I think if I was gay, I would want the likes of Rosie O'Donnell to withdraw completely from public life for the sake of advancing the cause. Just look at the quotes in the Drudge story
. This sort of activism doesn't help John Kerry, when such plainly stupid things are said, such as "the word 'test' terrifies (Bush)" because "he never passed one at Harvard or Yale" (Bush is the first president with an MBA) and that under the Bush administration, "we would ignore (UN) doctrine and resolutions" (1441, passed unanimously, was the latest of a dozen similar resolutions related to Saddam's regime). To the credit of the very large gay community in Miami metropolitan area, only three of four dozen people even bothered to see Rosie speak.
Speaking of underattended pro-Kerry events, Cher had one of her own
at a Miami disco, and of course she blamed the organizers because, of course, it can't possibly be because thousands of people wouldn't want to see Cher rally for Kerry. I find it hard to believe that such an event would go unnoticed in the Miami area, however underpromoted it may have been.
