After last week, I’m really GLAAD to have this opportunity to change the subject.
And that opportunity was presented by what I guess are the monthly GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards, this time in Los Angeles. Sort of ironic that they were held the same week as the latest Islamic Extremist (am I allowed to say that anymore?) bombing; as we all know how tolerant the “religion of pieces” is of homosexuality.
Anyway, guess who was there? To accept an award. Did you guess former President Bill Clinton?
Me neither. If I had to guess which Clinton was the recipient of GLAAD's first ever Advocate for Change award, I sure wouldn’t have gone with Bill as my first choice. Or even my second. In fact, if I had to guess who won GLAAD’s first “Advocate for Change” award, I would have guessed Big Guy. Who’s done more to CHANGE things than he has?
Anyway, for some reason they decided to give the award to Bill instead, the man who invented “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Here he is getting ready to accept his award from Charlize Theron, who was, if I may say, smokin’ hot:
And he wasn’t the only Clinton there:
I guess it was a natural for Bill though: Slick Willy being one of the few 110% heterosexual horn-dogs attending an event that was packed with a bevy of Hollywood beauties who love to support these causes.
I’m not sure how often they have these awards, butt Madonna just attended one in New York in March. She went as a “boy scout” to present last month’s GLAAD Media award to Anderson Cooper:
Madonna said at the time she was protesting the Boy Scouts ban on gay scouts and scout leaders, declaring they should “change their stupid rule.” I know the ban doesn’t seem fair to Madge, butt I wonder if she knows the Boy Scouts don’t allow girls to join either? Or 55 year old women for that matter? And by the way, that’s a not a Boy Scout uniform, Madge; it’s a Cub Scout’s. Kids that age shouldn’t even have to know about “gender choices” yet.
"I don't know about you, but I can't take this sh-- anymore," she said. "That is why I want to start a revolution. Are you with me? It's 2013, people. We live in America -- land of the free, home of the brave -- that's a question, not a statement."
For sure Madge, and Big Guy is with you 100% on that. He can’t take this sh-- anymore either. He wants to start his own revolution too, are you with him? Have you got his back?
Before I address Madge’s concern, I do need to do a little fashion policing.There are two ways to wear things. Take a fedora for example; the right way on the left and the wrong way on the right:
If you don’t want to look like a dork, you have to wear a hat, especially a fedora, with a certain panache, a slight tilt to the side. Like Leonard Cohen demonstrates:
I would think Slick Willie, of all people, would know that.
Also, say you’re posing with a Boy Scout; there’s a proper and improper way to do that too.
Anderson falls in the latter camp.
Butt getting back to Madonna’s question: – “land of the free, home of the brave?” To answer that, I refer you to that titan of the Democrat party, John Edwards. As he famously said, there are two Americas.
One America is full of sheeple; the cowed, the fearful, the non-brave:
And one is filled with the free and the brave:
Unfortunately, America #2 always expects America #1 to make sure that they, too, can continue to enjoy the land of the free and the home of the brave without ever having to lift a finger to make it so. All the while complaining about what America #1 has to do to make it so for America #2. Odd, to say the least.
