Dan Choi has finally jumped the shark with his completely uncalled for remarks about Harry Reid in the Village Voice and I feel sad for the LGBT activist movement and Dan. He has it wrong. Harry Reid is not a "pussy", Dan Choi is.
I personally introduced Dan to Harry over a year ago at a dinner and we were both shocked when Harry told the two of us that he "and the President were working on getting rid of this foolish policy, DADT, because it makes no sense." Harry admired Dan's medals and they had quite a friendly chat.
Since then, with the country in economic ruin and people losing their homes left and right, Harry and the President have still been working on making sure that DADT repeal is moving forward. But it's not moving fast enough for Dan and his puppet masters who have an axe to grind against the Democratic party. So, Dan pulls cheap stunts such as making Netroots Nation all about him by climbing on the stage to give his West Point ring to Harry.
I will fill Dan and his army of sycophants in the blogosphere in on something. If Harry didn't want Dan to have that moment, his security detail would have taken Dan down like a Predator drone on a car full of insurgents on a Basra back road. Dan came off the stage proud that he had hijacked the day of a room full of people, I was proud that Harry handled this public pout with aplomb and grace.
Like a gentleman.
When I saw the awful things that Dan said about Harry in the Village Voice, I thought to myself, "what an idiot". Then I realized that Dan is no idiot.
He's a bully.
If the light isn't shined on him and Rachel isn't calling regularly, something must be done, and right away.
For Lt. Dan Choi, it doesn't get better.
And it won't because once it does, he floats down the stream with all of the flotsam and jetsam of history. He is grabbing his moment in the media glare and I hope he enjoys it because it's minute 13 as we speak and there's a shark that he just jumped behind him.
(Washington, DC) - National Stonewall Democrats PAC announced its latest set of endorsements of pro-equality Democrats including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV), Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Rep. Jared Polis (CO) and Rep. Tammy Baldwin (WI). Twelve candidates were announced as part of NSD PAC’s ElectEquality program in May (one candidate was ousted in a primary, making the number of ElectEquality candidates eleven). Rep. Barney Frank’s endorsement was announced last week.
“We are thrilled to announce our full slate of endorsed candidates for the midterm elections,” said Michael Mitchell, Executive Director of the National Stonewall Democrats. “Whether incumbent or challenger, the candidates on this list are all strong, pro-equality Democrats and hail from rural, suburban and urban districts from coast to coast.”
“We are very aware that the only way we are going to achieve full equality through legislation is with a pro-equality majority in Congress with allies, friends and compatriots like those listed here.
“It’s no secret that many of our candidates are in tight races and we encourage our members, supporters and the LGBT and ally community at large to give your time and resources to the people on this list, as well as other pro-equality candidates down the ticket where you live.”

Democrats, Republicans, Latino Leaders Unite vs. Hispanic Voter Suppression Efforts; Univision Pulls the Ads; Angle Silent
Inexplicably, Sharron Angle remains silent as the national uproar over her comments to local Hispanic high school group grows louder and louder
LAS VEGAS – Within hours of an out-of-state right-wing Latino front group with ties to the Bush Administration announcing they’d run television ads with the shameful and appalling goal of suppressing the Latino vote in the November 2nd election, local Latino leaders denounced the group and challenged both candidates and media outlets to denounce and refuse to air these un-American ads and their despicable message.
In addition to Sen. Reid, both gubernatorial candidates Rory Reid and Brian Sandoval were quick to denounce the ads and call for them to be pulled from the airwaves for their offensive and abhorrent message to suppress the Hispanic vote right here in Nevada. News outlets are now reporting Univision will not air the group’s offensive, un-American message on its airwaves.
And while bipartisan opposition to this out-of-state, anti-Latino filth was unanimous from the moment the ads were released until the announcement Univision would pull them from the airwaves, we heard nothing but deafening silence from Republican Sharron Angle.
Perhaps that’s because Angle didn’t want to address the national uproar surrounding her pathological assertion to a group of local Hispanic teenagers that her widely-criticized immigration ads aren’t actually about Latinos, but rather they’re about Canada and our northern border. Perhaps it’s because of Angle’s keen interest in suppressing the Latino vote since her extreme anti-Hispanic agenda has been exposed throughout the course of the campaign. Whatever the reason, Sharron Angle’s silence in the face of this serious threat to suppress the voices of Nevadans is completely reprehensible.
“Since the moment that news of these despicable voter suppression tactics were made public, bipartisan Nevada leaders and the Latino community have spoken out against these un-American tactics with one unified voice – except for Republican Sharron Angle, who’s involved in a national media firestorm over anti-Hispanic remarks she refuses to explain,” said Reid campaign spokesman Kelly Steele. “The fact that Sharron Angle refused to speak out against these truly abhorrent tactics should tell all Nevadans, and especially the Hispanic voters she’d prefer be silenced, everything they need to know about why she’s unfit to represent our state in the US Senate.”
Sharron Angle Lies to Hispanic Teens, Then Lies About Lying to Hispanic Teens
LAS VEGAS – Sharron Angle was asked about her inflammatory TV ads by a member of the Hispanic Student Union at Rancho High School in Las Vegas – ads that have been referred to as “Sharron Angle’s ‘Willie Horton’” and widely panned for using incendiary, nefarious-looking photos of Latinos and scurrying across a fence and imposed in front of a map of Mexico.
In response, Angle told the Hispanic teenagers they’d misinterpreted her ads, questioned that the premise the ads were about Latinos (seriously), and said the issue in the ad was security of our northern border with Canada.
Now that she’s being called out by local and national media, her DC handlers have been rushed in to control the damage, issuing a statement suggesting Angle’s statements were completely innocuous:
“Sharron is making the point that this country is a melting pot and you cannot judge people based on stereotypes or the way they look.”
