Three of Four Openly Gay Reps. Are Jews

Plus Schumer won’t be leader, Feingold won’t be president

In an report that AIPAC was pleased with yesterday’s results (it helps when, as an Israeli Embassy spokesperson accurately put it, “Support for Israel at the Congress is strong and bipartisan”), Haaretz notes that Rep.-elect David Cicilline (D-Rhode Island) “becomes the fourth openly gay member of Congress—and third Jewish gay member of Congress.” It’s true! The four openly gay congresspersons (there are no openly gay senators) will be Cicilline (currently the mayor of Providence); Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts); Jared Polis (D-Colorado); and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin). Baldwin is the only Gentile (and only lesbian) among them.

In other midterm wrap-up news, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) put a quick death to talk of a challenge to re-elected Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nevada)’s leadership position; on a conference call, third-ranked Schumer and second-ranked Sen. Dick Durbin (Illinois) literally answered simultaneously, “Absolutely!” when asked if Reid would remain Majority Leader. And defeated Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin), known for being a maverick of the left (he was famously the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act in 2001), put an equally quick death to talk that he would consider a primary challenge to President Obama. Well, nearly as quick: A spokesperson said, “I would chalk up any Beltway chatter about Russ running against President Obama as simply Washington getting wee-wee’d up on the first day of a new election cycle that is two years away.” If the wee-wee’ing continues, we will keep you posted.

At a doctor’s office one morning, I got into a conversation with a 90-something, Jewish man. I was mostly listening to him lament the fact that he was aging in spite of his frequent exercise; he seemed to hold out hope that lifting weights and walking three miles a day would give him eternal youth.

We were also chatting a little about the news when something with Barney Frank came on.

Him: “I didn’t know Frank was gay?!”

Me: “Yeah, I thought everyone knew that.”

Him: “But, he’s *Jewish*. I’ve never met a Jewish gay.”

Me: “I’m gay and Jewish.”

Him: “Really?”

Me: “Yes, and I go to CBST, a gay synagogue.”

Him: “Heh….who knew?…I hope I didn’t offend you, I’ve just never met a Jewish gay.”

Me: “No, you didn’t offend me. Now you’ve met a gay Jew.”

We went on to discuss the news and his pondering what would finally kill him off. It was such an oddly delightful conversation.

Excellent blog you have got here. You will see me looking at your stuff often. Saved!

great points altogether, you just gained a brand new reader. What would you recommend about your post that you made some days ago? Any positive?

How many Dependent P. D. does to take to change a lightbulb? None, he’s still clinging to the old lightbulb.

Juvenal~ It is not easy for men to rise whose qualities are thwarted by poverty.

I don’t think any news show should give out news based on their own personal beliefs. How do you feel about this?I’m having trouble finding international and national news merged into one show. I just want the traditional news where the anchor reads the introduction, he/she talks about it, a video is shown and she just moves onto the next story.

I have no idea how any news channel would have reacted to what I thought was something odd and a bit complicated, thus making it important in the world situation we now have. But just in case I come across something like that I want to tell someone immediatedly, in strict confidence.

Where is the best place to read news? I’m still giggling lol!
A while back I came across what I considered extremely important news and wanted to let national V news channels know, but could not find anywhere I could “click” for lets say “news tips”, “contact us”, “urgent news”, or similar. It may sound silly but there are some things sometimes people feel better telling it to news mediums than police or other authorities.

I dont’ want a discussion show, just traditional news. Thank you. Please tell me what channel the show is on and what time as well as the timezone you’re referring to.

Well because news people are always willing to hear and listen to what you can explain to them in an intelligent way. Most of the time authorities tend to make their own judgement without you finishing your story. Or worse yet cut you off telling you.

I have and I really think that in this economic crisis we are in, that we deserve to hear good news. I would rather hear good news than stuff about bail out plans and all the jobs being lost. And I am down right tired of hearing about the stock market.
