standup routine at the and so we thought it worthy of a post. We review the discussed the joke at length and concluded that at best mimics his policy postions in office - unoriginal, bland and totally forgettable by the time the Stonewallers worked their way out the auditorium. We respectfully disagree with IPOPA's analogy comparing the AIDS virus to lynching - One is a disease, the other a violent act against a specific individual. We do think Indy Democrat probably comes closest to a clear-headed conclusion.
What strikes us as ironic is how ultra-sensitive it appears the Stonewall Democrats are when something insults their fragile sensitivies as this same group of individuals have no problem hurling the words "homophobe, bigot and hateful" to anyone who happens to disagree with their stance. And for the record one of us just happens to be gay so don't even go there.
Our advice to the Stonewallers is that they need to understand that when one integrates thier race, gender or sexual orientation within a platform one invites dissention. When one places that political platform in the public square they invite dissention. And when one can't take public criticism unintentional, serious or otherwise one invites a snarky post like this.
Over the years the gay rights movement has worked valiently to move the AIDS issue into the mainstream. They have succeeded, or at least we thought so until now. We would suggest that the Stonewallers are better served working out their internal differences which require much more effort than it does to walk out in a hissyfit on a sitting U.S. Senator. In our opinion Evan's only insult that night was to the struggling comedians everywhere who are just trying to make a living.
