Kathy Griffin Lobbying For DADT Repeal For The Human Rights Campaign Calls Congressman A "Big Queen- Has HRC Screwed Up Yet Again?

I love Kathy griffin to death. I really do. And I can’t fault Kathy for being Kathy. She’s funny, over the top and a staunch gay advocate and activist. But surely HRC isn’t stupid enough to think that Kathy would be all business and totally Politically Correct did they? Because today the gay blogosphere is on fire because Kathy in an interview with Roll Call online called the third ranking Democrat and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn — who’s straight who happens to be an ally of the gay community — a “big queen”

Ouch!  One has to wonder why in the hell did HRC pick Kathy to lead thier DADT Repeal Lobby and Rally on Thursday in Washington, DC?

“I’m meeting with this big queen named Jim Clyburn,” [Kathy] Griffin, who is in Washington this week to lobby for an end to the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, told HOH. “I’m going to be the first person to ever walk into his office and go, ‘Hey, girl!’

I think its GREAT that Kathy is taking time to be involved and stand up for us.  She’s freakiun GREAT in my opinion.  But did HRC REALLY think she wasn’t going to be funny or do schtick?  If HRC wants Star Power why aren’t they going after other Hollywood personalities and power players to stand up for us?  And the answer for this one is easy.  FREE and EASY publicity for HRC.  Kathy loves exposure and HRC loves MONEY.  La Diva Griffin will have her D-List cameras in tow tomorrow and HRC has lost so much credibility and donations they are probably hoping that after the show airs (to it’s mostly gay audience)  thatr maybe it might generate some extra donations for the HRC.  Oh and I am sure “Little” Joe Solmonese will probably have a cameo, media whore that he is.
