The First “Gay Presidential Debate”…Nope, Not a Joke!

Oh lord…. this must be sheer heaven for the “Special Rights” crowd of the Gay Left.   Their own debate!   Wooooo hoooooo.

 For the first time the leading candidates for the presidency will hold a televised debate devoted solely to LGBT issues. The one-hour event will be held on August 9 and broadcast on gay network LOGO at 9:00 pm ET (6:00 pm ET) and through live streaming video at

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards have confirmed they will participate. Several other Democratic candidates also may join the debate.  The debate will be conducted with a live audience in Los Angeles.  On the panel questioning the two Democrats will be Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese and singer Melissa Etheridge.

The debate was put together by LOGO and HRC.  “In the 2008 presidential election, issues of concern to the LGBT community have already been at the forefront of the national conversation,” said Solmonese.

After all, how better to further advance the cause of self-victimization then to have all of the Democrats pander to you for one whole night? I can’t wait to watch it and see the endless pleas for gay people’s money flowing from the Dem candidates, especially Hillary whose husband codified two of the most anti-gay Federal mandates in our lifetime.

I would bet that Joe Solomonese and Melissa Etheridge (LOL!!!) will not ask any questions about Islamists condemning gays and lesbians to death, and Iran hanging gay youth.   Betcha!

So, let the jokes begin on this self-created parody….

From The CornerL is Lesbian. G is Gay. B is Bisexual. T is transgender.  What, pray tell, are the public policy aspects of bisexuality that require a debate at the presidential level? Oh, man, I hope there are some bisexual questions from the audience.

My addition:  Why isn’t Senatress Lucy Grah-amnesty (R-SC) invited?  She gave the best hissy fit the Senate had ever seen a couple weeks ago, after all.

UPDATE (from Dan): Since I’m in LA, I have applied for press credentials to attend (having done so even before Bruce posted this piece). Let’s see if they’re open to having a gay conservative blogger attend. Even better, let’s see if they’ll have WiFi so I can blog it live.

Democrats Begin To Master The “Congress Of Corruption”

Under Empress Nancy’s reign, the “culture of corruption” has become more like the “Congress of Corruption.”

Exhibit A – US Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA). ‘Nuf said.

Exhibit B – US Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA)

Exhibit C – US Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV)

Mollohan Earmarks Nearby Land
Paul Singer, Roll Call Staff, June 28, 2007

A $1 million earmark request by Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.) would allow the Interior Department to expand a wilderness area neighboring properties the Congressman owns.

Exhibit D – The Empress Pelosi (D-CA) herself!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has disclosed that she holds stock valued at up to $15,000 in Alcatel-Lucent (formerly Alcatel SA), a company with extensive investments in Iran and Sudan — nations that sponsor terrorism.

The disclosure of Pelosi’s holdings comes at the same time that legislation is making its way through the California legislature barring state pension fund managers from investing in companies, like Alcatel-Lucent, that do business with “terror-friendly” nations.

My, my, my.  How hollow these words now ring

“The Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history.”

I guess (not my) Speaker Pelosi’s “out clause” in her promise was the word “intend.”  No wonder the Congress of Corruption has a lower approval rating that the President.
