I thought we could all use a few laughs today, so after a serious conversation with Crooks & Liars‘ Susie Madrak about her piece “Anybody but Cory Booker,” we had some fun at the expense of today’s GOP and, yes, Anthony Weiner’s wiener.
There’s nothing funny about who NJ will elect as its next US Senator, but I’m with Susie. I’d much rather see a progressive like Rush Holt or Frank Pallone, but it seems as if the media has already anointed super hero Booker as senator. Meanwhile, NJ is battling some fierce weather today, so turnout will likely be even lower than expected. Stay tuned…
On to the laughter… I was joined this morning by Rep. Jack Kimble. I met him on twitter last week after he responded to a tweet I posted extolling the virtues of my favorite congressman, Alan Grayson. He responded by saying he thought I was talking about him.
His twitter bio says of him:
Conservative Congressman from CA’s 54th District. Author of Profiles in Courageousness http://www.ProfilesinCourageousness.com Believer in E pluribus unum (1 Nation under God) California’s Proud 54th Dist.
Yes, he has written a book called Profiles in Courageousness – first as an E-book, now available in paperback form, and he’s your typical uninformed teabagger-type Republican. Except that he’s not.
Then Laffy herself joined in to have fun with the news… Among the stories we discussed were
As for the Weiner-wiener jokes, I’ve been avoiding talking about them at all. But after seeing his interview with Buzzfeed, I couldn’t help but notice that his nose looks just like his penis (warning: graphic link nsfw)… or is it that his penis looks like his nose?
