Not That There's Anything Wrong With That

NC-10 Congressman Patrick McHenry, named by Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny (albeit at Huffington Post) as one of five "closet cases" currently serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The real reason McHenry keeps drawing multiple primary challengers in the 10th Congressional District.

One thing I don't understand.  J.W. always posts unflattering pictures of those he opposes.  So why this picture of McHenry?  I would love to have a photo of myself in a pose like this. 

First, it is honest.  He appears to be caught in a human moment, enjoying a cigar with a friend. 

Second, he is not looking at the camera.  This does not appear to be a photo op. 

Third, his tie has come off.  The time for handshakes and official poses has passed, and he is just being a regular guy.

Fourth, it's cool.  His buddy looks like a gangster out of a 1940's movie.

Now, I'm not saying anything about McHenry's politics, but if I had a photo of myself that was this cool, I would add it to my profile photos on Facebook immediately.

Come on Mike, You must be aware of the symbolism of big fat cigars. Were you being disingenous?

Nope, I think it's a cool photo.  Please enlighten me.  Is this a phallic thing to you?

I don't see anything so cool about the photo.  It looks to me like they're examing the cigars to see if someone left semen or KY jelly on the ends.

 Is this a phallic thing to you?* Mike

Shame on you Mike for promoting a secret goat republican religious rites at this family values site.........Have you measure your Ass lately to see how many Republicans can hid in it?

I'm beginning to understand the phallic implications in your post, but could you be a bit more explicit?  Please don't mince words for me.  Just come right out and say it. ;)

Can I borrow your chicken suit?

Use your web cam and take a photo of yourself with cigar to post here.

Regardless, who should care what or where; McHenry or whomever. I don't know why this is posted--well, I can suspect. Is McHenry running against queers? That's a different issue. It's then like Foxx running on family values when she's already broken up one family.

On a related issue: it appears that Scott Brown and his wife and daughters have all got their personal issues. Who the f...k cares that they have been "totally promiscuous" in their early years. And, damn, his daughters have tits; who would've known?

I wish the congressional health insurance included higher premiums for tobacco users!
