A Truly Big Tent Republican Party

Meet our newest Republican, compliments of Michael Steele:

After learning of the RNC's fundraising at a lesbian bondage club, porn star Stormy Daniels was so impressed that she decided to switch parties from Democrat to Republican. Daniels, decidedly not from the social conservative wing of the Republican Party, is nonetheless a fiscal conservative with some very libertarian beliefs. This from Politico:

. . . We can thank Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele for Daniels’s rightward turn. She was a registered Dem until the infamous Voyeur nightclub incident, she said.

“While this decision has not been an easy one, recent events regarding Republican National Committee fundraising at Voyeur, an L.A.-based lesbian bondage-themed nightclub, finally tipped the scales,” she said in a statement. “For me, this spirit can be summed up in the RNC’s investment of donor funds at Voyeur. As someone who has worked extensively in both the club and film side of the adult entertainment industry, I know from experience that a mere $1,900 outlay at a club with the reputation of Voyeur is a clear indication of a frugal investment with a keen eye toward maximum return.”

She added: “As is the case with so many of my fellow Louisianans, I have been a registered Democrat throughout my life. But now I cannot help but recognize that over time my libertarian values regarding both money and sex and the legal use of one for the other [are] now best espoused by the Republican Party.”

You just have to laugh.
