Man In Village People Drag Mocks “Buffoon” Dem House Rep For Wearing “Whacky” Cowboy Hat: “Look At Her”

Esquire reports:

There are few more committed Big Hat Aficionados on the national political landscape than Sheriff David Clarke. The former Milwaukee sheriff has few rivals, apart from public lands freeloader Cliven Bundy—another inexplicably prominent figure in Our National Dialogue. So when Clarke saw a political rival in a big old western hat—and a bright red one, no less—the good sheriff felt the need to assert himself on the issue.

It’s good to see the president’s drones speaking his language. It’s also great to see they’ve inherited his lack of self-awareness. Clarke may think Wilson is “a buffoon,” but he’s the one who wears a bunch of shall-we-say unofficial medals on his uniform to make himself look like a four-star general. Clarke says the ribbons “have very significant emotional and real value to me.”

    So is it ok for him and wrong for her because she’s a woman or because she’s a Democrat?

    • AmeriCanadian


    • Jamie_Johnson

      He has a penis, which makes everything ok.

      • Dagoril

        Allegedly. And nope, I don’t want to see proof 😉

    • Daveed_WOW

      Of course. Democrats are the devil. As soon as you realize that’s how it looks to the Right, everything makes perfect sense. There really is no point in engaging them. Only disconnect.

  • kelven

    An OT to cheer everyone up. Princess Leia will forever be a badass you do not mess with:

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    When the right wing tried to disparage Frederica (because how dare a black woman speak out and be correct and make the President and a General look like fools), they did pick on her wig, her hat, because of course. I thought to reply, ‘What about Clarke, he’s a fool too, right?” – but it seems too obvious to even point out.

    Every day, I keep saying ‘I can’t believe that…..” and this was another example. I can’t believe that Clarke had to open his mouth to disparage someone for having a trademark look that he has also chosen for his trademark.

    I don’t have the photoshop skills to do a side by side “Who Wore It Better” but am confident it will appear in the posts soon and I think we all know the answer.

  • When I first saw the Clarke tweet, I was convinced it had to be fake.
    “NO ONE CAN BE THAT CLUELESS!” I said to myself.
    Now I know why he supports conservatives: They’re the only ones dumb enough to pass laws that allow people like him to carry guns.

  • Outlaw Woman

    There’s nothing more that white racists love than a black man ridiculing black women. It’s like some sort of justification for their own racism and misogyny.

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      I betcha in real life if they were side by side, Clarke would be like a little boy. You don’t mess with a tough black woman and she WOULD slap him upside the head.

      • kaydenpat

        I would love that!! Knock that hat off his idiot head.

    • Steverino

      It is also a justification for the usual right wing analysis that the exception somehow disproves the rule.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Said in past posts and chuckles generated: Clarke’s pseudo tough guy perpetually angry shtick always makes me think he just recently found out the “BBC” is a stereotype not a guarantee.

    • edrex

      there’s no need to bring british television into this.

  • William

    Clarke is just jealous that he won’t ever be pretty enough to wear an outfit like Rep. Wilson’s.

  • The man has no fucking clue he’s a parody all by himself.

    Plus he killed people in his jails. We must never forget that.

    • kaydenpat

      That poor man who died of thirst comes to my mind every so often. So horrific.

    • Vista-Cruiser

      That’s one reason why Republicans like him so much.

  • Professor Barnhardt

    For the fashion-challenged out there, THIS is how you wear a cowboy hat:

    Full disclosure: I wore a cowboy hat to work today. I wear a cowboy hat to work every day. Because I like cowboy hats; that’s why.

    I don’t like the hats that either Clarke or Wilson is wearing. Each, though made his or her own choice, and I have no say in the matter. Fashion is a personal thing.

  • JWC

    Like I said yesterday her hat is prettier and For A DEM she wears Red better than a GOP

  • Tawreos

        • KCMC

          I’m on both.
          Licking my screen.

          • TampaDink

            Mine was delicious. Whose monitor tastes better?

          • MT YVR

            Is… is this new code? Did… did I miss a new one?

            Oh lord. Now I have Melissa in my head.

            Crawl inside, wait by the light of the screensaver
            Come to my Windows, I’ll be home soon…”

            I’ll have to try it. “Wanna lick? Your monitor or mine?”

          • KCMC

            started licking rim first…

          • Todd20036

            Hmm, if you’re at work now, best not to look behind you.

          • KCMC

            There’s a retired black Marine behind me

      • MT YVR

        (sigh) I miss that look. So so pretty.

