Today’s Dish

How many of you want to move to Canada after watching last night’s opening ceremonies?

*raises hand* I love the winter Olympics. In general I mostly hate all competitive sports aside from baseball and roller skating, but I love almost all the winter games. Figure skating, cross country skiing, the luge, bobsledding. In my opinion, winter athletes have a lot more guts than summer athletes. Any idiot can swim laps or throw a volley ball around, but a figure skater is real artist. And flying down a mountain with nothing but two boards underneath your feet? That takes balls. That’s why having sex with a slalom skiier is on my bucket list.

Of course, not all of it was fun and games last night. Poor Nodar Kumaritashvili!

At Friday night’s Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony, a moment of silence was observed to honor Kumaritashvili and his fellow Georgian Olympians wore black armbands in his memory. Click here for more.

According to the Vancouver Sun, Kumaritashvili was traveling at speeds greater than 90 miles per hour at the time of the crash. The luge track had been called the fastest ever, and the AP notes that concerns were raised even before the fatal crash

I would advise against looking at the pictures. They’re pretty gruesome.

Check out this doozy. Nancy Elliot, New Hampshire State Representative, tells us we should repeal gay marriage because she wants to have anal sex.

“We’re talking about taking the penis of one man and putting it in the rectum of another man and wriggling it around in excrement. ” Rep. Elliott said. “And you have to think, I’m not sure, would I allow that to be done to me?”

I don’t know, but for me it would probably depend on the guy.

She went on in this same vein until interrupted by someone off camera. “Representative Elliott… Let’s keep our discussion directly to the bill.”

Rep. Elliott, however, was undeterred. “They are now teaching it in the public school. They are showing our fifth graders how they can actually perform this kind of sex… They are saying this is something that you, as a 5th grader, may want to try.”

Really? When I was in fifth grade we learned about fractions. Trust me, if there were any tutorials on anal sex, I would have remembered them. And during sex ed in High School, many condoms were passed around, but no power points on taking it from behind. You should really do something about that fedish of yours, representative Elliot. Perhaps a special date night with your hubby for Valentine’s Day?

And speaking of Valentine’s Day, does Tyra Banks plan on tying the knot tomorrow?

Is Tyra Banks getting married this weekend? The talk show host, who is known for being vocal about pretty much everything, has been remarkably tight-lipped about her love life, but there were rumors last year that she and longtime boyfriend, businessman John Utendahl, were engaged after she sported a ring on her left hand.

Tyra quickly shot down the rumor, but today an insider tells BettyConfidential that the America’s Next Top Model host is throwing a wedding at Alder Manor in Yonkers on Sunday — Valentine’s Day.

The invitations have been sent out for Obama’s lame Health Care Summit on the 25th.

INVITATIONS ARE IN THE MAIL…. We learned about a week ago that President Obama would host a bipartisan summit on health care reform on Feb. 25, but the details have been relatively scarce. Yesterday, the White House sent formal invitations to the participants, giving us a sense of how the gathering will shape out.

One of the first things to jump out is just how crowded it’s going to be. The House and Senate leadership of both parties will be there, as will the relevant committee leaders from both parties in both chambers. The invitation also encourages party leaders to invite four additional lawmakers from each party, and a staffer with an expertise on health policy. Factor in the president and his staff, Vice President Biden, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebilius, and officials from OMB, CBO, and the Joint Committee on Taxation, and we’re looking at a very full house.

I hope they RSVP’d. If I were invited to that summit, I’d be taking a giant blue beaker of grey goose with me.

That’s all for today’s dish. There won’t be any dish tomorrow, because I’m taking Valentine’s Day off. I would tell you who my valentine is, but a lady doesn’t kiss and tell. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. Some time ago, at a large family gathering, we hosted old friends we hadn’t seen in ages. They were our former parish priest, now defrocked, and married to another old family friend. They were as surprised to find us liberal apostates as we were to discover they’d gotten very conservative.

    The dinner conversation found its way to gay rights, and got very heated. I was actually staying out of it, finishing my meal. The ex-priest, who was sitting next to me, leaned over and said quietly, “TL, you understand that God did not intend the rectum as a love canal.” I whispered in his ear, “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it,” and went back to eating. He lurched away from me and said nothing more on the subject.
