Operation GAOS Begins:
Man Your Battle Stations!

Good morning.   I am addressing the gay troops of America from the command center of the not-so-vast gay right wing conspiracy.   As of this hour, I am taking command of a political and strategeric operation to be known as “Operation GAOS (Gay Americans Obstructing Socialism)”.

OpGay is of course is an offshoot (and unaffiliated effort) of the widely successful “Operation Chaos” launched earlier this year by Rush Limbaugh.  OpChaos helped lengthen the duration of the Democrat Presidential primary and allowed significant issues to surface surrounding the questionable associations and lack of experience of the Democrat nominee, Barack Obama.

OpGay’s primary mission is as follows:  To splinter away from Senator Obama one of the most loyal, trusted and repeatedly duped constituency of the Democrat Party:   THE GAYS.  After all, there is bound to be a “gay political story of 2008” — there always is.  I’d rather be pro-active this time!

So this morning, I am pleased to announce our first mission from the OpGay CentCom:   To assist in the selection of former US Senator Sam Nunn as the 2008 Democratic Vice Presidential nominee.   Why, you may ask? 

In my preparation for this first OpGay command order — I did some research beginning with a well-known gay activist — Wayne Besen.   Wayne’s email reply to me was all I needed to know. 

If Obama picks Nunn as his running mate, it will cause widespread disillusionment with gay Democrats and Independents.  It is crucial to remember that supporters are more pro-Obama than anti-McCain.  Choosing Nunn diminishes this palpable excitement and looks like politics as usual – opening a door for McCain to increase his share of the GLBT vote.  If Obama picks Nunn, while at the same time McCain picks a moderate VP candidate, I estimate that the gay vote for McCain will hover between 35-40%. It is key that Obama avoid falling into this trap.  If McCain picks a Huckabee/Romney type, however, it would neutralize this advantage.”

Thank you, Wayne!   But wait, there’s more!   From our little friend over at Blogactive, I note his perspective on Nunn a couple weeks ago:  (Sorry, no links to Blogactive, I don’t want any of my traffic going over there to bump up his numbers).

I’m going to stay as positive as I can and just assume that there is no way Sen. Obama will pick a man with this record [Nunn]. Our community has some of the most talented and best working at the DNC and on the Obama campaign (even though I do drive them a little crazy now and then) and I am confident they are representing our concerns directly to Senator Obama.

We shall see, won’t we!

Anyway, just as I presumed — Obama-Nunn 2008 is a non-starter with the gays.  There is even a website from the gays terrified of the prospect.

So let’s make it happen given that Obama is making this election all about Identity Politics anyway.  How better to demoralize a key Democrat voting bloc then nominate THE ONE person they all despise because he pressured President Clinton to put the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” regulations into statute!   Obama-Nunn ’08!

OpGay Commandos — your first mission is to get the word out to friends and family to help support Sam Nunn’s nomination prospects.  THIS WEEK, everyone should call the Obama For President HQ and express their STRONG SUPPORT for Senator Sam Nunn for Vice President.    CALL NOW:  (866) 675-2008.

In the coming weeks, OpGay will have more missions and your CIC at OpGay CentCom is open to more creative suggestions.

-GayPatriot, Commander In Chief – Operation GAOS



  1. On the blackberry so forgive if I’m more disjoined than usual.

    Speaking as the token straight, I think it needs to be gaos. I see ‘gay-os’ and my first thought is breakfast ceral.

  2. “Sorry, no links to Blogactive, I don’t want any of my traffic going over there to bump up his numbers).”

    Gee, V the K called me petty because I don’t want buy an attack liberals book and give my money to the author.

    You say that some gays are terrified of an Obama-Nunn, seems to me you’re the one terrified enough to commit suicide over it and try to lead others to go with you. Must be hard to breath with all the Republican shit covering your nose.

  3. How about Operation Cockup

    Comment by Vince P — August 4, 2008 @ 9:06 am - August 4, 2008

  4. Actually, I said Dave was stupid and petty for pre-judging an extensively researched and footnoted book about the shared roots of fascism and progressivism as an “attack liberals” book without bothering to read it.

    And I stand by that. The truth must really sting if it’s still bothering poor widdow Davie.

