She'll have all summer to prepare (to get a standing ovation no matter what she says)

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council sure has faith in Carrie Prejean's staying power. While the annual event is not until mid-September, the "pro-family" outfit has already added the young sash-wearer to its uber-anti-gay Values Voters Summit:

200905041427-1
2009 Values Voters Summit [Another unfortunate FRC product]

Though if this annoys you as a queer progressive, just think of how pissed Sarah Palin must be. Now she has to tone up for the swimsuit competition that she thought she had in the bag! Poor dear.

*To remind yourself what the VV Sumitt is all about, peruse our archives from the past two years.

*Of course "invited" doesn't mean attending. Look at the eventual no-shows that they touted last year

Your thoughts

OOOPS. JH. That must be the My-Only Value Voters Summit, right? (MOVVS)

Look! They put the two Beauty Queen (losers) Runner-Ups right next to each other. That's going to be awkward dinner table conversation.. "Tina Fey played petite moi on SNL!" countered with ".. well, I don't speak Russian, but at least I WON in California! You were barely runner-up against ESKIMOS, BITCH!"

A rogue's gallery of right wing nutjobs, suitable for darts!

Wait...wait...Gary Sinise? PLEASE don't tell me he's part of this crowd. I had no idea.

I think Gary Sinise is wishful thinking on their part. He is conservative and pro-military but I believe he's also fairly lgbt-friendly. (but hey, what do I know, it's not like he's my best bud.)

Every year they put out a list with at least 5-6 names that are obviously never going to attend. Last year they did this with both Obama and Clinton (see link at bottom of post).

It's a really disingenuous (and transparent) attempt to drum up ticket sales, with FRC obviously hoping that people won't see what the asterisks mean.

".. attempt to drum up ticket sales, with FRC obviously hoping that people won't see what the asterisks mean."

Sounds like they're tacitly agreeing that the minions who donate money to them are gullible! In fact, more than that, they're depending on it!

It's very true, Dick. How often do you see a group selling an event in which less than half of the announced stars are actually booked?

Posted by: G-A-Y | May 4, 2009 8:55:52 PM

I wonder if she'll still be on the invited speakers list now that the nude photos have surfaced....

At the upcoming VV Summit I understand that Carrie will be giving a talk on the Prosperity Gospel, the popular doctrine that says "God wants you to be rich." She will reportedly reveal that the doctrine includes God wanting women to have big fake tits.