But like Angle’s statement that she’s not sure the Mexican men in her ad are Latino and that the ad is about northern border security with Canada, her campaign’s assertion is a complete and total lie. Angle’s ad is a clearly a fear-mongering, inflammatory attempt to scare Nevadans, and nearly every member of the media is calling her on it:
Ralston: The video is Angle “telling a group of Hispanic children at Rancho High School that images of Latinos in her ad that are clearly Latinos may not be. Indeed, the images in the ad are of Hispanics in Mexico, as The Washington Post and others have pointed out. And it is no mystery what race they are, as she claims. … But then she takes it far -- even for her -- by talking about how the real problem is the northern border!”
Washington Monthly: “Angle's race-baiting ads, some of the ugliest since Jesse Helms, have all the subtlety of a wrecking ball. She shows viewers images of Mexicans and a map of Mexico over on-screen text about "illegal aliens." But she's "not sure that those are Latinos"? Her point relates to Canada? After 20 years following politics closely, I've just never seen anything so pathological. Sharron Angle is either mentally disturbed or she thinks the people of Nevada are morons.”
POLITICO: “The ad in question clearly shows an image of three Hispanics who are identified in the spot as “illegal aliens.” In fact, the picture shown in the ad is the same one used by in an ad from Sen. David Vitter (R-La.). That ad has the words ‘benefits for illegals’ written over the image.”
Washington Independent: “In the ad, a picture of three Latino men appears on screen with the words ‘ILLEGAL ALIENS’ while a voice-over discusses Reid’s support for immigration reform measures. The ad has been called ‘anti-Latino’ and ‘race baiting’ by critics, but Angle said she did not see it that way. ‘I’m not sure that those are Latinos in that commercial,’ she said. ‘What it is, is a fence and there are people coming across that fence. What we know is that our northern border is where the terrorists came through.’”
Washington Post: “A couple of weeks ago, Angle released an ad with sinister overtones showing Latino ‘illegal immigrants’ sneaking through a ‘border fence.’ It even uses a stock photo Republican Senator David Vitter deployed in a similar advertisement. The ad restates a number of debunked claims about Reid's record on immigration, but the most egregious part of the ad is where she contrasts an image of ‘scary-looking’ Latino ‘migrants’ with a group of happy, white college students while saying, ‘Reid wants to give preferred college tuition rates to none other than illegal aliens.’ … She had released a similarly racially tinged ad weeks earlier. But during an appearance before a group of Hispanic children at Rancho High School in Nevada, Angle implausibly claimed she had no idea that the people in the ad were meant to be Hispanic, and claimed the ad was about the ‘northern border.’”

But Moi REALLY loves a good old fashioned beat down.
And that, my little Democrats, is EXACTLY what Dina Titus did to What the(Joe) Heck the other night in Henderson.
Warning: When Titus puts on the spectacles, you 'bout ta get hurt up in here.
Heck must have thought he was back in Iraq as the incoming was hitting him left and right.
The Professor had The Book!
The facts were pouring out in such rapid fire you almost thought Dina was spraying bullets like a G-Man at a Mobster's Ball. All Joe could do was sit there looking like he wished he was out teabaging somewhere.
Tonight is another round and I want front row. I think I'll grab some Red Vines on the way 'cause it's about to pop off up in here!
Over the past few days you have refused to give a simple answer on whether or not you wrote a homophobic letter when you were an Assemblyman on State Letterhead. In addition, you have refused to answer whether or not you had a sign on your desk that read, "No Rights For Sodomites".
I would appreciate an answer immediately. Yes or No answers only. I have become increasingly exasperated with your tap dancing around the questions as if you were trying to just keep dancing until we "Yahoos" leave you alone.
Furthermore, you have decided that this is somehow the fault of everyone from some imaginary intern to the great unknown homophobic UNR football player (Btw, you should be ashamed of yourself for smearing the University that way). You have tried to say that this couldn't have happened because you always sign both first and last names to your letters. You seem to remember the details of every single thing of the time except whether or not you signed this homophobic letter or had that homophobic and rather childish sign on your desk. If your office was run so haphazardly that interns and college football players were able to issue derogatory letters on your state letterhead, why should I support your run for an office that requires way more management skills than you seem to posses?
I am also putting you on notice that I am a hard core Democrat. I am Chairman of the largest LGBT political organization in this state. In addition I have almost 4,000 "Friends" on Facebook, 2,000 or so followers on Twitter and was recently named one the "Top Ten Bloggers in Las Vegas" by AOLand co-host a progressive radio show with Stonewall Democrats State Caucus President Chris Miller. I say that, not to brag. I am telling you this to explain to you that I will keep asking you this question until I get a Yes or No answer to my questions, to Chris Miller's questions AND to Republican Mark Ciavola's questions. If you can't answer the simple questions we have asked, I will simply encourage everyone I reach everyday to start asking you those very same questions.
I don't know if you're trying to run out the clock until voting begins, but rest assured, I want an answer well before the early voting process begins. I have never voted for a Republican in my life, do not force me to in your case.
Your opponent will be a guest on our show this Saturday, I welcome your participation as well.
Las Vegas took the first steps to become a "Bully Free Zone" with the "It Gets Better" rally Monday 04 October at The Arts Factory in District 18B. QVegas Magazine was instrumental in making the rally a success. Here is just one of the videos produced by QVegas.
Dina Titus is on OUR side and is the best candidate to continue representing one of the largest districts in the country. She has been there for Progressives and Nevada. We MUST send her back as our representative in DC.
Support Dina Titus As she takes on Senator Heck
