At least we found out with the Obama landslide victory that most Americans understand medical science that homosexuality is natural and normal. Only ignorant idiots believe otherwise, but it does not matter because they are obviously out of touch with American culture. See election results for proof and btw, Bush lost the popular vote and stole a National election. He was also the dumbest President ever and he failed to protect America which can be seen by history of 911 on his watch!

How nice that Obama helped his rich, gay friend get a job.
Now how about doing something for the other 99.99% of the gay people in this country?

This is a condescending attempt by Obama to appear to be doing something meaningful. When it comes to foreign policy appointments I can think of few as meaningless as this one. Like who really cares who the US Ambassador to NZ and Samoa is?

I like gay people. My hairstylist is gay, my manicurist is gay, my masseuse is gay, my dog is gay. Gay is the new black.

Oh Obama has helped plenty of his rich, straight friends too. I thought that was rather obvious? Does the name Gates ring a bell?

Really now? And where do little New Zealanders and Samoans come from? Perhaps you think they go abroad, swipe babies from HOLY CHRISTIAN LANDS as leave little Polynesian tiki demons in their place as changelings.

Not really much of a landslide when you take that Obama Phallus out of your mouth, now is it?
Maybe his friends over at ACORN helped him out too.

As smart as he is he could be. Gay males are smarter than hetero males.
