    I can imagine her doing it without his OK because she’s the one with tons of money and he’s been sponging off her for years. She can do whatever she wants.

    Gay is new territory. We don’t elect these people trying to make a name for themselves on us… Cooper, Savage, Maddow, Black, Lambert and Towle… name a few. Remember these could be tomorrow’s has beens. Represent yourself. Being gay is owned by you — no one else. Don’t be a follower.

    antb: Another bitter-phobic. Wake up. I never hear a “big loud chorus” over anything. That’s your reality. “Equal rights fame whore” is right on the money Alan. I simply can’t respect who I’m “supposed to”.
