Ameriblog has a post about the President throwing a swanky cocktail party to seduce the A-list gay men and women back to their side. It makes me wonder if the two gay men who live on Mt. Washington would agree to stop using their home to raise money for officials who are not good on gay and lesbian issues? Do you think someone could talk to them about it? And if they refuse, then gay people should not attend the parties.
Does Pittsburgh have a gay A-list?
“Joe and I will have more on this tomorrow and through the week. But the rumor we heard last week is apparently true. We found out today that the White House has decided to throw a big gay party at the end of the month. It's clear that the purpose is two-fold. First, the White House is trying, again, to surround the president with A-list gays in order to show how “gay friendly” he is – he's even willing to give a speech in a room full of them for a full 8 minutes! And second, the White House hopes that a little champagne and fancy food will convince the A-listers to throw the rest of you overboard. Because, after all, what's two gay service members discharged a day and an ongoing effort to legally label you as akin to pedophila and incest, when there's champagne to be served.
I think it's fair to say that, unless the White House shows significant action on Don't Ask Don't Tell and DOMA by the time of this party, any representative of a gay organization attending this event is going to met with a swift community-wide boycott of their organization.”
