Frequent bus riders will remember that Billy Long and Grover Norquist were to appear onstage at a Tampa comedy club -- we don't know if Grover made the show, but we shure know that Billy did AND somebody live tweeted it!
The tweeter known as "indecision" posted this tweet; "Our night at the Tampa Improv takes a Southern turn as Rep. Billy Long (MO) takes the stage. #twangy! 12:19 AM - 29 Aug 12
Right off the bat, Billy comes on stage and introduces himself: "I'm a congressman. Not too proud of that, but I am." 12:20 AM - 29 Aug 12
Well Billy, if you feel that way about it, why don't you quit.
This tweet from the tweeter known as 'indecision': "Rep. Billy Long just told a long but satisfying joke about Mitt Romney's joke telling skills. Too long to tweet. Ask next time you see him." 12:24 AM - 29 Aug 12
Then, according to those present, Long told several jokes about homosexuals ending with a joke about Congressman Barney Frank with the punch line being "an unfunded man date." Indecision @indecision: Rep. Billy Long just did a Barney Frank joke, punch line: "unfunded man date" 12:28 AM - 29 Aug 1
Long also told jokes about his recent trip to Israel and the scandal that erupted when several congressman on the trip, after a dinner at a local hotel, went swimming, one of them nude, in the Sea of Galilee: "On a recent trip to the state of Israel, they tried to get me to swim but I told them: I don't have a thing to wear."
(Billy liked that joke so much that he repeated it the next day: Daniel Libit @DanielLibit: At Jewish Republican event in Tampa, MO Rep. Billy Long cracks joke about the Sea of Galilee mini-scandal... 3:37 PM - 29 Aug 12
Yep, the next time Billy holds a town hall meeting I am going to ask him just that!
"I'm a congressman. Not too proud of that, but I am."
