It's hard to believe that the Examiner today reports on the "repercussions" of the 1997 Jack Davis birthday bash without mentioning the most damning of all the party antics: A man being sodomized with a Jack Daniel's bottle.

Or is it hard to believe? After all, we're talking about a newspaper that endorsed both Sarah Palin and Meg Whitman.

Still, we know that Republicans like sex and whiskey, too. Needless to say, we were a little deflated when today's paper toned down one of the most famous political birthday bashes in San Francisco history.   

Ah yes, the notorious 50th for Davis used blood, bondage, and booze to entertain more than 300 attendees, including Sheriff Michael Hennessey, State Sen. Leland Yee, former Mayor Willie Brown and 49ers President Carmen Policy.

It was this raunchy birthday bash -- which Davis called performance art -- that made national headlines and riled the community. But in the Ex today, the festivities from almost 15 years ago had been toned down, making it sound more like a bachelor party than what it really was -- an S&M playground.

The paper calls it a "debauchery with a number of sexual acts" that are talked about to this day.

Talked about everywhere, except in the Ex.
