  1. What a great piece! I’m laughing a certain lower posterior portion of my anatomy off!

  2. That’s the funniest thing I’ve read all week. Cheers!

  3. Rumble in the Rotunda! The Asskick in the District! The Roundhouse in the Upper House! Oh screw it, I’m no Don King.

    Was it on Pay-Per-View or C-Span?

  4. This explains why Don King signed up for the Bush campaign. On a side note, why has there been almost nothing said about Don “convicted for manslaughter” King working for the reelection campaign. Why the heck would the Bush camp sign him on? Seems sorta off.

  5. If the New Yorker can write more pieces like that, I can stop reading The Onion. Their ad whoring has just gotten out of hand lately, and they aren’t quite funny enough for me to forgive it.

  6. Mr. Cheney . . . responded with a barnyard epithet, urging Mr. Leahy to perform an anatomical sexual impossibility

    I’m guessing the “impossibility” depends on your definition of “fuck.”

    On that note, I’m going to back away from this discussion now… Slowly…

  7. kmw – I suspect that the “impossibility” arises from the instruction to fuck “yourself.” Although I once know someone who could lick the tip of their own nose, so depending on Leahy’s degree of horsitude, I guess it could be possible.

    Pshaw. Everyone knows that debauched women prefer libertarians on account of the size of their parts, whereas the pure Democrat, man or beast, is below the average of Republicans. No honest Democrat would take his women-folk to the Libertarian Convention on account of the huge attractions and enormous temptations there and thereby offered to them.

  9. The political leanings of the anti-fun coalition lead me to conclude that the best parties will be hosted by couples in which the husband is a Democrat and the wife is a Republican.

  10. Grylliade, I always sort of suspected that Republicans and Democrats would have been switched in that. After all, there has to be some reason the male contingent of the Anti-Fun crowd comes down so consistantly on the side of the GOP.

  11. The female contingent of the anti-fun coaition comes down more or less equally on both sides of the aisle. Steinem to the left of them, Chenny to the right, into the jaws of death, rode the 600.

    Personally I’m inclined to agree with Thoreau.

  12. That’s Lynne Cheney, by the way. In case it wasn’t totally obvious.

  13. Shem, a better indicator of which side lacks, umm, gravitas, might be which side the female contingent of the Anti-Fun contingent sides with, doncha think?
