The GOP Pitches a Big Tent

In my second straight chauvenistic post -- really, very unlike me -- the National Republican Congressional Committee is reportedly going to be hosting a guest who brings new meaning to the term "press the flesh." Yes, joining President Bush for dinner on July 14 will be former gubernatorial candidate and adult film actress Mary Carey. The release has her joking: "I'm always excited to learn more about what's going on in our nation's capital, since most people in the porn industry think an Iraqi pullout is a form of safe sex." Good one! Ooh, ooh, how about this: Carey's excited to visit D.C. because most people in the porn industry think a leak investigation is what horrified couples do with a broken condom.

Anyway, it appears the dinner may actually have a policy effect as Carey said, of Karl Rove: "I know that he's against gay marriage, but I think I can convince him that a little girl-on-girl action now and then isn't so bad!" Atta girl, Mary. You get 'em. In answer to the obvious question here, she was invited to go with her boss, Kick Ass Pictures president Mark Kulkis, who is, wait for it, an Honorary Chairman on the NRCC's Business Advisory Council. His company's motto? "No Fake Boobs & No Condoms." Well, that actually does sound like family values to me... Carey, who plans to run for Lieutenant Governor of California this year, attended a similar invite-only fundraiser dinner for Bush in 2005, exclaiming "I love Bush because he's really hot!" (This is why Lieberman hates the cool kids.)

No word on what exactly she means when she says, "I'm going to need a lot of support from Republican lawmakers nationwide -- however I can get it." Maybe she's referring to that old Republican stand-by of draping herself in the flag.
