I'm quoted in the piece, and the to-be-expected bonkers comments make for a great antidote to antiquated notions that gay men are somehow smarter and funnier than straight men.
P.S. Just because there seems to be a great percentage of gay men who are for Hillary (or who like The Golden Girls reruns or enjoy anal sex or go to Madonna concerts), it shouldn't threaten you so much if you're not one of those guys. No pressure!
As many Democrats seek a way to come together in order to defeat (probably) Donald Trump, it's unfortunate that Bernie Sanders's wife, Jane, has appeared on FOX News in order to say she wishes the FBI would speed up its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server.
Her exact quote:
We want to let [the investigation] go through without politicizing it, and then we’ll find out what the situation is. And that’s how we still feel. I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along. [Laughs] But, other than that ...
It sounds like she's hoping against hope that Hillary will be formally accused of wrongdoing, be embarrassed by a scolding, or even be charged.
It's a far cry from one of Bernie's finest moments in his campaign, a moment that not only helped Hillary but, I would argue, helped his own prospects:
I think this cycle is unique on the Democratic side (and something more than unique on the Republican side!) in that the usual coming home of Democrats is complicated by the fact that Sen. & Dr. Sanders are not Democrats, but Independents. Most of their supporters are Democrats who prefer him to Hillary, but will vote for her in a pinch. But there is a higher-than-usual (and louder-than-usual) percentage of voters in the Sanders camp who will simply never vote for Hillary—and there's no sense in fretting over them coming home because home is not the Democratic Party.
Let the #NeverHillary crowd crow and let them have their satisfaction at denying her their votes, because they were never going to vote for her anyway.
I am hopeful that more people in this country see Hillary Clinton as a good choice to run the U.S. over Donald Trump, who seems not only maniacally ego-driven (and yet Hillary is often tarred with that insult), but frighteningly unpredictable. It doesn't boggle my mind that someone might dislike or mistrust Hillary, but it does boggle my mind that anyone who isn't a dyed-in-the-wool right-winger could see Trump as a safer bet.
I would rather this young woman reconsider her support of Ted Cruz over his lack of foreign-policy experience, his absence of deep thought, his push for a theocracy and/or his abhorrent views on LGBT people, but if embarrassingly referring to a basketball hoop as a ring is what it takes, so be it.
