I'd imagine some actual gay people would find that a bit insulting but whatever. God knows they have to think of something to help them move a few of those printed editions off shelves.

Yet another example of why I don't read Newsweak anymore. Buchanan was the first gay president, not Obama!

So then was Lyndon Johnson the first black President? Or was Abraham Lincoln?

Johnson, I'd say.

So would Wilson be the first female president?

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Hey, it makes as much sense as calling Clinton the first black President.

IIRC that label fell to Bill Clinton.

How was Wilson the first female president? I thought he was an opponent of women's suffrage.

Near the end of his presidentcy his wife was basiclly the president because he was so horribly ill.

By the way, here's the article:

I doubt it.

For those who are interested, Salon.com has an interesting piece on James Buchanan, the United States' first real gay president.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.
