  • Barack Obama's New Trick for Distancing Himself from Gays

    barack-obama-columns-horiz
    There's an impatient crowd of gay folks on President Obama's desk-plate, and it seems he's finally figured out a way to deal with them — one of them, at least…

    Obama announced the nomination of David Huebner, a leader of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), to be ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa.

    Huebner's day job is more lucrative. A Yale Law grad, Huebner heads the China practice and the international disputes practice at the law firm Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, and is currently based in Shanghai.

    Yes, but Shanghai is just a leetle too close to D.C. for Barack Obama's taste, so, New Zealand and Samoa it is. Have fun out there, Mr. Huebner! Come on back to the States when you're legally allowed to marry a man who's legally allowed to be a gay Army officer.

    What's on your calendar for 2094?
