I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Hillary not feeling the gay love

Old Republican reports about Hillary Clinton secretly being a lesbian to the contrary, one of the largest gay rights groups in New York State has given Senator Clinton the thumbs down. Via Pandagon:

In a memorandum to board members, Alan Van Capelle, the executive director of the group, the Empire State Pride Agenda, said Mrs. Clinton was “a complete disappointment,” taking issue with her opposition to same-sex marriage and her support for the Defense of Marriage Act.

…In his memo, which was reported on Tuesday on the Politicker Web site of The New York Observer, Mr. Van Capelle said that he refused to “lend my name and sell tickets” to any fund-raiser sponsored by a gay group for Mrs. Clinton’s re-election campaign.

Also, this from 365gay.com
We have become a community that throws money at politicians, and we demand nothing in return. And that’s what we get: nothing. It’s the wrong message to send.”
For a woman who, at one time, seemed to have the mantle of power being handed to her on a silver platter, Clinton has certainly managed to hamstring herself in the political arena. Apparently the LGBT community has taken to calling her "Shillary", which I'm afraid I have to chuckle at.
