(Talking Points Memo)   "It was just weird. I mean, to me, you know, hey, if he said, 'Hey, you got really hot breasts man, I'd love to suck on them.' Then like, yeah, cool. But like, he didn't say that ... it was like what a gay guy would say to a stripper"   (talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 118

So I laughed at this:

Brian Beutler @brianbeutler

Lonegan for Senate. Because he'll chase skirts on Capitol Hill like a not-gay all of the time. For America.

"You can't follow her Twitter page and not know she's got those great breasts. How do you farking not know?"

Now, I'm not sure if you'll believe me, but I actually know several women in real life. Of those, a few of them even have great breasts. And yet, somehow, even knowing that they have great breasts, I manage to not tell them that I would love to suck on them. It's a little trick I do where I act like they are a person I am friends with and then I treat them as both a person and a friend. It's something I would recommend.

 he said Lonegan came up with most of the jabs they launched at Booker by himself.

"He's a great candidate, man. You know when the candidate like says to you, 'Rick, grow a pair of balls.' I always like to hear that, because Steve, he wants to win," said Shaftan.

Shaftan even suggested Booker's behavior earned him a place among some of history's most infamous sex scandals. He compared Booker's behavior to two politicians who were undone by their indiscretions: former Democratic senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart, whose presidential campaign essentially ended after the the Donna Rice scandal; and former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig

So an unmarried guy chatting with a stripper is the same as those? Got it.

NPR said today that Booker's lead has gone into the double digits due to the shutdown.

"Ladies and gentlemen, my opponent was not trying to schtup this stripper. Is this a man we can trust to send to Washington?"

The only people who think about being gay more than openly gay people seem to be Republicans.

I wonder why that is.

Seriously, WTF am I reading?

That's what a key strategist for a campaign thinks are good points to share in an interview? Is Rick Shaftan a 19 year-old frat boy?

Ok look.. another liberal lamestream drive by gotcha MSM media hit piece on a Republican, implying that he actually believes those crazy things by quoting him directly.

If they were operating at the level of a 19 year-old frat boy they would be several levels above where they actually are.

wow...soo...just...wow.

sooo...dont elect the other guy cause...he was polite to a stripper and treated her like a human being?  Wait...no...what am I reading?

FYI-The only thing remotely interesting in the whole conversation is the stripper, who has a sense of humor, works at a vegan strip bar, and....apparently....GASP...isnt a complete vegan.

Seriously...thats it.
 
2013-10-11 09:05:45 PM  
In a profanity-filled assessment of the race delivered via phone Thursday, Rick Shaftan, a senior staffer and key strategist on Lonegan's campaign, suggested voters would be turned off by Booker's "odd" behavior including Twitter messages the Democrat sent to a stripper, that Shaftan described as "strange" and "like what a gay guy would say."

In his defense, being a Republican politician kind of makes him an expert on that issue.

Girl From The North Country: So, do I have this right? Booker is not slutty enough for the party of family values? Mmmmkay then.


Close. What I got was that he's unfit for office due to his blatant failure to adequately and publicly objectify, sexually harass and/or slut shame a stripper. And that is worse (more gay) than soliciting sex in a public bathroom.

My brain keeps flashing an image of "This is a Senate campaign (Booker).....This is a Senate campaign on meth (Lonegan via Shaftan)", but I can't be bothered to photoshop it into existence.

I'm not so sure they think about it all that much; openly gay people, that is.

No guys, it's cool- he apologized.

I apologize to Steve Lonegan and his supporters if any statements I have made have hurt his candidacy and do not want these comments or my presence in this campaign to serve as a distraction to his efforts to win this election and save our nation from the radical left-wing policies of Barack Obama and Cory Booker.

"I shouldn't be talking anymore," Shaftan told the Wall Street Journal. He was responding to a story about a profanity-filled interview he gave to TPM on Thursday.

Was he on shrooms or something?  That was easily the most nonsensical thing I've read this week.

And it's been quite the week for nonsense. The jaw-dropping epic insanity of this week beats any I can remember.
