    "McCarthy added that it’s also time “for President-elect Obama to start acting on the promises he made to the LGBT community during his campaign so that he doesn’t go down in history as another Bill Clinton, a sweet-talking swindler who would throw us under the bus for the sake of political expediency.” And “for LGBT folks to choose their battles wisely, to judge Obama on the content of his policy-making, not on the character of his ministers.”

    Amen. Here’s to humility and equanimity everywhere in America, starting at the top, as we negotiate the fierce rapids of change awaiting us in the New Year."

    Here, here!

    Interesting. I was particularly amused by this:

    "McCarthy added that it’s also time “for President-elect Obama to start acting on the promises he made to the LGBT community during his campaign so that he doesn’t go down in history as another Bill Clinton, a sweet-talking swindler who would throw us under the bus for the sake of political expediency.”

    I met Clinton a number of times, and once was his military escort for a function he attended. I remember being struck by how shifty his eyes were, and my impression was of a man who couldn't be trusted. He certainly was deceitful with the gay community.

    Frank Rich is one of the few voices in the times that is consistently worth listening to. I particularly enjoy the paragraph that has been quoted here a few times.

    Black people become magical negroes. Gay men get relegated to accessories or pets for fat straight girls with no friends or ugly straight men with no sense of style.
