And I Know Another Wonk Couldn't Handle It

|

I guess it's a slow news day, because Drudge is reporting (below a nipple shot of John Kerry's daughter) on the availability of thong underwear emblazoned with the logo of liberal radio network Air America. Please. We all know that the best way to turn on a discriminating political geek is to rock one of these.

  1. “Hot Reason Classic Thong:
    This product is designed to fit juniors.”
    ???
    Um, that’s just wrong.

    Also, on Kerry’s nipple, I bet she didn’t even know it would show, but under the intense lights that the media use, the fabric became see-thru.

  4. I thought Drudge’s headline “Kerry’s Daughter Shows Cannes” was pretty good.

  5. I wonder if Ms. Kerry has been contacted by the Superbowl Entertainment Search Committee yet?

  6. To be fair, juniors means that the wearer has narrow hips. It doesn’t necessarily mean “children’s” sizing. I wear alot of stuff in juniors sizes, and I’m 26.

  7. Does anybody actually buy these political thongs? I can’t imagine them as being a big turn-on. Thongs are nice, but thongs with Reason or Air America?

    Well, whatever floats your boat, I guess.

  8. thoreau,
    I can see some of the religious right using these things to promote abstinence education. Buy a pack of Jerry Fallwell, Bill Bennett and Rick Santorum thongs for your teenage daughter and no guy is going down there. Bam, there goes the teen pregnancy rate.

  9. Mo-

    I can just imagine the ads for the new “Falwell Thong Chastity Belt”.

    Or a girl’s going on a date, and her parents make sure she’s wearing the thong like she’s supposed to.

    Scary.

  10. My ultra conservative father wouldn’t shut up about this. “No woman dress like that and doesn’t INTEND to expose herself…” “Just goes to show what her father would be like as president if he allows his daughter to prance around like that…”

    Gee Dad, why don’t we just stuff all women into burqa and be done with it… oh yeah, you’re catholic, not muslim.

  11. B,
    Your theory is probably correct. Why else would a sane, non-blind woman wear white briefs under a see through black dress. Ms. Kerry, welcome to the world of media super scrutiny. Next time, wear black underwear and pasties under that dress.

  12. I think you should know, Cafepress uses cheap printing.

    When I sit at the computer in my thong, getting myself all moist reading H&R, I expect the colors not to run, ok?

  13. And it may no longer be a slow news day, as there are reports of Sarin Gas Shells have been found in Iraq. Might this be the beginning of finding these mass caches we have been promised?

    Or is this yet another False Alarm?

    And what was the story with the foiled Amman, Jordan attack? Were Chemical Weapons going to be involved?

  14. MarkS–

    Yeah, amazing how Kerry doesn’t have the common decency to tell his 30-year-old daughter on the other side of the ocean how to dress, huh?

  15. Air America must be full of idiots-

    I mean, how can they compete with the “What Would Jesus Do?” Thong?

  16. In the interest of equal time, I think we need a picture of one of the Bush twins topless too.

  17. I’m impressed with the picture of Kerry’s running mates. My thanks to Drudge and Reason’s Hit&Run blog for keeping me abreast of important developements.

  18. I was impressed with the photo of Kerry’s running mates. Thanks to Drudge and Reason’s Hit&Run blog for keeping me abreast of important developments.

  19. Oh for Pete’s sake! The damn CANNES Film Festival?

    “Senator Kerry, how do you pronounce Cannes?”

    Just fucking kill me.

  20. Please desist, Aaron. You’ll get Ricky Vandal back here again.

  21. Actually, I’ve waiting for the “Kerry can’t control his woman, but Bush is real man, and keeps the missus where she belongs” storyline to begin. This could be the kickoff.

  22. He doesn’t control them, he annuls them.
