Column By Mike Bibb
Just when you thought Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (CA-D), couldn’t get any more ridiculous, she outdoes herself.
While her husband, Paul, remains busy dealing with his Memorial Day weekend DUI bust, Nancy was entertaining the crowd at the “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7” extravaganza in San Francisco.
I’m beginning to understand why Paul has a drinking problem.
Incidentally, a “Drag Race” – in this reference – is not two high-powered cars racing side-by-side down a quarter-mile asphalt track.
Actually, RuPaul’s Drag Race is sort of a high-heeled fashion and entertainment competition in which men dress in various women’s costumes and suggestively parade around a nightclub stage.
Apparently, Paramount Plus streams this stuff to anyone wishing to see it.
Other than pandering for notoriety and votes, I’m not sure why Nancy would be involved in such an affair. However, she seems to have an affinity for it. Maybe she’s attracted to guys named Paul. This was her second appearance, having previously visited the show in 2018.
I can hardly wait until her church bishop hears about this. He’s already suspended her from communion for her pro-abortion activities. Now, appearances at openly homosexual events may send him into cardiac arrest.
The Washington Times reported in a June 10, 2022 article, that Nancy “will make a special Pride Month appearance on episode five of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7.”
Continuing, the Times described the spectacle as “a group of talented drag queens who compete in challenges to impress host RuPaul, the world’s most famous drag queen, to win a cash prize along with a crown and title of America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
That’s quite a build-up to an award that probably most people never knew existed. I, for one, had no idea RuPaul was the world’s most famous drag queen and that he/she had his/her own queenly competition.
I suppose earning a crown and title as America’s Next Drag Superstar is comparable to winning a gold medal at the Olympics, Miss America, the Indy 500, or an Acadamy Award.
After seeing photos of a few of the ANDS contestants, I can only imagine what the 1st place trophy must look like.
Obviously, Nancy Pelosi is a friend of RuPaul and was invited to attend the show – thankfully not as a competitor. I don’t think even my heart could survive that.
After introductions, Nancy walked onto the stage wearing a bright yellow suit and proclaimed to the participants “Your freedom of expression of yourselves in drag is what America is all about. With the midterm election coming up, it’s very important people make their voices and their vote heard.”
I’m not certain what percentage of the drag queen community actually vote or are actively involved in the political process, but I guess Nancy believes there are sufficient numbers to make a guest appearance and pitch her schtick.
If it’s recognition Nancy is seeking, there’s another California happening that draws considerably more people than a RuPaul’s drag queen competition. It even has a best-dressed contest, too.
The annual Fallbrook Avocado Festival is attended by about 70,000 enthusiasts. Being California, a few fans may be attired in drag garb, but for the most part, it’s a family affair.
Nancy might repeat her same RuPaul speech, only substituting “drag” with “avocado” to achieve an equally appreciative response.
Who knew the two celebrations had so much in common? Perhaps, RuPaul could include an avocado-n-drag theme in his/her next year’s gala.
He could call it Ru’s Big Mama Guacamole.
