He’s only been in power long enough to redo the whole spa area of the White House and install a new ice machine on floor 2 but the gays are already turning on Jackie O, as evidenced by this cover for gay (and rather snoreworthy, if we’re going to be honest about it) magazine The Advocate. And for those who don’t remember, our new nickname for Mr. President is an amalgam of Jackie Brown, Obama and the first lady in the White House. All in a good way.
Never mind that he made that frankly rather amazing speech to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (no ‘u’ in ‘colored’ as it’s America and they’re very thrifty with them ‘u’s), apparently things aren’t moving fast enough for the gays.
They want gays in the military (well, we have had gays in the military in the UK for ten years now and they do even have them in places like Argentina, so it has been quite a wait…), gay marriage, even though he’s already said that will be strictly on a state-by-state basis and, well, tons of other stuff. Oh, and poppers. And they want it NOW!
Terms like ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ and ‘Hold your fricking horses one cotton pickin’ moment’ come to mind. But we suppose keeping the pressure on is always a good thing.
