romney didn’t really have to say it. He was in the midst of talking up the similarities between his plan for Medicare reform and the plan introduced yesterday by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), and had soon meandered on to other topics.

But within minutes the admission had turned into a headache. Romney, as Talking Points Memo noted, had taken over health care companies while at the head of private equity firm Bain Capital. As Reason magazine noted, he also talked up his time as “a young consultant to a health-care company in the late 1970s” in his own book, No Apology. As a senate candidate in 1994, he spoke in detail about Medicaid policy, specifically with respect to whether federal funds could be used from it to fund abortion.

What would you think if I sang out of tune

Would you stand up and walk out on me

Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song

And I’ll try not to sing out  of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends

Mm, I get high  with a little help from my friends

Mm, gonna try with a little help from my  friends

Prick Perry’s Rumored Adventures In GAY SEX, Now in Book Form!

Via: Wonkette

Biblehumper bozo barbie Rick Perry has been annoying everyone lately with his truly awful attempts to prove to the Jesus People contingent that he deserves to rule the country for his Tex-ass tuff talk on gays in the military, so it’s fitting and timely that openly gay former Texas legislator Glen Maxey (a Democrat, we said “openly”) has just released a hilarious new book-form collection of the many sordid rumors indicating that Rick Perry may just be the most monstrously self-loathing closeted old queen in America.

~

Gawker’s John Cook brings us this money-quote excerpt from the book:

The [Craigslist] posting asked for someone willing to unlock the door, turn off the lights, and lie face-down on the bed, legs spread. [Texas real estate agent] James replied to the ad, and did as instructed. As he lay on his bed in the dark, James heard someone struggling to open the door. Shielding his eyes, he ran out and opened the door…. “He jerked down his shorts,” [James said], “It lasted about a minute. He had a little dick. It was the worst fuck of my life. And on top of it all he stunk because he had been jogging. He then pulled up his shorts and put the used condom in his pocket.”

As the mystery man tried to leave James’ apartment, he struggled with the front door, which had a tendency to jam. The man started yelling for James to help him…. As James opened it…his face was illuminated, and seen by James for the first time.

Oh my God,” thought James. “I just got fucked by Rick Perry!”
