Saturday, March 28, 2009 – this evening the Utah County Republican Women honored former Congressman Chris Cannon with a dinner at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. After the dinner and speeches, comedian Shawn Rapier brought Republican leadership on stage as part of his act. As you can see, he tricked them into dressing as the Village People. Do you recognize any of them?
From left to right are Utah State Senator John Valentine, Lieutenant Governor Gary Herbert, U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch, U.S. Senator Bob Bennett, and former Congressman Chris Cannon. After the Utah Republican leadership realized they were dressed as the Village People, Rapier played “Macho Man” and being good sports they all danced as seen below.
The crowd went wild. I am not sure that I have ever seen anything more hilarious.
