President Barack Obama is an intolerant, hateful, bigoted homophobe. This can be empirically proved. Obama picked former Dean of Harvard Law School Elena Kagan to be Solicitor General. She’s on his “short list” of potential nominees to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. When CBS blogged about the possibility of a lesbian being on the Supreme Court, an “unnamed official” from the White House denied Kagan was a lesbian. Case closed.
Only in the America of 2010 would there be such outrage aimed at the Obama Administration over this story. Doesn’t matter that Obama nominated her for Solicitor General. Doesn’t matter that she’s seriously being considered for the Supreme Court. All that matters is playing the same tired, old political baseball.
If someone actually states on the record that Elena Kagan is a lesbian, she cannot possibly win a nomination battle, so the White House can’t come out and say she’s a lesbian. Since the White House can’t say Kagan is a lesbian, the LGBT community is furious at the White House. Does this make any freakin’ sense at all?
