A hilarious message from Melissa Etheridge as posted in The Daily Beast:

Image lifted from Queerstock.com. Love the frightened man coming out of the closet. He probably lives in California and is actually tiptoeing backwards into the closet. He is bejesusly scared.

So California voters got out in droves to elect Obama. Nice! But at the same time they voted against same sex marriage. Not so nice, really but totally unexpected from Obama supporters? Well, not really, Black Jesus is not entirely supportive…

“Barack Obama and Gay Marriage/ Civil Unions:

Although Barack Obama has said that he supports civil unions, he is against gay marriage. In an interview with the Chicago Daily Tribune, Obama said, “I’m a Christian.

Okay, cool I don’t mean to get too personal here but there is a lot I can do with the extra half a million dollars that I will be keeping instead of handing it over to the state of California. Oh, and I am sure Ellen will be a little excited to keep her bazillion bucks that she pays in taxes too. Wow, come to think of it, there are quite a few of us fortunate gay folks that will be having some extra cash this year. What recession? We’re gay! I am sure there will be a little box on the tax forms now… Continue reading
