Dick of the week: Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

Dick of the week Rep. Louie GohmertEarlier this week U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, made headlines after his appearance on a conservative talk radio show called, “Point of View” where he apparently went on a rant about gays in the military.

His reasoning why gays should be banned — they’ll want massages, which leaves America open to terrorism.

Really?  Gay men would be too preoccupied with getting massages from each other?  My response:  “You are too stupid to try and reason with so would you please just STFU Rep. Gohmert.

Le Clos des Fées: Les Sorcières

Wine ReviewThis week I picked up a bottle of 2010 Clos des Fées Les Sorcieres at my local wine shop, Brix South End, and I’ll admit I initially picked it up because I loved the label; it seemed appropriate considering Halloween is just a couple weeks away.

BosGuy wine reviewThe wine is a blend comprised of Syrah 50% and Grenache 30 % and Carignan 20 %.  Du clos De Fees les Sorcieres has a heady nose when you first pour it and a deep red hue that calls to mind some of the fruity characteristics you’ll taste when you first try the wine, but it is lighter than it looks and has a relatively soft finish.

The wine is going to appeal to most people and would pair well both with a dinner or on its own (as I enjoyed it on my couch).  While I will enjoy this wine year round, it would be great to bring to a Halloween party. If you live in the South End you can pick it up at Brix wine shop for $18.99.
