Hoping for Audacity

Bill Maher's comic genius is, as all comic genius, built on serious reality. On his commentary he called for the best parts of Obama's policy to be wedded with more of W's damn the torpedoes approach. "I voted for the audacity of hope, right now I am hoping for a bit more audacity.

Move On and the DNC have stopped calling me asking for money. It's probably because I keep telling them it's not happening until promises to the LGBT community start being fulfilled. The last DNC fund raiser said, "I understand, you have an agenda."

I responded, "I thought it was OUR agenda."

David Mixner Longtime LGBT Rights advocate and former Clinton Administration advisor says on his blog:

"I will not attend a fundraiser for the National Democratic Party in Washington next week when the current administration is responsible for these kind of actions. How will they ever take us seriously if we keep forking out money while they harm us. For now on, my money is going to battles within the community such as the fight in Maine or the March on Washington! I am so tired of being told by Democratic operatives to 'suck it up' because so many other profound issues are at stake. It is as if our fight for our freedom is single-handedly responsible for the fate of all other issues. Bullshit. Maybe, just maybe, it is time for others to 'suck it up' for us and finally, without conditions, join our fight for our freedom!"
