DeLay's Beaver



From Raw Story:

Celebrity auctioneer and former Congressman Tom DeLay (R-TX), reportedly generated plenty of laughs Tuesday night... with a barrage of Beaver-related double-entendres, Roll Call reports.

At the annual Safari Club dinner, DeLay managed to bring in $1,400 for the sheared--or shaved, some say he called it--beaver fur vest.

Excerpts from the Roll Call story follow:

“Who wants a beaver?” asked DeLay, whom attendees said looked happier and more relaxed than ever. Hoots and hollers followed.

The Hammer continued with lines such as, “Everybody likes beaver, even women” and, as a couple of people in the crowd recall, “The best thing about it, it’s a shaved beaver!” (Though two others, both of them DeLay supporters and protectors, said they think they remember DeLay saying it was “sheared beaver,” not “shaved beaver.”)

At one point, as the bidding went up, DeLay pointed in the crowd to Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) as he held up the fur vest and said, “Sen. Burr, they don’t have beaver like this down in North Carolina.”


How fucking cute.

Safari Club International, for those unaware, is soaked in blood.

Killing animals for food is not my cup of tea (nor is eating them, but that's another issue). But killing animals for sport -- or, in the case of Safari Club, to get points for your scorecard -- is reprehensible.

Some men hunt for sport,
Others hunt for food,
The only thing I'm hunting for,
Is an outfit that looks good...

See my vest, see my vest,
Made from real gorilla chest,
Feel this sweater, there's no better,
Than authentic Irish setter.

See this hat, 'twas my cat,
My evening wear - vampire bat,
These white slippers are albino
African endangered rhino.

Grizzly bear underwear,
Turtles' necks, I've got my share,
Beret of poodle, on my noodle
It shall rest,

Try my red robin suit,
It comes one breast or two,
See my vest, see my vest,
See my vest.

Like my loafers? Former gophers -
It was that or skin my chauffeurs,
But a greyhound fur tuxedo
Would be best,

So let's prepare these dogs,

Mrs. Potts: Kill two for matching clogs,

Burns: See my vest, see my vest,
Oh please, won't you see my vest.

people that hunt for sport have no right to do so. Its the same as stealing my stuff. Why can you kill a thing that a want to look at? Why can you take this away. I think at the very least this is selfish and utter displays these peoples complete insolence.