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I’ve decided that given the complete worthlessness of either big party candidate this year… plus my misfortune of living in a blue state where my legitimate vote would just be canceled out by corrupt progressive voter fraud anyway… my vote for president has never been more worthless than in this election. Therefore, I’m thinking of voting for Cynthia McKinney… a worthless vote for a worthless person.

  5. Bruce, sign me up as part of Operation GAOS (Gay Americans Obstructing Socialism).

    Hope you like the “adjusted” moniker in keeping with Livewire’s comment. Just because we are gays doesn’t mean we should discriminate against straights. (I can just see Dave’s, Kevin’s, Good Riddance’s and other libtards’ heads just exploding at that last sentence.)

    However, one teeny little detail – even if snObama picks Sam Nunn, the MSM will do everything they can to whitewash the Georgia senator’s DADT history in order to make “The Messiah” the new POTUS. They will instead focus on his history in the Senate, his background etc. Sort of like the DNC’s proposed tribute to Teddy Kennedy at this year’s convention – everything but Chappaquidick. (Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.)

    However, the best defense is a good offense, so I’ve already called the Snob’s office and asked for Sam Nunn – “for the good of all.” (I almost threw up in my mouth on that part but managed to force out that phrase.)

    Let’s roll.

  6. PS – Someone should call Rush’s show and explain Operation GAOS so we can reach a wider audience. Maybe if some other conservatives call the Snob’s office with the same message, we can get ‘er done faster.

  7. Thanks for the comments and action already, commandos! We will hereby rename as Operation GAOS.

    And comment #2 is proof enough that the nerve I hit is the right one.

    Obama-Nunn ’08!

    Comment by GayPatriot — August 4, 2008 @ 11:05 am - August 4, 2008

  8. #2: “…seems to me you’re the one terrified enough to commit suicide over it and try to lead others to go with you. Must be hard to breath with all the Republican shit covering your nose.”

    Well, that confirms it. Dave is clearly an enchanting phrase-maker from the moment he gets out of bed in the morning. Since Dave himself has likened “Obama-Nunn” to committing suicide, then it’s clearly a perfect plan. I’m in. Private Sean A reporting for duty, Sir.

    By the way, sorry to go off topic, Bruce, but this morning the Wall Street Journal has a piece about what makes a profit a “windfall profit.” Considering that Obama plans to tax such profits made by oil companies, it occurs to me that going from being a civil servant paying off student loans to a bestselling author earning 3-4 million bucks a year could certainly be considered a “windfall” pursuant to Obama’s definition, so how about we take some of his and Michelle’s money, huh? And let’s not neglect those two committed, life-long civil servants Bill and Hillary either–from a government salary to a net worth of $110 million in just 7 years? Wow. It seems to me that about 95 or 100 million should be taken right off the top to help “the common good.”

    Comment by Sean A — August 4, 2008 @ 11:10 am - August 4, 2008

  9. One more thing, there’s no reason for us to be concerned about people like Dave being against Operation Gaos. If we’ve learned anything, we can be assured that Dave supports the troops, even if he doesn’t support the mission. Thanks for your support, Dave!

    Comment by Sean A — August 4, 2008 @ 11:17 am - August 4, 2008

  10. Operation Gayos? That should open up a wide crack in the race.

    In commemoration of Uhbama’s energy policy, the McCain campaign is passing out tire gauges. Much as I despise John McCain, I admire the way his campaign advisers have come up with a way to make fun of Uhbama while making the Obamites look whiny and petulant when they complain about it.

    Meanwhile, Obama’s campaign plane is fitted with La-Z-Boy recliners. How appropriate.

    Comment by V the K — August 4, 2008 @ 11:21 am - August 4, 2008

  11. McCain’s ads highlighting the celebrity of Obama are awesome.

    Even better is the hyperventilation of the media.

    They are exceeding all bounds even the ones they obliterated in 04 with the phony national guard story.

    Comment by Vince P — August 4, 2008 @ 11:34 am - August 4, 2008

  12. #10 – V, it’s also part of the RNC’s “birthday present” to the snObama, whose birth on this date in the East (Chicago neighborhood) was predicted by the Three Wise Children (JJ, Thelma and Michael) in the projects:

    “And lo, Ned the Wino appeared before the amazed Children of James and Florida Evans, and spoke the truth thusly:

    ” ‘Chillun, they’s a baby born here in the projects!’

