Politicians are human. Humans are animals. And, as we all know, animals like to have a bit of fun, even when the human is Barack Obama campaigning across the country.
That helps explain why the Democratic presidential candidate recently played a carefree game of Taboo with press and staff aboard his campaign plane. For those of you who don’t know, Taboo involves picking a card, which will contain a term or saying and the player must get their teammates to guess it. They cannot, however, use certain prohibited words. It’s great fun.
Anyway, as mentioned, Obama recently played and helped produce this humorous anecdote:
When [Obama assistant Reggie] Love described the Gap as “where gay people buy clothes,” Obama — who may or may not have heard the clue right — shouted out “Abercrombie and Fitch,” drawing laughs from the younger players.
He must have had a momentary flashback of his famed Abercrombie moment.
Ahahahaha. That’s hilarious. T-minus 10 seconds before the Hillary gays starting freaking out….
hell's kitchen guy
OK, that’s funny.
“Abercrombie & Fitch” is the correct answer. Point goes to Mr. Obama.
June you are correct. Gays haven’t shopped at the GAP in almost 10 years.
Hm, is that really funny, not annoying?
Yep, Obama got it right. The guy is clued in.
There’s more to him than people want to think!
But I’m puzzled as to the relationship of that and the previous story, which I’d forgotten!
I hope that he doesn’t think that all gay people are banal and superficial. I guess that that’s far more a store related to some gay tastes than GAP. Strange coincidence; wonder if he
was aware of the peculiar situation in Indiana
Those guys can’t have been gay(?!>*&?). Gay culture is pretty sold out to Coorporate Concerns since people started to assimilate.
I stopped with the standard Levis.
do gay people have to be “banal and superficial” in order to recognize that the Gap’s clothing is crap and cheaply made (and partially unethically made as well) or that seeing homoerotic “art” pictures will cause us to look a second time… and then possibly look at the clothing they are promoting? can we be blamed for this natural reaction?
do all gay people have to be “banal and superficial” if they choose to coexist with “corporate concerns” since many large corporations provide decent-made clothing designed, created, and shipped to our part of the USA… and keep the price low enough so that the majority of us can actually afford since we are not all made of money. is this considered a “sell out”? i would love to buy Edun everything (since their company IS actually changing the world), but it’s just not financially possible for me or most of middle america.
i’m all for change (whether it’s obama or clothing). people who get stuck in ruts and fear making a change for the better worry me more than those that may stereotype gays.
and the guys in the Indiana pic were not gay… they were just gay wannabe’s.
Would it have been funny if the clue was “where black people eat?” and the answer yelled was KFC.
If you’re gay and over thirty and wearing A&F you come off a little sad and desperate to be young.
not sure that I get the rift; KFC doesn’t have much to do with age, but the fact is that after 30 gay people aren’t as label concsious (like any young people,) so it’s hard to pick something typical.
If you want feel sad and despirate after 30, anything can make you feel that way. Get some friends, go to the gym..
Shouldn’t he have yelled Banana Republic?
hooray stereotypes!!!! : )
