A discouraging and dangerous setback.

Wolfowitz at Log Cabin dinner

How bracing it must have been for the assembled worthies at Log Cabin's "Spirit of Lincoln" dinner to hear a Bush administration alum slamming the most pro-gay president in history for his shortcomings on gay issues. I happen to know that the persecution of Anwar Ibrahim began long before the Obama administration. As for the evils of ISIS, does Mr. Wolfowitz take any share of responsibility for aiding its rise? But go ahead, sneering men of privilege, and look for liberal targets of your scorn while your own party does its best to smash the foundations of our republic.

Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day weekend

DC Council Letter to Rep Chaffetz Oct 2015

GLAA is proud to be part of the coalition that lobbied D.C. Councilmembers on this. Thanks to Councilmembers Grosso, Bonds, Allen, Alexander, May, Nadeau, Silverman, and Evans for their signatures and their support. GLAA signed a joint letter with other organizations on the same issue in May. Notorious congressional homophobe Jason Chaffetz is planning to mark up the continuation of the program on Friday.

Joe Biden addresses HRC National Dinner

HRC talks to HRC

Hillary spoke to HRC earlier on Saturday due to her gig on SNL.

Hillary Clinton on SNL

For me, SNL set the standard for funniness four decades ago with a fake car commercial in which a mohel does a briss to show the smoothness of the ride. Hillary's skit as Val the bartender did not approach that level. But she was appealing, good-natured, and self-deprecatory. Well done. And I liked the way Huma Abedin was worked into it. It doesn't hurt Hillary that I can imagine her as my bartender; few of the Republican candidates pass that test.

Live entertainment for a captive audience

My friend Matsimela saw this Thursday afternoon on the NYC subway.

The President speaks on mass shooting in Oregon

The refusal of lawmakers to address the epidemic of gun violence in this country is despicable. This is not new, and it is not the only problem that one of our two major parties refuses to do anything about.