    “And Michael the Youngest spoke forth:

    ” ‘Say what?’

    “And Ned the Wino responded:

    ” ‘Yes, Lord! I seen him myself. A wonder to behold!’

    “And Thelma the Sista spoke out:

    ” ‘I bet he’s gonna go far out!’

    “And Ned the Wino’s face appeared raptured as though he had emptied a full bottle of Muscatel, and said:

    ” ‘For sure, Sista Evans! He will be the Obamessiah to bring us hope and change!’

    “And JJ the Eldest spoke the words that confirmed that this was the truth:

    ” ‘DY-NO-MITE!’ ”

    (Apologies to Norman Lear and the creators of “Good Times.”)

  13. I’m gonna sit this one out but I wanted to make a sort-of-related comment.

    Is it just me, or is there a new energy and enthusiasm for exposing and stopping the Messiah? It is feeling to me like 2004 all over again. Up to July or so (Dem convention), Kerry was riding high. A lot of smart center-right people could see through him – what a dangerously stupid, narcissistic, and phony person he was – but felt despondent about stopping him and anyway, could not muster enthusiasm for Bush. Something shifted that August. The Swift Vets got their case out there, Zell Miller told the truth about Kerry at the Dem convention, and so forth. A new energy lifted the entire center-right as we realized that Kerry could be and must be stopped. The arguments against Kerry got dramatically stronger. I don’t mean shriller; I mean stronger on substance, on facts and moral principle, and in energy / confidence. People got stoked about stopping Kerry, and he was stopped. Is a similar revolt-of-common-sense gathering steam against the Messiah? (with the key drivers probably being (1) his visible stupidity and arrogance, and (2) gas prices / the House “oil revolt”) Could history repeat itself?

  14. (sorry, typo, “ell Miller told the truth about Kerry at the Republican convention…”)

    Comment by ILoveCapitalism — August 4, 2008 @ 1:03 pm - August 4, 2008

  15. I mean, take stuff like this… Obama on Your Shoulder. The anti-O movement is getting fun… and it’s the truth (that the Messiah has no clothes) that makes it fun.

  16. Aargh, I’m blowing it today. Try this as the link:

  17. You say that some gays are terrified of an Obama-Nunn, seems to me you’re the one terrified enough to commit suicide over it and try to lead others to go with you.

    I see the DNC/Obama organization has dropped all hints of subtlety and is now flat-out telling gays that voting for McCain or working against Obama means that gays will be slaughtered.

    Really, Dave. Is this the best that you and your fellow Democrat gays can do? We’re still waiting for the “internment camps” that you and yours insisted had already been built in 2004. Why can’t your masters ever come up with any reason for why we should support them rather than telling obvious falsehoods about how much Republicans want us dead?

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — August 4, 2008 @ 1:41 pm - August 4, 2008

  18. Pete — I totally forgot that today is Obamamas… the most wonderful time of year. We should be singing Obamamas carols with our families a multi-cultural group of community activists. Later, we can hang tire gauges from the Obamamas tree and open our brightly wrapped packages of Hope and Change… which of course will turn out to be empty, but will nevertheless remind us of the True Meaning of Obamamas.

    Comment by V the K — August 4, 2008 @ 2:31 pm - August 4, 2008

  19. From NDT’s link:

    Rogers indicated that his efforts are part of a battle against the Bush administration and America’s right wing. “Ultimately, on November 2, I believe that our country is making a decision about good and evil,” Rogers said. “If Bush is elected, I’m leaving the country.”

    Umm… so did he? Anyone know?

  23. I just read thru the links over at that Bruce linked in his post. It’s infuriating to me whenever I read these self-centered, self-righteous sites. If it’s not all-about-me and my sexuality and my victimhood, then what is is all about? HOW ABOUT BEING AMERICAN AND FREE AND PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY!!!

    Or RamaHanaKwanzamas which is just as silly.

