The White house vehemently denies rumors that their leading candidate for replacing Justice Stevens on the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, is lesbian. (Not that anything is wrong with being Lesbian) But you’d think that there was if a homosexual was ever nominated to the Supreme Court and the White house attempted to hide the fact until that person was confirmed. (see story)
Solicitor General Elena Kagan
The White House ripped CBS News on Thursday for publishing an online column by a blogger who made assertions about the sexual orientation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, widely viewed as a leading candidate for the Supreme Court.-- Howard Kurtz
Just think of the slap in the face of all Homosexuals if one of their own had to be snuck onto the court. Where’s the pride in that?
First CBS refused to retract the story but after coordinated attacks against the Broadcast company and the poster of the original story by Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy. You remember Ms. Dunn who lost her White house post when she said that one of her favorite political philosophers is Mao Tse Tung.
Dunn smeared the broadcast company and Mr. Domenech by stating that they had become enablers of people posting lies on their site. She further denigrated the broadcast company by remarking, “[this] tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010."
After such reporting, Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic picked up the story as rumors among gay rights activist and social conservatives that Elena Kagan, is lesbian.
Will the White house make the Kagan story an embarrassing spectacle for all homosexuals by attempting to hide the fact that they are ashamed that their nominee is Lesbian if in fact she is?
