Head 'eros: Ranking those who stand with us
These are the names that Change.org's Michael Jones has pinpointed as the "The Top [six] Straight Allies in Congress for 2009." Go find out why and how this Capitol Hill quintet sextet has chosen the pro-gay lifestyle:
The Top Five Straight Allies in Congress for 2009 [Change.org]
**Ed. note: I thought it went without saying, but a comment suggests otherwise. So just to clarify: I was being silly with the "chosen the pro-gay lifestyle" quip.
Please don't refer to us as a "lifestyle." Jet-setting is a "lifestyle." Being a fashion plate is a "lifestyle." Clubbing and resorting is a "lifestyle." Being gay is a sexual orientation.

Gary: Are you kidding me right now? Do you really think I, someone who works on this stuff for 8-10 hours a day, would refer to gay as a lifestyle?
Go back and re-read. I said they have straight folks have "chosen the pro-gay lifestyle." Was just being silly.

Clearly math is not Mr. Jones strong point, there are six names on the list and having a tie for first does not make it a top five. I guess sextet would have sounded too obscene. I know it seems like a minor point, but this is the type of thing our opponents will use to riducule and diminish what is otherwise a good article about our allies in Congress.

Well Ken, i looked at this list like ten times, and this is the first time I noticed there were six rather than five. So perhaps I too need to pay more attention to the math :-)
I'm going to change it to sextet. Obscense, schmobscene -- I love some good, sexy wordplay.
