I think we can all agree on one thing: Congress is full
of politicians who prostitute themselves on a daily
basis to the highest bidder. They will sell us -- their
constituents -- out for a fistful of dollars. It's the best
little whorehouse in America.
So, a few weeks ago, we got the bright idea that s
omeone needed to go down to D.C. and bring some
order to this house of ill repute. That's why tomorrow
(Wednesday, June 28) night we will introduce to you
the newest member of our staff...
Tariq "K-Flex" Nasheed, the Awful Truth Pimp!
We went out and hired a real life pimp and then sent
him to our Nation's capital to walk the halls of Congress
and knock some sense into their heads.
It's one of the most outrageous things we've tried on
the show this year and the results are just as audacious.
I still can't figure out which moment I love the most --
when Tariq pushes Minnesota Senator Rod Gramms to
try on a pair of "ho heels," or the look on the face of the
Democratic National Party official when Tariq
compliments him on the party's pimping skills.
But here's the weirdest part. The piece opens with a
mention of Rep. Bill Thomas who chairs the House
subcommittee that regulates HMOs. Yesterday,
the Bakersfield Californian reported that unbeknownst
to us, Thomas had been having an affair with one of the
top lobbyists for the HMO industry! Jeez, does
everything have to be so literal?
Please, don't miss this episode!
Also on the show, we take a look at "Male Apartheid"
in the U.S., a country where men still rule, even though
we make up only 47% of the population.
And, for our "TV Nation" fans, we recall our early days
in New York when we did a piece placing a black man
and a white man on the street to see who a taxi would
stop for. The black man was award-winning actor,
Yaphet Kotto -- and the white guy was a convicted felon
and attempted murderer. Guess who got the most cabs?
Well, 7 years later, not much has changed. So, on this
week's show, I become Taxi Driver for a day, with just
one rule: I only pick up black passengers.
It's all on Wednesday night on Bravo at 10 pm/1am ET,
9pm/12am CT, 8pm/11pm MT, and 7pm/10pm PT.
Please let others know about our show and, if you can't
get Bravo, move to Denmark where everyone can watch
our show for free!
