Copping a Feel

posted by on September 2 at 17:05 PM

Man, you can almost feel the light freckling


…and in other irrelevant convention news: Slade Gorton, a former GOP senator from Washington state (turned out of office by Maria Cantwell), walked by a few minutes ago. After he passed two delegates standing next to me looked at each other, their jaws dropped open, and one said, “Was that Larry Craig!” It must suck to look a little like Larry Craig at the RNC.

Ladies and gentleman, Joe Scarborough…

Nice arms, Dan. Hot. Do me.

I don't think it would suck to be Larry Craig at the RNC. I mean, he'd probably be knee deep in Log Cabinettes, wouldn't he? I would think he'd be as happy as a pig in clover.

Dan, I'm surprised when you reached back there you didn't pull out a wriggling Mr. Poe.

savage is turning into a gymqueen.

Let's have an Anderson Cooper/Dan Savage biceps competition and call it a "guns-off" to get NRA Republicans to show up.

Whoa, nice guns Dan.

I know, shallow, shallow, shallow. I've admired your work/opinions for years, but DAMN.

Posted by Lucky Pierre | September 2, 2008 5:29 PM

Wow, them arms...brought the gun show to the convention, I see.

Muscle will not turn grey hair black.

Does anyone else think it's ironic that Dan's wearing a Vera Project shirt?

Posted by Mike of Renton | September 2, 2008 5:45 PM

Lookin' rugged, Dan.

Posted by Gloria | September 2, 2008 5:58 PM

Holy crap, Dan. When did you become such a hot Daddy?

If you're going to Folsom this year, I volunteer to swap my ass for McCain's. Just sayin'.

Stop shaving your arms. God.

Posted by Mr. Poe | September 2, 2008 6:08 PM

Jesus Dan, you're lookin good!

I forgot what I was going to type. I was just so shocked to see all the previous comments - comments NOT about the RNC, Palin, McCain, or even McCain's ass - but instead they're all about your arms. Were you fishing for compliments?

Sure, they look nice, but they aren't going to help Obama win the election. Unless you're using the muscles to throttle your enemies (though I think I'd likely fall under that category... so avoid doing that). So maybe next time, have someone else pose with McCain's cardboard self.

On another note, though, I hope you swiped that cardboard cutout. Bring it back to Seattle and decorate it in your office!

@ Fact. But it makes getting swept aside all the more embarrassing, bub.

Good lord people, Dan and other gay men know what a few hours a week at the gym can do. I've seen him at mine in the past. Stop acting like being active and fit is some sort of oddity, Oh wait, in America it is an oddity. Nice arms Dan, keep up the good work.

Posted by Sargon Bighorn | September 2, 2008 6:35 PM

Dan, how much do I love that you're wearing a Vera Project shirt while copping a feel of the GOP nominee? Ha!!

Posted by Kate | September 2, 2008 6:38 PM

Dan, i thought the whole reason you have a kid is to get fat. Well, you're doing a crappy job. Where are the love handles?

Also, where's the Larry Craig cut out?

Posted by Alexis | September 2, 2008 6:43 PM

You look healthy and happy Dan; that's great.

Posted by Non | September 2, 2008 6:46 PM

I don't know. Standing next to McCain sort of makes you look old and pudgy. I'm just sayin'.

Posted by Balt-O-Matt | September 2, 2008 6:52 PM

DAMN. I should have grabbed you by the ass and dragged you to my room when I saw you at IML.

Posted by Jake | September 2, 2008 7:18 PM

No chest and shoulders though. Big biceps alone just make you look like you masturbate too much or got out on your minimum doing a nickel. Perhaps those are distinctions without differences. I'll let one of the smart hipster doofuses weigh in. Elenchos?

Posted by Bob | September 2, 2008 7:48 PM

John McCain, True American Hero, and some lascivious cardboard guy to the right. What gives?

Posted by Karlheinz Arschbomber | September 2, 2008 8:04 PM

Daaaaaamn Dan, yous lookin flyyyy

Posted by rockpoptart | September 2, 2008 8:27 PM

You stood that close to Joe Scarborough and emerged with your soul intact?

What's your secret?

Posted by Mac | September 2, 2008 8:27 PM

Dude, you are so gay. And hot.

Posted by Mike in MO | September 2, 2008 8:32 PM

Dan's T-shirt looks like some sort of Wheel of Fortune tease with unrevealed letters; I thought the missing letters were "IAG", and why wouldn't The Viagra Project fit in at the RNC convention?

A KIRO film clip from either Juneau or Spokane just aired showing the 'extended' Palin family boarding a plane to Minneapolis with Bristol bidding adieu to her hot hubby-to-[so-they-say]-be.

It's been a long time since a Veep's child got married @ Observatory Hill - like never. One supposes Cheney's daughter could have gotten 'married' there had Dick'n'Lynn permitted, but Family Values train wreck will not happen on their watch. Only death'n'destruction in Baghdad and Kabul.

Funny, I always thought McSame would be taller in person...

31 just got a new poster boy!

Posted by michael strangeways | September 3, 2008 9:37 AM

I love how more of the comments are about Dan's quality physique than about the cardboard cutout of Bob Dole 2008 next to him.

Posted by Gomez | September 3, 2008 10:21 AM

What #1 said. Damn Dad, you are aging well.
