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.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

IIRC that label fell to Bill Clinton.

Convincing BRTD to drop the Sneakers O'Toole BS is like convincing Sneakers O'Toole to take his sneakers off.

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.
