Our favorite editor over at the CP sticks his toes into the muck that is Ann Coulter's latest brouhaha.  As we mentioned earlier, the Pitt College Republicans have invited Annie to town for a talk on April 1, 2007.  While none of the College Republicans responded to his Potter's request for an interview, he does […]

I’m really pissed at Bill Peduto

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Lots of speculation tonight on Bill Peduto's decision to pull out of the mayoral primary race.  Pgh Comet and the Admiral are just a few speculating that Peduto has a master plan to run as an Independent, couldn't raise enough money, or really did refuse to go negative. I've talked briefly with both Political Junkies tonight.  […]

Lesbians Love Bill Peduto

Earlier this week, I attended a community meeting to learn what Bill Peduto has to offer us here on the Northside.  I must admit I was prepared to buy when I walked in the store, but I completely fell in love with the merchandise.  I liked what he had to say about taxes, the gay […]

Post-Gazette and Faggots

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I missed this letter to the editor from Keith Kondrich of Swisshelm Park (the most Euro sounding neighborhood in Pittsburgh).  Keith took exception with the supporters of Ann Coulter: That harmless little racial joke, that innocent sexual stereotype, that silly political epithet slowly numb us until discrimination, harassment and violence become commonplace, indeed socially acceptable.

Reg Henry Locked in Sordid Affair with Ann Coulter’s Male Alter-Ego?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, maybe it has just been a long day in the trenches.  Because I can't understand Reg Henry's latest column.  In what I think is meant to be irony, he positions her “babe” status against her man qualities — being a hateful jerk. I have a question. How is it that Ann Coulter is so […]

Reverend Janet Edwards Faces Second Round of Charges Over Lesbian Wedding

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Reverend Edwards once again faces church court charges for performing a lesbian wedding. Previous charges were dropped due to technicalities, which some suspect was a convenient way for the Presbyterian Church to sidestep the larger issues around gay and lesbian members of the faith community. A Florida minister has again filed a complaint against the […]
