....It was supposed to be a comedy an annual ritual where a member of Congress entertains a wonky crowd of journalists, lawmakers, and all variety of political insiders with jokes you wouldnt mind repeating to your mother.
But more people were wincing than laughing.

Edwards speech, reportedly written by co-creator of The Daily Show, Lizz Winstead, might have sounded great on paper or in practice sessions in front of a friendly audience, but it came off as a Republican hate-fest sprinkled with the kind of sexual humor that made the buttoned-up crowd squirm not laugh. Its a reminder how hard it is to entertain a tough crowd, like one filled with cynical journalists.
At one point Edwards, a Democrat from Maryland, made the equivalent of a sexual battle cry to ladies in the room: Come on, help me yall: I want to give a really special shout out to Nancy Pelosi and all my sisters in the libido caucus holla! she cried out, raising her hands above her head.
Reaction: blank stares and furrowed brows.
The next day, some attendees figured out she was mocking a recent speech by Mike Huckabee, who accused Democrats of telling women theyre helpless without Uncle Sugar and the government to control their libido with birth control.
....But five minutes of her talking, most attendees either tuned out and started scrolling through their iPhones, left the room altogether until she stopped speaking, or tossed back their glasses to gulp down more booze.
I think everyone in that room wanted to drag their fingernails across their face, said one congressional reporter attending.
Many agreed she should have quit while she was ahead.
Democrat always find what is profane, perverse, and trashy to be funny.
...Some just got up and left.
You can confidently say the urinals in the mens bathroom was full, dished one reporter who left the room during the speech to use the restroom because it was so awkward.
Duh, when will she apologize?
"Republicans are so stupid." *laughter* "I hate Republicans." *laughter* Republicans are so stupid. *laughter*
Which of these words doesn’t belong?
‘RAT, racism, hate, humor
omgosh—i want to see it in all its glory!
Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) delivered the keynote speech yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation. The far left politician compared Republicans to monkeys and gave a shout out to Nancy Pelosi and all my sisters in the libido caucus.
LOL..Oh the horror of being a reporter!.....The candyass better sign up for Obamacare so he can get his PTSD diagnosed....Seeing one of his own dying onstage was just too much for him....but the good news is...He can now quit his job and pursue what he really wanted to do all his life.....Stay home and smoke pot
