Get yer GOPorn here! Tampa gears up for a lube hurricane!



We weren't sure what to think of this when it crossed our filth transom yesterday. For one, it seems like it would be easy to mock up some of those sort of strip/gay club flyers rather quickly for political purposes, so maybe it's all a scam? For two, a couple of us – one of us who is gay, one who is not – will be attempting to traverse the feeder bands into the eye wall of the RNC next week, and, hell, we really will need things to look at. After some fairly extensive, well, clicking, we found that it appears these are actual events occurring at actual erotica holes in the "strip-club capital" of the nation, or whatever. A Paul Ryan lookalike in a gay VIP grope room? Yes, please! Anyway, enjoy the's roundup and, if allowed by weather, look forward to some engaging RNC tongue-wagging  (cough) in our Sept. 5 issue! For now, here's a Funny Or Die video you should probably see.
