As President-elect Barack Obama is being deified, a comic strip published today in the San Diego Union Tribune suggests an explanation for his troubling selection of a prominent anti-gay pastor to deliver the inaugural invocation, and the noticable lack of Gays in any prominent positions in his administration.
Does Obama have unresolved gay issues?
He is an incredibly good-looking man. Muscular. Smooth chested. Brilliant eyes. Those are ingredients for a gay, porno star.
The comic strip is La Cucaracha.
One of the comic characters sends a congratulatory, cell-phone message to Obama.
"And, u don't have 2 explain y us got dat anti-gay pastor Rick Warren blessifying at ur inaug to ME."
"Oh, really," the president-elect responds.
"It diffuses the talk about your 'orientation'," the comic character says in his messaging.
"Oh, come on!," Obama responds in the comic strip.
"Maybe ease up on the rock hard abd, stud," the comic character concludes.
Sometimes comic strip are more real than reality.
If - and only if - Obama does have issues with his sexual orientation (aka a closet case), then he would naturally do whatevery is necessary to diffuse any discussion of sexual orientation, past or present.
He wouldn't appoint a Gay to the Cabinet, or any other major White House position.
And, he wouldn't openly or regularly discuss issues like repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in the military.
Of course, he would make a casual reference to "Gays and Lesbians" in his inaugural, and thereby appease the Gay community.
But, notice that nobody has discussed his sexual orientation (past or present), other than emphasize over and over and over and over, his fatherly role.
To say that the fabulously good-looking law school student never got cruised in college; oh, come on!
