Breitbart in Newport Beach

Apparently Andrew Breitbart is in town, and since I'd never heard of him before he became the man who exposed Weiner's... well... the jokes are endless but suffice it to say that I really don't care who he is. But what was interesting to me was he's seen here talking about monetizing (that's earning money from) the photos leaked to him of Weiner's penis, and also, maybe more interesting is that he refers to it as "Blue-boy circa 2005", "homoerotic", and "grotesque". 

I admit, I'm predisposed to hate this guy before he opens his mouth. He's kind of smug, and a little aw shucks it's just little old me, doing the job everyone else it too chicken shit to do. Is he getting paid to talk at a Newport Beach Golf Course? Maybe he's doing it out of the goodness of his heart, after all... Someone has to entertain people at golf courses.. What he's doing here is probably almost like.... community service right? And did you check out that PACKED parking lot? Wow. You couldn't get another car in there if you tried.

Do you buy him as a dogged pursuer of the truth? It can't possibly be that he's pretty pleased with himself to be at the center of a shitstorm of controversy holding damning evidence against a public figure and that he's milking every second of it. Not that he needs to do that. Apparently he's well connected and enjoys the friendship of shy conservative actors and stuff... 

Now. I don't know about you but my husband happens to have a penis I'm QUITE FOND OF. It's not, as far as I know, in any photographs unless it's about six months old and lying on a bear skin rug. But I can honestly say if my husband were in an impish mood -- and be assured he gets those sometimes -- and he sent me a picture of his penis, in no way would that be considered by me to be either Blue Boy inspired, or homoerotic, or grotesque. What that would be is PRIVATE. It would also be ill-advised, stupid, and perhaps even pathological, requiring counseling. If he sent it to some other woman it could definitely be called suicidal. 

But to call it homoerotic??? 'Scuse me? Isn't that just a little past punditry and into the territory of inflammatory? 

Let there be no mistake about this. I know homoerotic. This is homoertic:

And the following are links to homoerotic images. Please don't follow these link if you do not want to see adult themed, sometimes graphic images.

Andrew honey. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and what matters is who's smoking it.
