John Ensign: Bondage Enthusiast?


via Talking Points Memo.

I decided to use Fox Nation's favorite trick in the headline for this post: hey, I'm not saying that John Ensign is a bondage enthusiast; I merely asked the question!

But then again, that's the bed in his ex-lover's house...

He is totally, obviously into bondage.

And at some point, did his lover's teenager son walk in on them? Hey, I'm just asking:

Meanwhile, their 19-year-old-son, Brandon, was paid $5,400 by the National Republican Senatorial Committee between March 2008 and August 2008. The payments, for "research policy consulting," ended the same month as the affair reportedly did, federal election records show.


It seems like there's a lot more to this story than first met the eye!

Forget the bondage issue... that bedroom is so ugly that it would simply kill any urges!

Aesthetic matters!

Yet another important thing lost on many in the GOP.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Oh, you have to look at the whole gallery: 100% ugly and not even a drop of personality. Everything looks costly, though.

FranIAm said...

Costly and ugly is a crime worthy of a stay in Gitmo.

I will look at the gallery, but only after another cup of coffee!

Matty Boy said...

I smell a whiff of jealousy from the Princess and Fran. Sure, they live on the East Coast and revel in the snark, but deep in their hearts of hearts, they long to have a home that can be described as "swank Vegas digs".

And the 19-year old! Less than $6,000 in about six months. Not enough to be described as rampant corruption, but a lot more than the average weekly allowance for a teen.

Minor gambling troubles perhaps? One modestly priced hooker a week?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Or on second thought, maybe we don't.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Oh yes we do. This story will get better before it gets boring.

I'm guessing it's enough to keep the kid and his pals smokin' the wacky weed.

"This story will get better..." Now, THAT'S a promise we'd like to see Ensign keep!

That bedroom furniture is too hideous to tolerate.
:0

My "favorite" "feature" is that rinky-dink floor lamp just randomly plopped over there. Yeah, that looks like it'll throw lots of illumination into that vast expanse of beige carpeting. Must be perfect for lighting Ensign's strap-on bondage parties. I kinda like the ceiling, though.

It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

Matty Boy said...

Thank you, blogenfreude. I now have new words to live by.

Did you hear? Lindsey Graham just recently admitted that, like Ensign, he too has "sinned". I wonder what good old Lindsey could have been up to? And why he feels the need to pre-emptively allude to his sins?

FranIAm said...

Great catch Frank! The floor lamp, very Courtyard by Marriot, I wonder if it comes complete with the energy efficient and impossible to read by bulbs that they use.

As to Matty's point about a whiff of jealousy, well I can't speak for PSP, but I can admit to just a teensy tad. (*snort*)

I'm off to see what Lindsey "Cranky Bottom" Graham has admitted to doing.

Tra-la!

Madduane said...

Is that a bed or a jungle gyn?

MajorMelFunkshun said...

I thought that WAS a picture from the Marriot. It's the new 'Robert Berdella' Suite!

How could people with that much money have funiture that ugly? I'm asking a serious question. Maybe I'm putting it backwards. How did people stupid enough to buy that furniture end up with that much money?

Christopher said...

Now folks. This is VEGAS money. So they really don't have any. They probably sold houses in California for a small fortune and then bought BIG in Vegas. That furniture screams "Rooms to Go."

Down South they call carpetbaggers like this "nickel rich."

g said...

That slide show is the ultimate example of bad taste. To think that someone actually CHOSE those pieces, those finishes, those shapes boggles the mind.

If I saw that furniture out on the street on "Large Trash" day, I'd pass it up.

Karen Zipdrive said...

1. Who'd fuck Lindsey Graham?
2. Re: this motel bedroom, I just hate it when people unqualified to do so pick out paint colors like this monstrous kidney bean shade.
Here's a free gay decorating hint--NEVER select wall colors that match ANY body organ.

FranIAm said...

Clearly there is more to the story! I hope that I won't be admonished for posting a link to that news source.

I think he wanted the money in order to redecorate, and who can blame him?

FranIAm said...

BTW, Princess is correct, that gallery contains some must see photos.

Whoever the hell thought that painting Italian words on the walls was a decorative good touch? The kitchen with its "live well" theme was one irony, but the smaller doorway with "in vino veritas" really got me laughing.

In wine there is truth? Now that's an understatement.

okojo said...

If anyone saw "Jesus Camp", This bedroom reminds me of the same motel like interior decorating that permeates throughout the movie. There is a reason we need gay marriage, style

I am kind of innocent of these things, but how is the bed set up for BDSM? I kind of see the iron centerpiece, but perhaps it is hidden by its tackiness..
