I’m not sure how you can argue that last night’s soiree thrown by GOProud and hosted by Andrew Breitbart, with bi lady Sophie B. Hawkins spitting out a few numbers, can be considered a “close to a game changer,” because there are gays partying at conservative events all the time. And when you’ve got Al Cardenas, the new head of the CPAC umbrella group American Conservative Union, going after GOProud much more than his predecessor David Keene ever did, well, I don’t know what game changed. Boggle? Chutes & Ladders?
“I have been disappointed with their website and their quotes in the media, taunting organizations that are respected in our movement and part of our movement, and that’s not acceptable,” says Cardenas from his new position of power. “And that puts them in a difficult light in terms of how I view things. … It’s going to be difficult to continue the relationship [with GOProud] because of their behavior and attitude.”
A threat that they won’t be welcome back next year? Oooh girl, hope you trimmed your nails, because things about to get bitchslappy up in hurrrr!
So while everyone is focusing on whether Donald Trump is going to run for president, GOProud chair Christopher Barron is left to wallow: “For the past six months, we have watched as unfair and untrue attacks have been leveled against our organization, our allies, our friends and sometimes even their families. Everyone has their breaking point and clearly in my interview with Metro Weekly I had reached mine. I shouldn’t have used the language that I did to describe Cleta Mitchell and for that I apologize.”
