I am Gavin, hear me advocate

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 14-49Does Gavin Newsom crap rose-scented pride flags? Because honestly, this straight dude's gay commitment is so strong, it almost makes us feel like we're homophobic:

Newsom Offers To Staff Butte, Kern County Weddings

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5 / KCBS) ― San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said he would go to Butte or Kern County himself to marry gay and lesbian couples, if those counties truly do not have enough staff to perform same-sex ceremonies next week.

But that's not all. We also hear that if the state's voters ultimately choose to pass a constitutional amendment that overturns marriage equality, Gavin will clothe himself in a symbolically tattered replica of the state constitution, go to the homes of everyone who voted in favor of the measure, and give them his mean face while protest songs blast out of a boombox that he's foisting over his head.

He's dedicated, that man!

And that's why I'm going to vote for him again this year.

I love that man.

I just wish he wasn't so hot looking. Whenever I see him, I get totally distracted from his message.

UPDATE from Butte Cty, FRIDAY, June 13. Yep, now that we have official license application forms that say PARTY A and PARTY B (this happened yesterday AM after I sicced a City IT person onto the County website 'error.') .... and Gavin is so willing...
I guess we are on here next week!
Dropping a little notice to the local paper about all the $$$$ that people would NOT be spending on gay or het weddings here, may have helped a bit too, since it is an overwhelmingly Repug area, and that bottom line can trump ethics any day for Repugs.
