Obama: The Next B.J. Clinton?

[Politics] The high point for me in the 2008 election was the Barack Obama presidential victory. A victory for change! Yes we can!

The bullshit with the California Constitution was disappointing, of course, but at least we had a new president who recognized the rights of all Americans. And that was enough for me.

It's actually the same feeling I had in 1992. When Bill Clinton was elected, I thought, "At last, here's somebody who will stick up for the rights of all Americans. Even fags like me!" And then he went and botched the whole gays-in-the-military issue, coming up with Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell. And then he fucked up national health care. And then he stuck his cigar in Lewinsky's nether regions. And then he gave the extremist free-market Republicans free reign over the country's economy, and look how well that turned out.

Looks like Obama is set to become another Bill Clinton, having chosen Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren, with his purpose-driven bullshit, to give a prayer at the inauguration. Hooray for Democrats in the White House! Warren is just another of those fuckers who pretend to "hate the sin and love the sinner" all the while spreading vile lies and bullshit about gay and lesbian Americans--especially how we should never have equal marriage rights.

Wow. Great, Obama. I'm so glad, now that you managed to garner the gay and lesbian vote, that you're willing to sacrifice our support even before you take office. Fuck you, Obama. If you ever meant anything you said about equality and hope, get rid of that homophobe Rick Warren before it's too late.

We've been through this before with that egomaniac Clinton, and we're not all that willing to lie down with your boot on our face because of some campaign platitudes you once spewed. Your 52% mandate is not as broad as you think, and my support (among that of other gays and lesbians) may waver. We buy property; we just might decide to vote for false "low taxes"--or for Donald Duck--in 2010.

President-elect Obama, I want to believe in you, even if your misguided advisers consider the fag-and-dyke vote to be expendible. Please don't let us down. I recommend that you keep homophobes like Rick Warren as far away as possible from your inauguration. Frankly, I'm hurt that you would even consider it.

  1. Sorry you feel that way, Brandon.
    Have a donut-

  2. Brandon, your not the only one left out in the cold....

  3. I voted for the guy, too, but did somebody just figure out that Obama is nothing more than a politician? I never expected him to actually keep his promises.

    Give it a few've got more disappointment coming.

  4. Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! (deep breath)

    Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! (can't breath)

    Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! (passes out)

    (Wakes up, dusts self off, remembers reason for passing out) Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

  5. Ah, see how the victims of their own perversions cry when their would-be savior refuses either to normalize their detestable deviance or to save them from themselves. Stop directing your self-loathing at Obama and learn to live with the consequences of your own choices, my friend. While you rail at Obama and others for loving the sinner and hating the sin, you yourself love the sin and hate the sinner. Not much a politician can do to resolve that for you.

  6. Such vile and vitriolic language. Are you sure you're a journalist and not just a foul-mouthed flamer with a license to whine? Don't come down here with your anger, tryin' to prove somethin' to yourself. This gayness of yours is something you'll never understand. And you always fear what you don't understand.

  7. I sense some frustration...I for one am glad Obama recognizes the gay rights issue is a pointless distraction from issues that really matter - the economy, the environment, etc.

    You're griping about whose saying the prayer at the inauguration, meanwhile thousands of people are losing their jobs every week and wondering how they're going to put food on the table.

    Something to consider next time you're sitting by the fire sipping Merlot and bitching about all the injustices under which you have to suffer.

  8. nice picture....
    you might consider an avatar.

  9. totally nice picture....
    you never get any, do you.

  10. I believe that's a pic of Rick Warren without the "hip" goatee ... and you're right, he never gets any.

  11. Obama didn't appoint Warren to his cabinet, he didn't endorse the pastor's candidacy for political office, and he didn't adopt his social or political views. But when the President-elect asked Warren to say a prayer at an inaugural event, you say he sold you and your ilk down the river, and now all hope is lost.

    All that's lacking here is a limp wrist. Silly and emotional arguments like yours are the reasons why most Americans don't take homosexuals and what they say seriously.

    if you aren't sure who it is why was the picture posted?
    are there any adults there we could speak with??

  13. BRAVO Brandon

    While the straights won't like your column, it said EXACTLY what needed to be said, in just the right language.
    All though it's often over used, FUCK says something with the force, no other word can compare.
    So FUCK YOU Obama transition blog, that censors angry gay posts. And FUCK Salt lake City Tribune who ban gay angry members.

    CHANGE WE CAN BELIVE...what's this WE shit?

  14. and FUCK Rick Warren trying to be cute and co-opting homophobia with CHRIST-O_PHOBIA, as a lesbian is GANG RAPED by four assailants.
    Yeah Ricky, you are the G*D DAMN victim!
