With our Frat Boy-In-Chief setting the standard for jackassery in public office, it's not a shock to hear what passes for humor in the mind of Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT). Look at this knee-slapper:

On a congressional trip to the Middle East last month, Rehberg left an "Idaho Travel Package" on the airplane seat of Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho.

The contents included a stuffed sheep with gloves attached to it, a Village People CD, books on cross-dressing and sign language and a T-shirt that reads, "My senator may not be gay, but my governor is Butch."

The shirt referred to Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, who was caught in a men's airport bathroom sex sting, and Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter.

...Rehberg's travel bag was first reported by The Hill newspaper, which covers Congress. It said Rehberg was proud of the gift bag and quoted him as boasting, "I spent a bit of time putting the things together."

the man is a homophobic dinosaur - and like most homophobes, he probably has severe doubts about his own sexual orientation. i would be willing to wager that even if he didn't listen to the village people cd, that he perused through the books on crossdressing and sign language. i am sure that it took quite a bit of time before he could part with his treasures. frankly,the entire stunt sounds like something that larry craig might have done. really, truly sad.

Those who protest the loudest........

Wow. These people sure seem to have enough work to do.

I have to admit though, if I were from Idaho I'd totally buy that t-shirt.

Just sayin'.

Bill, I am certain that the shirt would look fabulous on you! Buy it! It will give you an incentive to visit! Idaho can be exciting!
