Texan Gay Not Impressed With “Old Fart” Chelsea

Chelsea Clinton’s non-whorish campaigning took her to Texas last week, where journo Daniel A. Kusner found himself underwhelmed by the former first daughter’s “soft” gay talk.

My question came next: “I noticed during the gay rights question, you kept using the word ‘civil’ throughout your answer. Why can’t your mother stoop low enough to grant full, equal marriage rights for same-sex couples? Or is the word ‘marriage’ too sacred for the Clintons?”

“Civil unions is what my mother has supported for as long as I can remember. I’m 27, ” Chelsea said.

“But the word ‘marriage’ is off the table, right?” I asked.

“Well, sir … She’s always supported civil unions,” Chelsea said.

Chelsea Clinton is 27 years old, and her forum is a college campus. So why is she speaking like such an old fart? Even Jenna Bush can tell Diane Sawyer that some of her fathers’ policies are too complicated for her to necessarily agree with.

Oh, snap!

    Why doesn’t she take the Elizabeth Edwards way? I felt better knowing John Edwards had the ear of Elizabeth who was for full and equal rights. Can’t Cautious Clinton, Jr. take a stand?

    Although I don’t LIKE her answer, she answered the guy in a totally straightforward way. What’s the problem?

    Hells Kitchen,
    You are not political so you wouldn’t know.
    The problem is that Civil Unions only give state rights due to DOMA, whereas, “marriage” would allow for full state and Federal rights, of which their are over 1000. Heterosexuals automatically get these rights when they get a marriage license. We don’t. That is the problem. The word “marriage” is a hot potato for the Clintons.

    What do you expect from this HedgeFund parasite?

    Um, charley, somehow in the nonpolitical recesses of my consciousness i had realized the (balefully obvious) points yo’re making about the distinctions between “domestic partner,” “civil union” and marriage. My point was that i disagreed with her statement but thought her stating of it was full frontal, not weasley the way the speaker and post implied.

    I love the way Certain People get all personal in their attacks under camoflauge of anonymity. Just make your fucking point without the ad hominen attacks, OK? I don’t need you to tell me how politically aware you are and what a retard I am. Thank you.

    Hells Kitchen,
    Our words follow us around. I assumed you were not political based on your post concerning Rupert. As follows:

    the NYC Gay Pride March goes on for 5 hours. there are political groups, corporate groups, professional groups, religious groups, educational groups, service groups, and, yes, there are hot boys on floats. why does this bother some people so much?

    And as for people in Sydney being offended by the Mardi Gras parade, boy is THAT off base. Straight people in Sydney LOVE that parade. And when I’m at Gay Pride in NYC, the tourists LOVE those sexy floats.

    the only ones who hate it, it seems, are the oh-so-above-it-all “political” fags who like to post on blogs like this.

    I think you misinterprested that post. I didn’t mean that I wasn’t “political,” was putting down people who are by any stretch. I meant by that people who consider themselves political to the exclusion of all else, including that all-important leisure-time activity of staring at beautiful men. You gotta be well-rounded (especially on the backside).

    Actually I do NOT thing she was talking straight. She was NOT answering the question. She was talking like a robot.. which is basically what politicians do, and we should not accept it just because it’s a standard and expected way for them to speak.

  • logan767

    We dont get the context for this exchange at all. The guy seems to be attacking Chelsea Clinton for stating fairly clearly what her mother’s political position has been. He’s not asking her to clarify her own opinion… which may or may not be different.

    Speaking of Chelsea Clinton:

    There is bad news about her father.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.
