It is no more of an empirical question than whether she is Jewish. We know she is Jewish, and it is a fact simply and rightly put in the public square. If she were to hide her Jewishness, it would seem rightly odd, bizarre, anachronistic, even arguably self-critical or self-loathing. And yet we have been told by many that she is gay … and no one will ask directly if this is true and no one in the administration will tell us definitively.
….then I’m playing this card: IF she is, is she actually filling the homosexual Supreme Court seat left vacant since last year?
Oh come on, you never heard of the David Souter gay talk? Where have you been? In the same crowd of women that pine for Anderson Cooper…. or the Village People? Sheesh.
Again, my big question is why does Obama think that being a lesbian is such a bad thing? His White House indicated as much when Kagan’s name first surfaced after Justice Stevens announced his retirement.
Why is the White House treating lesbian rumors like allegations of vampiric necrophilia? When CBS republished a column repeating the rumor that possible Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is a lesbian, the White House responded furiously. Because lesbians are terrible?
The White House press office blew up. Anita Dunn said: “The fact that they’ve chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010.” Spokesman Ben LaBolt said the column “made false charges.”
Is Obama actually going to use a Supreme Court nominee to advance the cause of the closet (as well as kill any court imposition of marriage equality)? And can we have a clear, factual statement as to the truth? In a free society in the 21st Century, it is not illegitimate to ask. And it is cowardly not to tell.
What are we afraid of, people? And by “people”…. I mean President Obama and his Gay Leftist Lickspittles.
The new Democrat slogan: “Live by Identity Politics…. Die by Identity Politics.”
