Stephen Colbert asks is Elena Kagan Gay?Author: Jon Martin | Tuesday, May 11th, 2010 |
Tonight on the Colbert Report, Stephen tried to find ways to discredit Elena Kagan. Elena was nominated for a position on the supreme court by president Obama. Her background is squeaky clean and even Republicans don’t have many negative things to say about her. Stephen decides to ask the question he knows he should not ask… is Elena Kagan gay?
Andrew Sullivan seems to be flipping his shit about the issue, he thinks that by nominating a justice that is “in the closet”, Obama will be supporting gay people hiding themselves. I feel like that’s kind of misleading, if anything it might show that being gay isn’t a huge factor in life. No one should care she’s gay, she shouldn’t have to announce it. People should hear it and simply say “Oh I didn’t know that”, then go back to whatever they were doing. Here’s what Andrew had to say:
To put it another way: Is Obama actually going to use a Supreme Court nominee to advance the cause of the closet (as well as kill any court imposition of marriage equality)? And can we have a clear, factual statement as to the truth? In a free society in the 21st Century, it is not illegitimate to ask. And it is cowardly not to tell.
I think it’s a little premature to get mad, she’s only been nominated.. and it’s someone’s own business if they choose to reveal their sexuality. I think Andrew needs to take a chill pill…
Gawker thinks she’s gay too! They have proof. The infamous softball photo. It appeared on the Wall Street Journal.. and the Wall Street Journal are all acting like they don’t know she’s a lesbian. They “claim ignorance” on the lesbian issue, even having published this clearly uber-lesbian softball picture. Its Lesbian hypocrisy at it’s finest.
Only a lesbian could have such good stance. If she were straight she’d probably already be crying because baseball is a man’s game. Just saying. My friend said it’s like “offensive to women” to say only lesbians play softball… I just laughed and was like, “whatever lezzie” *twirl*