      • Pollos Hermanos
        • KCMC

          So need that in my backyard.
          And in the garage.
          And on the kitchen floor…


        This reminded me of the scene in Running With Scissors when young Augusten takes his quite adult boyfriend to his Mothers women’s poetry circle. I still bust out laughing every time.

    • zhera

      Aah, the good times. It’s important to remember those, especially in this dreadful era.

  • Jeffrey

    Her outfits are ridiculous, as are his. But at least she doesn’t wear phony uniforms with fake medals.

    • Treant

      There’s ridiculous and knowing it (and working it) and ridiculous and thinking people actually take you seriously. She’s the former. He’s the latter.

      Many’s the day I’ve looked a little ridiculous. I totally work that Kermit the Frog green shirt by humming “Rainbow Connection.”

    OK, quite honestly when I sat down and clicked on JMG and that pic popped up I said to myself “why is Ken Curtis on JMG and with sky scrapers in the background”? Anyone remember Ken Curtis? One of my favorite character actors.

    I’m getting sorta frustrated that some are bagging on Rep. Wilson and her penchant for cowboy hats. Well, sorry but there’s all sorts of theater and style choices in politics that are much more concerning, ie; Clarke. And, lets not forget Zinke’s patronizing first day of office.

    “Interior secretary Ryan Zinke rides a horse to work”

    Zinke also demands that a special flag be flown over various fed buildings whenever he’s on site.

    • William

      “Zinke also demands that a special flag be flown over various fed buildings whenever he’s present in the building.”
      Zinke is not the bloody Queen.

      • Dazzer

        Please note: the Queen never has to demand that any particular flag is flown when she is in residence. It’s the general populace that thinks it’s a good idea.

      And here I thought it was a horse with 2 asses…

  • NZArtist

    OT: This is the correct response when you realize your religion conflicts with morality.

    From Pink News in the UK. New Zealand has a new Prime Minister who is an ‘agnostic’ 37 year old woman, centre-left politics.

    “New Zealand’s new Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern quit Mormon Church to support gay rights

    • zhera

      A religious person who adjust their world view according to facts?

      Did NOT see that coming! Well done, Ardern!

  • JDS

    O.k. this mixed up Uncle Tom has just got to STFU.

    Zero self awareness. This is amazing.

    12-star general. And I’ve never understood, and I still don’t understand, why so many police chiefs adorn themselves with four stars when hierarchically and in terms of size of force commanded, one star would be ample to document their position and satisfy their egos.

  • TimJ

    Important correction to the Esquire quote. Clarke doesn’t wear stupid medals, he WORE stupid medals. He isn’t the Sheriff on Mke County anymore. Thankfully.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Way OT but I thought this was hysterical

    Is that a ten-gallon hat, or are you just overcompensating?

    It’s bad enough when white people support this administration, but when it’s people of color, you wonder why they support a group bent on their destruction.

    • Spray on abs

      Just as baffling as Log Cabin Republicans. I don’t get it.

  • BartmanLA

    It’s obvious that as long as they “tow the line” of the GOP and don’t get uppity, they’ll allow a few minorities to have a voice no matter how silly and small it is. This guy takes the cake though, and the irony of him calling Congresswoman Wilson a buffoon is pretty much lost on this idiot.

  • Jerry Kott

    They know they lost the argument because it was never a debate. They have nothing to defend so they change the subject and try to shoot the messenger.

  • wds

    “Man in Village people drag mocks “buffoon” Dem House Rep for wearing “whacky” cowboy hat ” the best headline I’ve seen in a long time!!! Do you think Clarke will give himself a new medal for saying that?

  • TexasBoy
  • The Milkman

    Forget the hat. That prison pussy is an abomination that needs to be shaved off immediately.

    Also, Miss Thang is wearing too much flair. Coco Chanel said that a lady should remove one accessory before leaving the house.

  • Bob Conti

    I particularly like “Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout.” He has more flair than a server at Fuddruckers.

    Clarke is wacky (and not in a good way), Wilson is colorful, flamboyant, or perhaps eccentric.

    Do not insult the Village People in such a fashion. This old drag queen is nothing more than an uncle tom with a fetish taste for white ass…to kiss and suck so don’t get excited. She has a little LaToya Jackson in her fashion concept with those bogus medals, clearly overcompensating for a small dick.

  • James

    He’s a moron, but she does look ridiculous in that giant sparkly hat.
