Those Sexy Republicans

If I had known conservative Republicans had so much fun, I would have hitched my wagon to Michael Steele’s train.

You probably heard the news the Republican National Committee paid nearly $2,000 in entertainment costs at Voyeur Hollywood West.

That’s a swanky California nightclub with dancing ladies and a bondage theme. As Jennifer Steinhauer wrote in the New York Times, Voyeur presents “a rare occasion when the phrase “understated elegance” shares space in the same review as “half-naked girl hanging from a net across the ceiling.”

Sounds Republican to me.

To be fair to Michael Steele, the head of the RNC, he didn’t authorize the night out on the town. But still, some Republicans and right wing activists  have so much fun. A lot of the lefties seem so gloomy by comparison.

We have an anti-gay activist having an affair with a male prostitute while on methamphetamines, Larry Craig’s “wide stance” a few years ago, and the married, Republican former assistant South Carolina attorney general who was caught in a cemetery with a stripper, sex toys and Viagra.


Republicans don’t have a lock on this kind of behavior, of course. Just ask John Edwards. But you have to admit, some of the R’s sure know how to have fun.

If you want to take a walk on the wild side, become a Republican. Sex! Drugs! Kink! Naked ladies in nets on the ceiling! You gotta love it.

Here in Vermont, though, Republicans never got the memo about living it up. The closest thing our Republican governor, Jim Douglas, got to bondage was probably the time he almost tripped over the ribbon at a ribbon cutting ceremony he presided over.

Our lieutenant governor, Brian Dubie, is a high flyer in the sense that he’s a jet pilot, but the guy just oozes so much decency that he could be the world’s oldest choir boy.

I guess Vermont just isn’t particularly sexy. We’re famous for maple syrup, liberals and pretty scenery, but we are lame in the sex scandal department. Well, you can’t have everything.
