Montana: homo-hysteric prank by GOP congressman

With our Frat Boy-In-Chief setting the standard for jackassery in public office, it’s not a shock to hear what passes for humor in the mind of Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT). Look at this knee-slapper:

On a congressional trip to the Middle East last month, Rehberg left an “Idaho Travel Package” on the airplane seat of Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho.

The contents included a stuffed sheep with gloves attached to it, a Village People CD, books on cross-dressing and sign language and a T-shirt that reads, “My senator may not be gay, but my governor is Butch.”

The shirt referred to Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, who was caught in a men’s airport bathroom sex sting, and Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter.

…Rehberg’s travel bag was first reported by The Hill newspaper, which covers Congress. It said Rehberg was proud of the gift bag and quoted him as boasting, “I spent a bit of time putting the things together.”
