The Wedding is On!

posted by on November 11 at 8:52 AM



The competition to fill the vacuum left by Senator John McCain’s defeat—and by the unpopularity of President Bush as he prepares to leave office—will be on full display at a Republican Governors Association meeting beginning Wednesday in Miami.

The session will showcase a roster of governors positioning themselves as leaders or future presidential candidates, including Sarah Palin of Alaska, Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, Charlie Crist of Florida, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Mark Sanford of South Carolina.

If CNN starts trotting out the "America Votes 2012" caption for this event, I'm going to scream.

They purchased matching noses!

Well, we just elected our first African American president.

Now we have a chance to elect our first gay president (beard wife notwithstanding).

I thought Gay people in Florida could not get married.

#5 - to each other! It's fine to grow/marry a beard.

tracey ullman meets demi moore.

Yeah, but what about Bristol's wedding? I hope that loving, blessed union doesn't fall apart now!

My money is on his marriage lasting longer and having more sex, at least with each other, than Bristol's...

We should probably start a fund to send Poe down there on a special mission. If anyone could nip that campaign in the bud with a big ol' gay sex scandal, it's him.

The hotel staff really hates working these governor's conventions. Those governors get handsy when they're drunk! Plus, they're rotten tippers.

@10, the fund would have to cover the blue dress Poe could stash away for the right moment to turn over to the FBI

I misread the first enboldened word in that article as "propositioning," which still fits into the general tone of this commentary.

@10, I'm in for the airfare, probably even the hotel. I'll need others to help with expenses.

I'd so do it. Even if I failed—which I wouldn't—it would be worth it for a picture with Crist. But it's in Flooooorida. Gross.

It'll be like The Graduate.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | November 11, 2008 12:00 PM

It would be the opposite of the Graduate.

In the Graduate, it was Mrs. Robinson trying to seduce the young, innocent one.

In fact, this isn't like The Graduate at all.

Damn you, Bellevue Ave!

Posted by NapoleonXIV | November 11, 2008 12:42 PM

Really. Simon & Garfunkel had one good song, and it's in Almost Famous, so The Graduate can fuck off and die.
