Bill de Blasio Met The Drag Queens Last Night

Categories: Politics

Last night at the Cutting Room, Cynthia Nixon and Alan Cumming hosted a rousing event for mayoral wannabe Bill de Blasio, whose liberal stance and "We want our city back!" slogan have become pretty irresistible in the face of our Mary Poppins state.

In fact, I appeared in a skit with Unitard's Nora Burns and Mike Albo in which I revealed that, despite his pro-gay views, de Blasio is shockingly straight, but we shouldn't let that get out or it could ruin his career!

What The Cool Kids Are Saying About Anthony Weiner

Categories: Politics

You hear a lot of buzzing about Anthony Weiner's possible return to the game--some pro, some horrified--but I have to admit I'm quite OK with it.

Yes, sexting his noodle was indiscreet and trying to cover it up the whole thing was wrong, but by now Weiner's certainly been repentant enough, and besides, it was hardly a horrible crime in the first place.

But others are being harder on the guy, if not for the expected reasons.

George W. Bush was all set to go and torture Switzerland with his views when several human rights groups spoke up, asking for him to be arrested and investigated on grounds that he propagated torture.

No, not with his mispronunciations.

They mean with his waterboarding tactics, for one thing.

LGBT Protest Against Christine Quinn This Sunday

Categories: Politics

Protestors say she started as an activist and an ally, but she's devolved into a puppet for Bloomberg. So they're gathering this Sunday at 11:15 AM outside the Mandarin Oriental to raise an LGBT ruckus and try to snip her strings. Quinn, they argue, is no longer a friend to the community, even if she's still a lesbian herself. She's the devil! And the front runner!

Former Vice President Dick Cheney had an eloquent response to the antics of unpredictable North Korean leader Kim Jong Un when Cheney addressed Republican leaders recently.

Said he: "We're in deep doo-doo."

OK, folks, I guess we just lost.

Kidding. I actually admire his colloquialism, and besides, someone who was there said Cheney spoke clearly and lucidly.

George Bush Senior: I'm Hurting For My Son

Categories: Politics

CNN got ahold of the updated book All The Best, George Bush: My Life in Letters and Other Writing, and it reveals lots of pain and suffering Bush felt on behalf of his beloved son, the 43rd President, George W. Bush.

"My heart went out to him" after Hurricane Katrina, writes dad.

"Here is a guy who cares deeply. Who wants every possible resource of the federal government brought in to bear to help people, yet he is being roundly accused of not giving a damn...

"The critics do not know what is in 43's heart, how deeply he feels about the hurt, the anguish, the losses affecting so many people, most of them poor."

Gay Criticism Of Chuck Hagel Keeps A-Coming

Categories: Politics

220px-Chuck_Hagel_official_photo.jpg
President Obama's nomination of former U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense has been controversial, partly because of Hagel's icky gay-related remarks in 1998, not to mention his bad record on LGBT issues.

Here are some statements that have come forth on the issue:


Garden State Equality Chair and CEO Steven Goldstein: "We love our president and so many of us at Garden State Equality worked hard for his reelection. But his nomination of Chuck Hagel is extraordinarily insensitive. It's hard to believe there's not another person on earth who doesn't have Hagel's credentials but who isn't as offensive. The nomination is puzzling at best and stunning at worst. Frankly we hope Republicans and fair-minded Democrats hold firm in keeping Hagel's feet to the fire. The overwhelming burden of proof is on Hagel, not on the U.S. Senate, to convince the nation he is a changed leader. He can start by announcing his support for open service for transgender people in the military, whom the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell did not cover."

Chris Christie Explains His Extreme Actions

Categories: Politics

Just recently, New Jersey governor Chris Christie went vocally ballistic on fellow Republican John Boehner for delaying a vote on the multi-billion-dollar package to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Christie and New York Governor Cuomo released a statement saying, "When American citizens are in need, we come to their aid. The tradition was abandoned in the House last night." The Jersey gov went so far as to call the delay "disappointing and disgusting".

Well, Christie was right on the money with that--his extremism got results--and now he steps forward to further illuminate his actions.

In the linked article, Christie says he tried to call Boehner four times to find out what was happening with this issue, but he didn't get a return call.
