Meet John Boehner, Republican House Speaker & Cryer

Is this a man-crush forming?

I was a little sad that in the Republican “wave,” the male Tea Baggers mostly won, while some of the craziest lady tea baggers lost, including the anti-masturbation witch (DE), world wrestling CEO (CT), “man up” Arizona know-nothing (AZ) (NV), and the tech titans (CA).

I find some small consolation in the growing popularity of right-wing Republicans who are public cryers. Most everyone knows about Glenn Beck, but now the spotlight turns on John Boehner, the new House Speaker (OH). He cries over innocent school children, the sacrifice of the soldiers, and his hardscrabble upbringing with 11 siblings. He’s also known for his orange skin color, heavy smoking, and coziness with all sorts of big money lobbyists. The New York Times remarked on “his quivering lips and moist lashes.”

Do you think men who don’t cry on camera are less trust-worthy?!

Daisy duke-wearing, white muscle queen promotes smoking in Japan

This ad is wrong in so many ways. Why is muscle mary pushing tobacco? Why is he white? Why, oh why, is he wearing daisy dukes? In some of the ads they show him only from the shoulders up. The full view is filthy in every way! Thanks, Tokyo Matt, for submitting this image for the Tokyo Moe readers.

Sumo wrestlers expelled for dope

The Japanese media has broadcast endless stories for over a week about top Sumo wrestlers who have been expelled from Japan for pot smoking. Even Japan’s top sumo official has resigned in disgrace, and not a single person has defended the wrestlers, originally from Russia, or suggested that pot smoking is harmless.

This orgy of condemnation, shame and expulsion raises a few questions beyond health. How are these big boys going to pad on the pounds (or kilos) without a bit of reefer? Why are sumo leaders called “stablemasters” and what does that say about the humans who perform this ancient tradition? Which will take longer for Japan to accept, pot smoking or gay human rights?

Sayonara, big Russian boys! Good luck, ex-stablemaster daddy!
