Democratic House Whip Makes Extremely Tacky ‘Whipping’ Joke At The African Leaders’ Summit

The African Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C., this week brought leaders from over 50 African nations to our nation’s capital to discuss such wide-ranging topics as women’s health to the threat of terrorism, according to WJLA.

The summit featured a host of key speakers, including former President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and congressional leaders. One such speaker was Democratic House Whip, Rep. Steny Hoyer (MA).

And Hoyer took the opportunity to make what he would describe as a joke, which was met with light laughter, and one person clapping.

Tacky for a Democrat. It would have been unforgivably racist if a Republican said it.

If a Republican did this, it would played on the nightly news of all 3 major networks every night for 30 days, every other night for 90 days after that, and once a week for the next year.

Hey, maybe Hoyer is vice-presidential material for Hilary.

Steny Hoyer, Pelosi purse-carrier, is not from MA (although he’d fit in with our deplorable congressional delegation). He’s from MD.

And I know he didn’t carry Pelosi’s purse. But the left still attributes “I can see Russia from my house” to Palin, so I say Steny carries Nanzi’s purse.

“I do not whip people.”

O——M——G! Imagine if a Republican had said that.

Well, it was Democrat who said it. How can we know for sure he was joking?

I like it! I will start telling that one, as well. Thanks for the idea. Let’s agree on an event at which this occurred. Any ideas?

Biden with Chains

Hoyer with Whipping

Do we see a pattern here?

It started with this photo (which angers me to no end). It was taken as the fascist cabal (democrats) were heading to the Obamacare vote back in 2009. It really does look like Steny is holding Frau Pelosi's handbag (while holding hands with his sweetie John Lewis).

Okay, and here is a caption for that photo:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California holding the gavel used to pass Medicare Reform, laughs as she walks across the street and into the U.S. Capitol as the House prepares to vote on health care reform in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Sunday, March 21, 2010. Walking with Speaker Pelosi are from left, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Rep. John Larson, D-Conn.

&&&
So we can say that Steny Hoyer carried her purse on March 21, 2010. And we can say that “some say” he does so more often.

Oh, “some say”. Good one. That Katie Couric-type line that really means “we made it up”. Every time I hear that my blood boils!
