Who's contributing to our anti-wedding fund?

by Jeremy Hooper

200807161258Wanna know who's supporting the effort to ban marriage equality in California? Well thanks to a tip just given to everyone by Firefly over at Pam's House Blend, we have learned that at the following link, you can track who's contributing to both the side of fairness for all, as well as the side of bias for some:

Campaign Finance: PROTECTMARRIAGE.COM, A PROJECT OF CALIFORNIA RENEWAL [CA Sec. of State]
(H/t: PHB)

Picture 11-79**UPDATE: The anti-gay list is pretty much devoid of bold-faced names. However, one that sticks out is actor Orson Bean, who donated 100 bucks. Among Bean's many acting credits? A 2000 guest stint on "Will & Grace" and 1998 turn on "Ellen."

Hmm..."turn on Ellen." Yea, that sounds about right.

Your thoughts

The irony is Orson Bean played a gay man on Will & Grace - it was the one with Piper Laurie (Carrie's crazy Christian mom) where both basically play older versions of Will & Grace it was a really funny episode – which I will not be able to watch the same way again now.

I was wondering who he played, Alonzo. I've seen every episode like 5 times, but I couldn't place him. He played the college professor who Will & Grace went to visit to get some inspiration, and he turned out to be all cranky and pessimistic in his old age. Isn't that ironic, how real life seems to imitate art?

Did you notice all those "unemployed" donors that gave $10,000 and up?

Hell, maybe I should go on unemployment!

That's too bad. I enjoyed him in Being John Malkovich.

I loved this man, if only because his name sounded like what would have been the celebrity moniker for the tumultuous relationship between Orson Welles and Mr. Bean, had it lasted beyond its honeymoon phase.

And now he is dead to me.

I loved him in that Twilight Zone episode. Actually, that's the only thing I've seen him in. Oh well.

I'm not thumbing his Balzac anymore.
