Before our wolfish readers start getting all hubba-hubba about this photo of Dana Loesch and Lauren Luxemburg, permit me to point out that the photo was taken at Tuesday night’s “Homocon” party sponsored by GOProud, held at an Ybor City gay bar called The Honey Pot. As a matter of fact, if you’ll notice in the background, there is what would appear to be some evidence of the general orientation of the soireé.
Considering that it was well past 1 a.m. when I got there — after hitting deadline for The American Spectator — the guys in the background might be closing the deal, so to speak. NTTAWWT.
Isn’t that cruel of me, to lure in you lust-crazed freaks with the babe picture, and then spoil it like that by pushing your homophobia buttons? Just to make the buzzkill complete, I’ll point out that Dana is married and her husband Chris could probably beat you up.
Pouring cold water on your concupiscent interests is necessary, because this blog is all about family values, and it would be unseemly — disrepectful, even — for you to be in a tumescent condition when the topic at hand involves the next First Lady of the United States:
At 5:40 p.m. Tuesday, when the New Jersey delegation cast all 50 of their votes for Mitt Romney, it gave the former governor of Massachusetts 1,150 votes — six more than the 1,144 necessary for a majority — and he at last became officially the presidential nominee of the Republican Party. Choosing a nominee is, after all, the actual purpose of the convention, but the roll call that marked the culmination of Romney’s long campaign (which has been effectively continuous since 2006) was not a primetime event. Instead, TV viewers saw a night of speeches that culminated with back-to-back speeches by the candidate’s wife, Ann Romney, and the keynote speaker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
It was a powerful one-two punch to cap the opening night of the Republican National Convention, which saw its first day’s schedule cancelled by fears of Hurricane Isaac, the storm that turned away from Tampa and instead headed west across the Gulf of Mexico. The delayed beginning did not lessen the power of the speech by Ann Romney, who told a story of her husband’s success that contradicted the narrative the liberal media have constructed about him.
“Tonight I want to talk to you about love,” Mrs. Romney told the thousands of GOP delegates gathered inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum. “I want to talk to you about the deep and abiding love I have for a man I met at a dance many years ago.”
Republicans in love? Whoever heard of such a thing? The media would have us believe that Republicans are soulless automatons incapable of love. At certain points during Mrs. Romney’s speech, one could hear a few reporters in the Media Filing Center sarcastically mocking her words. The liberal media have spent months pushing the Obama campaign’s message that the GOP is the Anti-Woman Party, but liberal journalists are scarcely able to conceal their contempt for Republican women like Ann Romney, who used her speech as an opportunity to appeal directly to women without the media filter.
“It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together,” Mrs. Romney said. “We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters.” Mothers “are the best of America. You are the hope of America. There would not be an America without you.” . . .
