And by the way, Jesus apparently is opposed to a dyke on the Supreme Court. http://act.credoaction.com/pages/antikagan/

Yeah, but Obama picked the wrong dyke.

"that last sentence is confusing and seems to imply that an Obama type person is also a lesbian"

Are you seriously trying to argue that it is not reasonable to use "Obama" and "lesbian" in the same sentence? Do you truly believe most lesbians would NOT be "Obama-type persons?" Come on, we're talking sheer statistics here, not arguing about any individual exceptions that undoubtedly exist. Not debating etiology of this most obvious correlation, either. It just... IS... and you're denouncing it as if it is groundless? You have GOT to be kidding.

I'm not disputing whether lesbians are more likely to be Obama supporters than McCain supporters, let's say, but the slight of hand of the sentence that linked Obama supporter with lesbian. "An Obama type person"- a quote attributed to Toobin, should have ended the sentence. Then new thought/new idea that she is "rumored to be a lesbian."

Sorry, but that is just bad punctuation.

Laurie, Those people no more represent Jesus than Stalin or Mao or Pol Pot represented Marx. Let's not throw out the baby with the bath water in either the case of Marx' teachings or Jesus'.
