Hugh Hefner gives $2,300 to Clinton’s ’08 campaign

The Democrats have long been supported by those whose lives are wrapped up in pornography. Recall how Larry Flynt was the guest of John F. Kennedy Jr. at the 1999 White House Correspondents Dinner.

And Scipio remembers with fondness this article on the ‘porn belt,’ a charming area of our nation that oddly conforms to exactly those areas where Democrats are in the majority.

This headline

John McCain to call for less spending

is on Drudge this morning right above this article.

John Edwards’ campaign for president spent $400 on February 20, and another $400 on March 7, at a top Beverly Hills men’s stylist, Torrenueva Hair Designs.

Was McCain speaking of sweet little metrosexual boy-toy Edwards?

John Edwards, he of ‘two Americas’ fame, he of wife Elizabeth who fears ‘rabid, rabid Republicans,’ spends $800 a month on his hair.

The Democrats simply never cease to amaze. Their candidates have filthy mouths and pompous demeanors, exhibit treasonous behavior and are not above staining a dress or two. And now they present as a possible leader of this Republic a pretty-boy vain little fop like Edwards?


The Democrat Party has no men, only silly little girly types who are afraid of war, spend hours on their hair, seek out the votes of sexually confused semi-males and court the money of pornographers.

Here are more possible Democrat contenders, from Nancy Pelosi’s district.

I wonder how much these, umm…’guys’ spend on their hair?

Scipio spends zero on his hair, as he cuts it himself.

He used to never cut it, but has since abandoned such ways.

Say, I wonder how much this guy spends on his hair?
