NV Dem Skips Hurricane Katrina Vote To Have Neck Lift

Mon Feb 27 2006 09:39:45 ET

 Skipping last fall’s vote on the Hurricane Katrina relief bill in order to get plastic surgery was worth it, says Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), who loves her new look, ROLL CALL reports. “For the last couple of years whenever I was on TV all I could do was look at my neck,” Berkley said in a recent online audio interview. “It was driving me crazy because my neck was starting to hang … and it was making me very self conscious.” Now, she joked in an interview with hosts of the Vegas-centric podcast show “The Strip,” “I have the neck of a 20-year-old and a 50-year-old body.” Until the Feb. 16 program, Berkley hadn’t said much about missing the September vote on the Katrina relief bill due to her nip-and-tuck job. Berkley, 55, told the show’s co-hosts, Steve Friess and Miles Smith, “I decided that it was going to be very hard to hide and I’m a very public person.” And let’s face it, she said, that brilliant plastic surgeon “turned back the clock 10 years.” Friess cracked Berkley up when he asked whether she thinks she’ll get more votes with her youthful, thinner neck. She laughed and said, “The 20-somethings! Maybe this will get them out to vote.” END


American “Democrats”. Giving a damn about us since………

    Can you say Abramoff? Or how about Tom DeLay.

    C’mon, Rob. Democrats have no monopoly on stupidity.

    What’s your point? Aside from pure entertainment, that is.

    You have this thing against liberals. So do me a favor, just to humor me. Please list at least ten Democrats who you think are liberals (more than ten if you wish). Oh, and BTW, offer up a FACT to support your opinion (i.e. he/she is a liberal because _________).

    Do you believe there are any Democrats who are not liberal, Rob?

    This should be entertaining.

  2. Hmmm. It’d be easier and faster to list those who aren’t, but few come to mind.
    I guess I could say Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman (sorta). Can’t think of anybody else.

  3. By the by, What about DeLay and Abramoff ( or Reid for that matter)?

    A.) I don’ recall Abramoff being elected to Congress, so it’s not at all possible for him to have had any sort of vote on appropriations for post-Katrina rebuilding.

    2. I can’t seem to find anything about DeLay skipping out on important votes for cosmetic surgery. No….no. Can’t find anything.

    I know! Maybe you can help. You seem to have this notion that you know more than I do. Perhaps you can find something to that effect.

    How I wish I knew more than you and everyone else. But I confess that age has brought the realization of how little I know.

    Thank you nevertheless for your effort. I think you basically proved a point I made in an earlier post. You DO see the world in black and white my friend. If Zell Miller and Joe L are the only NON liberals you can think of, then I think you see anyone who ISN’T conservative is in fact a liberal. I don’t believe that qualifies you as someone willing or able to find common ground under any circumstance.

    I took you to be articulate, intelligent, a man of conviction. But if you can’t develop an argument for your distrust of liberals by anything more than naming only two whom you think aren’t liberals, you are merely an angry queen. I underestimated you.

    As a gay man, you will never find a true home among Republicans in general or conservatives in particular. You will always be a token. Someone to whom the conservative base will point and say, “Well, we do have a FEW queers and that just shows we have a bigger tent, but as long as they’re here, can’t they do something useful? Like redecorate or something?”

    I know enough to know that Dems and liberals have to earn their stipes among gays, and many times they fall flat on their faces. But to paraphrase Churchill’s comment about democracy, Dems and liberals are the worst friends we could have, except for all the others.

    Rant and rave and be a DQ to your heart’s content, but in the end, it will be the liberals, not the conservatives, who offer you and me what we want most: equality, a place at the table, respect, dignity.

  5. Token, eh?
    Sorta like the way the “Democrats” treat the blacks?

    I merely said that those were the only two I could think of off the top of my head. NEVER did I say they were the only ones, did I?

    And if equality, a place at the table, respect, and dignity has to come with the neosocialism, arrogance, hate etc. then they can keep it. If I have to forfeit what I believe in to get it, I’d rather do without. Maybe you’d be satisfied with crumbs dropped from massuh’s table, but not I. I’ll be damned if I have to pander to the left just so they’ll like me.

    They can take their precious “place at the table” and shove it square up their ass. I want no part of it. How’s that for conviction and principal? You can call me a “drama queen” all you want and you can sit there looking down your nose, as liberals are wont to do, and shake your head while reading this, it don’t matter a damn to me, but that’s the way it is.

    BTW, you know damn well the liberals give us squat. And if you think that I’m nothing but an inarticulate drama queen, you may take your leave.

    And no, I’m not mad at the moment. Just letting you know how it is.

    Well, that’s more like it. Far better than the pablum you dished up the first time around.

    You might ask yourself how the many states and cities that offer domestic partnerships and civil unions and equal opportunity protections accomplished this (California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, etc). It certainly wan’t any thanks to right wingers. How are things in Florida? What have the Republicans done for you lately? Is your buddy Jeb Bush out there fighting for domestic partnership laws?

    I’m not looking down my nose at you, Rob. I’m rolling my eyes and wondering when you’re gonna wake up and smell the shit you’re dishing.

  7. Jeb’s doing fine.
    And if you think that I’m “dishing shit”, you have my permission to take your leave.

  8. Howard Says:

    You haven’t answered the question, Rob. What have the Republicans done for you and your partner? Are they truly looking out for your interests as gay men? Do you really support the likes of Anita Bryant? Phyliss Schlafly? Rich Santorum? Do you enjoy cuddling up with these fanatics ’cause they relate to you so well? Do you really believe that just because Cheney has a lesbian daughter that he understands one iota of your life?

    I’m not attacking you, Rob. I’m attacking your ideas, your opinions. I think you and I could likely be friends. In other words, you’ll have to work a lot harder to get rid of me.

    I enjoy provoking you. I’m testing your belief system. As you do mine. That’s what’s so fun about these blogs. Too many of my friends think the way I do, or are far, far more liberal than I am. I don’t like living in a ghetto of any kind, political, economic, cultural, any. I visit blogs like yours to find people who see the world differently. I learn things, get different perspectives. I laugh, cringe, ponder, get irate.

    C’mon Rob. You can do better than “you have my permission to take your leave.”
