This Is Hilarious

Posted by Phoenix Woman on June 19, 2008

There’s a bozo running around with Republican backing called Larry Sinclair who’s been claiming all sorts of bizarre weirdness about Barack Obama. The fact that the guy’s a known fugitive from the law and an all-around creep didn’t stop the National Press Club from inviting him to speak to them.

Well, he and his disbarred attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, showed up. His attorney is even more of a narcissist than Sinclair:

Of course, the club had made clear for some time that it should not be viewed as endorsing Mr. Sinclair’s claims simply for having agreed to host his mind-numbingly preposterous litany — heavens, no! All that could be said for the institution was that it was happy to rent out its space to anyone who might be willing to pay in order to switch on the microphone.

And pay Sinclair did — for the venue and its microphone, as well as for a kilted lawyer (with a suspended license) named Montgomery Blair Sibley, who informed those assembled that his preferences in dress were arrived at as a way to secure comfort for his unusually large sexual organs. “I don’t know why men wear pants,” he said with a poker face. “It’s a function of male genitalia. If you’re size normal or smaller, you’re probably comfortable with [pants]. … Those at the other end of the spectrum find them quite confining.”

“I asked him to wear a suit and tie,” Mr. Sinclair said ruefully. Then, he admitted to suffering from a brain tumor.

Well, Sinclair hobbled through the bizarre presscon, only to leave rather abruptly at the end. The reason: The cops were closing in:

I attended Larry Sinclair’s press conference today and was confused when he concluded by rushing out of the room, taking no more questions. The reason? He was arrested by the D.C. metropolitan police. I called the First District station where he was being held and confirmed that Lawrence Wayne Sinclair was charged as a fugitive from justice based on an outstanding warrant.

The only thing that would make this any better is if Matt Taibbi were to write about it.
