Empire State Pride Pitch Perfect on Hillary

Evita With another Clinton election on the horizon, gay support for the architects of the Defense of Marriage Act seemed a fait accompli, but lo and behold, the head of one New York State gay organization is having none of it.

The head of a leading gay rights advocacy group in New York has begun criticizing Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's position on same-sex marriage and encouraging gays and lesbians to stop giving money to her re-election campaign. [. . .]

In his memo, which was reported on Tuesday on the Politicker Web site of The New York Observer, Mr. Van Capelle said that he refused to "lend my name and sell tickets" to any fund-raiser sponsored by a gay group for Mrs. Clinton's re-election campaign. He said supporting such fund-raisers for Mrs. Clinton would "actually hurt" the gay and lesbian community.

"It will send a message to other elected officials that you can be working against us during this critical time and not suffer a negative pushback from the gay community," he said. "We have become a community that throws money at politicians, and we demand nothing in return. And that's what we get: nothing. It's the wrong message to send."

Mr. Van Capelle notes he will still vote for Clinton, but in his capacity as the head of a gay rights organization, he is not justified in signing on to fundraisers for a candidate working against the group's expressed interests.

Perfect. Hopefully certain others will follow suit.

They're Not Dangerous Because They're Cartoons




Malbug_13Ever since the days of "Davey and Goliath," the religious right has relied on the power of animation to ensure that our kids clean their plates, and keep it in their pants until marriage.

Now, SNL's "Saturday TV Funhouse" has hit upon some new characters to teach children valuable lessons, such as: "Pat Robertson," who sits pontificates from a giant toadstool about why God strikes certain people down with strokes; "Darwin," a dopey evolutionist; and "The Celi-bots," chastity-belted automatons that transform into getaway vehicles whenever they are at risk of forsaking their carnal treasure.

Oh, and Hillary Clinton makes a cameo as an ogre who wants to kill gay stem cells.

Paging Norma Desmond . . .

Cindy3  "Peace Mom" and resident lunatic, Cindy Sheehan, proves why it is ultimately useless for any politician to deal with her.

Cindy Sheehan, the so-called "peace mom" on a crusade to end U.S. involvement in the Iraq war, is publicly blasting Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., for her continued support of the ongoing conflict.

"I think she is a political animal who believes she has to be a war hawk to keep up with the big boys," Sheehan writes in an open letter. "I would love to support Hillary for president if she would come out against the travesty in Iraq. But I don't think she can speak out against the occupation, because she supports it. I will not make the mistake of supporting another pro-war Democrat for president again: As I won't support a pro-war Republican."

Earlier this morning, Mother Sheehan accused U.S. Air Force Reserve forces of "hostile action" against the "sovereign airspace" of Hurricane Wilma. Responding to claims by Department of Defense spokesman, Lawrence DeRita, that the aircraft was engaged in meteorological reconnaissance, Sheehan released a blistering statement:

Once again the Bush administration has used the pretext of humanitarian disaster to advance its imperialist, neo-con agenda into the furthest reaches of the Carribbean. My son Casey did not die so Zionist forces within government might countenance war with the great statesman, Fidel Castro, by sending military units perilously close to the worker's paradise of Cuba.

Ms. Sheehan's twenty spokespeople, Jesse Jackson, and an underutilized therapist could not be reached for comment.

Rudy Alert


Hizzoner's flirtations with a presidential run have now been elevated to grope status.

You think this might have something to do with it?:

In a new Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) would lose to both Rudy Giuliani (50-39%) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) (49-38%) (release).  [HT: Hotline's Last Call!]
