LaBarbera: Why can't my peeps come play in my backyard?

by Jeremy Hooper

   Peter LaBarbera, a man who routinely puts ill noise into Illinois' gay community, is questioning why Chicago Mayor Richard Daley supports this summer's Gay Games, yet hasn't even made a bid for the 2008 Republican National Convention. LaBarbera says, "To not even bid on the Republican convention after having a Howard Dean moment celebrating Chicago's landing of the 2006 'Gay Games' says a lot about the Mayor's confused priorities," adding, "Perhaps if this were a convention of homosexual Republicans, he would be showing some interest."

Our solution: The 2007 Republican National Gay Games Convention. Just imagine it: Babs Bush, Condi, Mary Matalin, and Ann Coutler, clad in Marc Jacobs rainbow suits, doing a synchronized swimming routine to "Hung Up;" rhythmic gymnastics with Lindsey Graham and Lamar Alexander; you can get the Governator to do weightlifting -- just put him in a HRC tee and you're good there; Ken Mehlman clapping enthusiastically in the stands; the "White House team" and the "Fox news Team" could battle it out on the diamond (with the Fox team of course lobbing softballs), while drag queens serve as umpires. So many options. Plus, whenever interest was waning, everyone could just play political football (with gays as the ball); it would all be conserva-bulous!

Think it over, Mayor Daley and Gay Stigmatizer LaBarbera -- maybe we could finally bridge that wide gap between the games that are gay and the convention that's far from it.
