Senator Vitter's Lonely Whores Club

Photo from here.

So totally heartwarming! Pony Pal™ John sent the following:

I thought of you this weekend when we were in New Orleans for the Krewe du Vieux parade. It's very rude & always features politically satire, and this year they had (unfortunately) a lame Beatles theme (Magical Misery Tour). This led to one of the floats being Sgt. Vitter's Lonely Whores Club Band, and the float had windows with
silhouettes of what appeared to be a prostitute taking a dump of Vitter's head [See above].

I love New Orleans.

There was also a Vitter Family Values float with a Wendy's (his wife is named Wendy) theme, and all the members of that sub-krewe dressed up as the fast food Wendy with the red pigtails.

The whole parade was a treasure trove of amazing images, most of which we were unable to capture on our crappy cameras.

But it warms my heart to know that on a cold winter night, the people of New Orleans will march down Royal Street dressed up as their Senator in a diaper.

Oh, me too, John, me too!

PSP Did you have anything to do with the window shade graphics?
If not, someone is channeling you in New Orleans.

No, that's real. Hilarious, isn't it?

Totally hilarious. The scat part totally made the float.
It's even better than a golden shower.

It is classic Krewe du Vieux - the Mardis Gras parade they can't show on TV!
