I thought it was “A Day Without a Gay” today

Well, the Obama Transition Team doesn't seem to know it is “A Day Without a Gay” today. The AP is reporting that two names not even mentioned previously are up for spots in the Obama adminstration, and guess what? Yes, one is a lesbian and one is a gay man.
President-elect Barack Obama has selected a deputy mayor of Los Angeles to lead the White House Council on Environmental Quality, transition officials said Wednesday. Nancy Sutley is the first prominent member of the gay and lesbian community to earn a senior role in the Democrat's new administration.
AND
The position of interior secretary is still in flux.

Support for John Berry, the director of the National Zoo and a former assistant secretary at the department, was growing, officials said. Gay and lesbian advocacy groups backing Berry, who is gay, were expected to meet with the transition team in Washington on Wednesday.

Oh, Perpetua - you know that the Supreme Central Gay Command (the entity responsible for seeing that the Gay Agenda is distributed to all local Gay Cadres, and ruthlessly enforces our adherence to it) gave a special dispensation to everyone connected with the coming Gay Takeover so that they could work today. They'll boycott the Heterosexist Patriarchal Hegemony on another day to be scheduled later. (My cell's Commissar says that I'll have to make up a boycott day later, since I actually called in sick today because I was sick). ;-)

Hey, BillyD,

Thank you for explaining it. I didn't know.

I'm sorry your are sick today.

How do you like my new comments feature showing up along the side of the page?

Did I tell you the Village Voice included this blog in an article on the Right Wing Blogosphere with a link to "Something about shellfish?"?
