Kathleen Sebelius Rumored for HHS Secretary, Gives Us Excuse to Talk About Her Hot Son


Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius is rumored (read: likely) to be Obama’s choice to be Secretary of Health and Human Services, replacing tax evader Tom Daschle. Kitty is one of our favorite politicians; as governor she proposed a national bill of patients’ rights and prevented the sale of Blue Cross and Blue Shield to an out-of-state company that would have raised premiums, but every discussion we have about Kitty Sebelius always returns to the fact she has a hot artsy son that we’re in love with.

John Sebelius, a RISD-grad, caused a minor controversy for his mom when he started selling a prison-themed board game called “Don’t Drop the Soap.” He has opinions on fashion: “I don’t like fur. Denim on denim. I don’t like the Canadian tuxedo-denim jacket with denim jeans. Or skorts.” He designs his own line of artsy suit jackets and shirts under the auspices of Gillius Inc. We have more than once fantasized about being a power couple, though the reality that Sebelius lives in Kansas (and is, as far as we know, not gay) brings us back to Earth.

In any event, we sure hope his mom winds up as HHS Secretary, if only so we can have an excuse to keep talking about him for the next four years.

      He may not be gay, but let’s face it, from his style interview you linked to, he fits a massive set of gay-types in:

      “What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? A roller disco. Nice restaurants that are relaxed, like a piano bar. A roller disco/piano bar, if they could somehow combine the two.”

      Unfortunately, Kathleen Sebelius is probably the only Democrat who could have won the senate race in Kansas in 2010, so Obama gets an ally in his cabinet at the expense of a democratic pickup in the Senate. Oh well.

      @concerned – I thought she was term limited and couldn’t run again? Not sure about that though?

      If you would prefer to see Howard Dean as our new HHS Secretary, please contact President Obama at http://www.whitehouse.gov.

      @concerned: Apparently she doesn’t want to be a Senator.

      Man, he looks too much like his mom. I wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about Kathleen Sebelius while I was banging him.

      He’s the friend of a friend and from what I understand, straight but super gay-friendly. I mean, any straight man who supports piano bars and roller discos is my kind of hetero!

      @douglasgibsonjr – I’m satisfied with Kitty. I think Dean would do an excellent job as well though. I get the impression that him and obama are not the best of friends. Picking the cabinet is the one thing I think should not involve politicking. Naive I know.

      The school is RISD, not RISDI.

      @greg ever- i noticed the same thing, but the school is commonly pronounced as (risdi / risdE), I assumed that is what Japh was referring to.

      I am familiar with how RISD is pronounced, I almost went there for college. But anytime I’ve ever seen the pronunciation spelled out, it’s been “Risdee” or Rizdee”. “Risdi” is a pretty ambiguous way to write it if you’re talking about the way it’s said. Plus I don’t think it would have been all capitalized if that were the case.

      But I realize I am getting way too deep into this, it’s not that big of a deal. ;)

      @greg ever – agree and as it sounds like you know, its a pretty cool school if some people haven’t heard of it with an excellent reputation.