  29. I thought homocons were for the repeal of DADT? Sam Nunn led the charge of the minority Democrats to pass it. Boy, you all must have very short memories (and I know you’re at least as old as me). I already said on a different web site that if Obama chooses Sam Nunn as a running mate, I won’t vote for Obama.

    I have a very long memory and Sam Nunn is not remembered fondly, but don’t expect me to run into the arms of the anti-gay Republicans if Obama chooses Sam Nunn as his running mate.

    We know that Democrats are not good, but we are making progress on this side. Your side seems to be stepping up its anti-gay stance, so there doesn’t seem to be any reason for gay Democrats to flock to the anti-gay Republicans in spite of the Nunn factor.

  31. #29 – A perfect example of a “self-hating American.” Or as the DNC likes to refer to him, “lockbox votes.”

    How many times are these libtards going to be given the finger by the Dhimmicrats before they figure it out?

    Comment by Peter Hughes — August 5, 2008 @ 4:57 pm - August 5, 2008

  32. So much for true patriotism. Part of patriotism is holding to your beliefs and goals (which many of you claim here). Seems to me that actively working to nominate a candidate by deceptive means doesn’t strike me as a patriotic; it strikes me as desperation and deceit meaning you lack any clear moral guidance. Win at any cost is more in the tradition of Mussolini, Hitler, Chavez, etc.

    Yeah, you can’t really debate the real qualities of the candidates, discuss their positive and negative attributes…..just continue with name-calling as if that somehow is real political discourse. reading the mores of political discourse is about on par with watching the old Monty Python Arguement sketch.

    Comment by Kevin — August 5, 2008 @ 8:57 pm - August 5, 2008

  33. To debate, Kevin, requres both folks to be grounded in reality.

    This excludes you.

    I’ve been a registered Democrat for years, trying to use my vote to move the party back to sanity.

    Since that never seems to work, I usually end up voting for the Rs.

    Comment by The Livewire — August 5, 2008 @ 9:13 pm - August 5, 2008

  34. 33: I love it when people can’t refute a statement with anything logical, so they pull tidbits like this out of their hat. This is the justification you use for name-calling You’re not the same guy who once was questioned Bush at a press conference and turned out to be a male prostitute, cause your logic is about the same as his.

    17: Wow, still referencing that single article from 4 years ago that quoted one person as if it was a statement of fact by all liberal gays. change the record man.

    Comment by Kevin — August 6, 2008 @ 5:45 am - August 6, 2008

  35. Sorry Kevin, you’re not my type.

    Comment by The Livewire — August 6, 2008 @ 6:16 am - August 6, 2008

  36. Kevin’s debate strategy: Spew complete nonsense and then whine when people refuse to treat your nonsense as worthy of debate.

    Comment by V the K — August 6, 2008 @ 6:54 am - August 6, 2008

  37. #34: Part one – the man’s name was Jeff Gannon. He just happened to be the one reporter in the WH press pool who asked pointed questions of the Dhimmicrats while others like Helen Thomas and David Gregory were carrying their water and echoing DNC talking points.

    And if you are so insulted that he was a “male prostitute” (which is a lie), then you should really be hoppin’ mad at Mass. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Gay), whose live-in lover ran a call boy ring out of his DC residence.

    Part two – This “change the record” mantra is rich coming from someone who has levelled the same accusations at the Bush Administration for almost 8 years without deviation. Pot, meet kettle.

    SNAP – you are dismissed.

    Comment by Peter Hughes — August 6, 2008 @ 11:40 am - August 6, 2008

  38. 17: Wow, still referencing that single article from 4 years ago that quoted one person as if it was a statement of fact by all liberal gays. change the record man.

    Considering you’ve made it clear that you agree with Rogers, Kevin, why should I?

    This is the classic Obama defense; condemn racist statements, but when confronted with racist statements made by his wife, his supporters, and the “spiritual mentor” to whom he claims to owe all his beliefs and morality, attack the person who brought them up.

    The weakness of liberal leftists like Kevin and Obama is that they cannot condemn the behavior of their fellow liberal leftists because doing so would expose them to the same sort of hate they fling at others. To that end, given Kevin’s past history of claiming that Republicans are operating death camps for gays, until he repudiates his own statement and that of Rogers’s, he shall be held accountable for both.
