Pres. Bush Sr. promised a kinder gentler nation.
Pres. Obama is giving us a gayer queerer nation.
Maybe Obama will remove the eagle as out national symbol and replace it with a butterfly.
from a Yahoo news story:
In March, Obama named an open lesbian, Emily Hewitt, to be the chief judge of the federal Court of Claims, but judges on that special court do not have lifetime tenure. He also nominated another lesbian, Maria Demeo, to serve as a D.C. Superior Court judge.
In all, Obama has made about three dozen appointments of openly gay or lesbian people below the Cabinet level, according to Dison, including Nancy Sutley, head of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and John Berry, director of the Office of Personnel Management.
