    First Openly Gay Senator Elected

    Tammy Baldwin is elected the first openly gay senator | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Tammy Baldwin has been named the projected winner in her race against Republican Tommy Thompson. Baldwin's victory makes her the first openly gay candidate elected to the U.S. Senate.

    "Tammy Baldwin's victory showed what a majority of Americans already know: that candidates should be judged on their qualifications for the job and not their sexual orientation," said Herndon Graddick, president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
    Awesome. Good news on another front after last night's elections.

    And the best part is, her record on base civil liberties(PATRIOT Act, NDAA, etc.) and war inspires me to support her even politically!

    I'm sorry but I just can get excited by stuff like this it's like "first senator to use missionary position gets elected", or "first senator to like role play gets elected", I'm really not caring what politicians get up to in their bedrooms.

    This may make me seem like a horrible, horrible person but I will say it.

    Tammy? Really? Tammy beat Tommy in the elections and not Tammy gets to go Congress.

    I only find it hilarious because in all the movies, Tammy is usually the name a woman dancer gets...

    Also, this video from the onion.



    Other than that, I have no problem with her sexuality. If the good people of wisconsin saw her fit to represent them then she must really be an impressive lady. A lady named Tammy )

    If anyone else is named Tammy in the DP forum, please don't hate it. I only find it amusing because of my lack of contact with... Tammies around the world )

    Maybe you can hang pink drapes in the Senate Chamber.

    That's nice.

    I wish the first openly gay senator was a good one, though.

    Well, when you get the Republicans to support a gay candidate, let us know. If they're openly gay, it'll be awfully hard to sneak them past the religious nuts.

    I have no problem with her being Gay, I have a problem with her being a far left Liberal.
