Nothing beats a good drag name, and these queens should know.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars alums Alaska, Katya and Ginger Minj appeared this week as guests on Comedy Central’s @Midnight with Chris Hardwick. While the episode is chock full of memorable moments, it was a segment on Republican officials that had us gagging.

The queens were asked to give the unwitting GOP leaders their very own drag names, and it’s safe to say they nailed this one.
Check out the below clip to find out what prominent Republicans like Steve Bannon, Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions should be called from now on:

Quick now, Mo Bro and all of your other GOP Troll Screenames. Remember, to come on here so you…the people who call Hillary Clinton a bitch, Nancy Pelosi old, hag or ugly, come in here and cry huge tears because some people in the GOP were given Drag names!!!
As yesterday in GA-6 proved, Pelosi is a drag on the Democratic ticket. We need to force her into retirement:
“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” said Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Texas), who supported Pelosi in her last leadership race. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.”
NY Times: “Democrats Seethe After Georgia Loss: ‘Our Brand Is Worse Than Trump'”:
“…prompting some Democrats to question the leadership and political strategy of Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader.”
This is the first time I believe that I agree with you
America should have two thriving, strong political parties. The Democratic party has no message and is now turning into an elitist, out-of-touch party with no message or overall idea
GA-6 proved this again. They pumped more money into this race than any other similar race and Ossoff got less total votes than the Democratic nominee did in the last election
Now, according to CNN, top Democratic strategists think they should pump money into Alabama and Utah to win those future races – not happening in those states
@mhoffman: Um, thanks, I guess! Thanks for the civility. Of course, Trumpism is at odds with most Republicans too, and I hope we can discuss that at an appropriate time.
Well, Cam/DCguy must be aware that you & I are definitely NOT the same person. Seems we have left him speechless and unable even to make his usual squawking about “multiple screen names” when he does that himself.
Cam/DCguy was apparently totally aware yesterday that much of the Democratic base is really starting to hate Madame Facelift. I wonder if he reads anything to the left of Amazon WaPo: Mother Jones, AlterNet, The Nation, anything?
So mhoffman (Mo Bro) let me get this straight. A Republican Seat that has been a Republican seat stayed Republican but with a much smaller margin and you are crowing like that is great news for you?
The GOP having to fight over once safe seats is the opposite of good news.
Oh, but please, keep on trying to avoid the topic of the Republican party having as part of it’s plank, the removal of rights from lgbt people, and it’s attacks on women. Did I get the GOP message clear?
Are you trying to spin Ossoff’s loss as somehow a win?
Ossoff spent more money in this congressional race than any one in history and he received 124,893 votes. In the prior 2016 election, the Democratic candidate who spent significantly less got 124,917. That isn’t a good sign for the clueless Democratic party. They aren’t sure what their message is
They couldn’t even beat a sh*tty candidate like Karen Handel
That’s exactly the sort of Pelosi attitude that worries me. “Well we came SO close!”
Democrats need 24 seats to become a majority again, and if we win 4 or 5 and “come so close” in 16, that’s not going to be much consolation. Dumping Pelosi would make EVERYTHING a lot easier.
“Ossoff got less total votes than the Democratic nominee did in the last election”
Ossoff spent more money in this congressional race than any one in history and he received 124,893 votes. In the prior 2016 election, the Democratic candidate who spent significantly less got 124,917.
It’s a special election and turn out was 66, 517 lower overall. So citing those statistics without including this piece of information is selective use of facts. In all 4 of the Republican held special elections, the 15-30% margins narrowed to 4-7%. The Democrats standing against them previously might have been weak but such a swing is still considerable and many Republican seats do not have such big margins. The only special election that was a Democrat seat registered 3.2% of a Republican vote.
My fact and your fact that it was a special election are irrelevant
The end result is all that is relevant.
Trying to spin a close margin as a win, is just spin. Whether you lose by 5% or lose by 20%, you still lose. Are you trying to say that even though you lost it’s still a win?
Based on that logic, you might as well say the Falcons didn’t really lose the SuperBowl, Germany / Japan didn’t really lose WW2, Mitt Romney didn’t really lose in 2012, and Justin Guarini didn’t really lose season 1 of American Idol because it was close
Even though I disagree with HeywoodJablowme on many issues, he is right with his thinking. Coming close, doesn’t cut it. They’re giving blank checks to candidates and throwing spaghetti at the wall without a plan, but if they don’t see that then they’ll keep losing
“”Are you trying to spin Ossoff’s loss as somehow a win?

This is how you can tell that the right wing trolls are scared. They have to purposely distort the facts. This was a special election between Presidential elections. The last midterm House race in Ga, the Democrat got HALF the votes Ossoff got. Ossoffs total was approximate to the number of voters in a Presidential election year.
The fact that you have to try to lie about facts on the ground to avoid these facts shows that you know there are problems.
You are calling it a victory that the GOP had to fight to hold seats they never had to fight for before, AND they won those seats by less than usual. Yeah, sounds really great there.
But again, As an anti-lgbt, Pro-Russia Trump troll, I get it, your only purpose is to try to alter the discussion here, and if that doesn’t work, one of your other screenames can always come on here and have a back and forth conversation with you.
“The fact that you have to try to lie about facts on the ground to avoid these facts shows that you know there are problems.”
Where did I tell a lie? I stated that Ossoff spent more money to earn less votes than the Democratic challenger in the last GA-6 election and that he lost. None of that is a lie.
Then you said I’m “pro-Russia”, when have I shown favor to Russia over the United States? I’ll wait for you to find an example.
Then you said “your only purpose is to try to alter the discussion here”, I was replying to HeywoodJablowme. I wasn’t even going to mention the GA-6 election until he brought it up.
Then you said that people on the right and myself are “scared”, scared of what? The left has lost over 1,000 government positions since Obama was elected, maniacs on the left are shooting congressmen in broad daylight, left-wing elitists are holding up severed mannequin heads and clamoring about assassination, liberal college students are violently protesting and stopping free speech, people are holding mock “die ins” on the capital and in parks, and many more instances with the left. Sounds like the left are the ones who are losing their minds
On a lighter note, I hardly ever say “too bad he’s straight” about any guy but I’ll say it about Chris Hardwick, he’s so handsome & such a sharp dresser! He’s fun to watch.
I could be wrong, but he seems like he would be tiny tiny tiny in person. If he looks that skinny on TV.
He recall he said once he’s 5’11”.
(sorry, lots of distractions here) – I mean, I recall once he referred to himself as 5’11” – when the comedian panel happened to be a bunch of 6’7″ giants, something like that.
Much taller than I thought!
We all have our thoughts about name calling:
Steve Bannon = Mary Doogan
Ted Cruz = Tedweena Cruisey
Jeff Sessions = Jeanetta Swish
Sean Spicer = Seanella Spicey
and more! :>)
I saw that episode (I record it every night). I was surprised to see he had drag queens on. They were really good, and got along with no drama. I was most impressed with Alaska’s sense of humor. If I remember correctly, she won.
