DWTS Exploited My Weakness for Cho

When I first heard that Margaret Cho was on the new cast for DWTS, I was in the Austin audience at Margaret Cho’s performance at The Paramount. She was kvetching about being sore from all the dance practice.

My initial response was “Crap, now I have to watch that shit n’ shinola. Dancing with the stars? Ugg.”

Yet another reminder to never say never.

“Why must you?” you ask. Well, because I love Cho more than I hate DWTS. DUH! Don’t you?

C’mon! We gotta take Cho when and where we can get her. Whether it’s on Lifetime’s schlocky yet charming series Drop Dead Diva, doing the tango on DWTS, or live at The Paramount.

Plus we’ll get to see her mom, which features prominently and hilariously in Cho’s stand-up.

Now that I’ve resigned myself to my pitiful fate, I hafta say I’m really looking forward to seeing Cho in sparkles, sequins and spandex. While performing her stand-up, she was already sporting a street-wear version of DWTS style. She wore a loose silky tunic — one-shoulder, sequined — that showed off her gorgeous shoulder tats. She paired the sparkly tunic with American Apparel’s metallic spandex leggings in spaceship silver; grounding the get-up with a great pair of ass-kicker boots. Mmm. Rugged and mmm soft buttery leather and mmm.

Sorry. My clothes-lust kinda took over for a second there. Lemme wipe the drool from my chin and we’ll move on.

I’m gonna enjoy seeing her twice a week for as long as this lasts. Once she’s booted, I’ll be free but I’ll be bummed.

I just hope she does the Robot. Cause that would totally rock.

No go show Cho some love! Give her some sugars! Form a rallying crowd for her to surf through. Join Team Van-Cho. GO!

Obama: He’s Black Enough

“All I need is my blackness, some others seem to lack this.”

Schooly D says “Obama’s black enough!”

In light of last night’s “THAT ONE” comment made by McCain about Obama, I thought I’d post this most wondrous thing which I watched almost daily last spring. The McCain camp can turn the race screws and that might work on some but there’s tons of people out there who, like me, are absolutely giddy to see a black man this close to the White House. This is how change happens. Barriers are knocked down and change charges in. It’s not about politics for me so much as it’s about human rights. Race, yes. But also gay and gender rights. It affects all of us everytime one of us wins. So point out his blackness all you want Repubs. Yes, he’s black and it’s a beautiful thing.

Cho Eating Crap for Wanting to Eat Palin

Cho has been a long-time warrior for gay & gender rights

Cho has been a long-time warrior for gay & gender rights

When I read Margaret Cho’s blog “I Wanna Steam Up Those Glasses,” I laughed my ass off!  I called my RobotBoy into the room and read it aloud like it was foreplay and then HE laughed his ass off.  Maybe YOU will laugh your ass off but be warned — if you start to snicker and spit out your milk, well SHAME ON YOU b/c that makes you part of the patriarchy.  Cho thinks of herself as a feminist and so do I but apparently we are both wrong because it is (all kinda yummy) wrong to want Palin to relax her rigid thighs (and views) a little and it is wrong to laugh at the mere REDONKULOUS idea of it.  Arg!  This really burns me up — and not in a good way.  Palin made rape victims pay for their own rape kits but my sweet giggle is tyranny?  Palin’s positions on women’s rights are so scarily appalling that one wonders if she is even a woman at all…  so maybe some of us, like Cho, want to picture her in a different position entirely and who can blame us?  Though, Cho’s on her own as far as giving Palin sexual favors.  Me, I just like to watch.

I’ve been a Cho fan forever and I will never be a fan of Palin’s so maybe I’m biased, maybe my good taste and good sense has me skewed on this issue.  I only know that I trust one more than I trust the other.  Cho isn’t qualified to be vice-president or else I’d vote for her.  Cho for VP!  Well, why not?  Palin isn’t qualified either.  But imagine the insanity of asking a rape victim to pony up some dough so that their insides can be swabbed in the the hopes of justice?  Now imagine that the sperm she never asked for has taken root in her insides and the same dumb bitch who asked her to pay for her rape kit is telling her she has to keep those seeds of violence inside of her?  The RobotBoy asked me if I’d ever choose to keep the child of rape and I said, “I dunno, maybe…” and then he rolled his eyes like he didn’t believe me.  I turned 34 in June so maybe my clock is starting to tick and also I’m one to look for that silver lining, maybe I’d want to see if some good could come of it but then I have never been raped so who am I to say?  More likely, I’d need to spend the year+ (plus plus)  after the attack just trying to sleep through the night without nightmares.  I’d probably be pretty pissed when the rapist’s spawn woke me up with its hollering. It would probably be all I could do just to find a little spot of safe so I doubt I’d be up to providing a little one with the motherly safety it needed to overcome its genetic ick.  The RobotBoy and I have had this nature/nurture argument before and he rolls his eyes b/c he can’t get past the genetics issue…. which would be a valid worry… I argue nurture but would I risk the nature?  That’s a hell of a gamble.  I have to wonder “Has Palin even walked her mind through this?”  Well,  I bet Margaret Cho has.

Cho for VP! Viva Cho!

Anyways, here’s what Cho said that got the panties of some all atwist.  Personally, I think you’re in for a treat, but maybe you’ll be as appalled as I was at Palin charging for rape kits.  Either way, as a woman, as a feminist, I reserve the right to laugh my (well)tapped ass off!

I wanna steam up those glasses  ( a blog by Margaret Cho)

I am not voting for McCain. I hope that is obvious. I am sick of every one saying – “He was a good soldier. He was a good soldier.”

Um yeah. He was captured.

So he was not that good.

And now with Sarah Palin at his side, they have actually become the worst ticket imaginable. The only way it could be worse would be if Satan were running with Chuck Norris as his VP. Actually, Lucifer-Norris sounds better than McCain-Palin.

But even though I would never, ever vote for Palin, I am kind of obsessed with fucking her. She is sexy and hot in a MILF/Cougar way. Like you could have that real mature, straight to the point, adult, over forty, gonna cum multiple times with a big, oversize t-shirt on and nothing else and “I don’t care what I look like cuz I am gonna bust nuts in your curl” kind of fucking with her. I want to steam up those glasses and show her what a pitbull with lipstick really needs – doggy style!

Seriously – I wanna eat her Alaskan pussy from behind. Like an Eskimo. What?! I’m just trying to keep warm!

Although you know that thing is frozen and my tongue would probably stick.
