It would seem that Luke's people realized what a huge gaffe he made last week by saying he does not favor civil unions. Thus, he has scheduled a meeting with representatives from the Steel City Stonewall Democrats at 2:30 PM Monday. To clarify.
Apparently, Luke has stated that he doesn't know what a civil union is.
The Mayor of Pittsburgh — a Democrat under the age of 40 — does not know what a civil union is.
That is so blissfully ridiculous that there's simply no need for further comment.
Luke led the Stonewall Democrats on a merry chase during the primary, trying to choke out as much gay campaign money as possible without actually turning in his questionnaire. He does not have their endorsement.
I honestly think that he believes showing up at a few gay bars and PrideFest will trick us into thinking he's a gay ally. He honestly believes we are that gullible and naive.
Here's a question — why would Luke want to appease local homos in the 24 hours prior to his election? If its in the bag, who cares what we think until 2009, right? Hmmm …
