Boycott Boycott?

Some New York gay politicos are standing up for Hillary despite her opposition to same-sex marriage, which led the head of the state’s main gay-rights group to suggest gay donors stop giving her money.

Matthew John, an Upstate Democratic Committee member, is calling on gays to “refuse to lend our names to support or buy tickets to [Empire State Pride Agenda’s] Gay Brunch In April in Buffalo to support ESPA’s partisan fundraisers…. Isn’t it the job of disgruntled republican henchmen to sling this kid of mud?

Actually, I’m having trouble recalling a Republican henchman smearing someone for opposing gay marriage. But maybe I don’t pay enough attention.

In any case, Jay Leno had another take:

“More problems for Hillary Clinton. The head of New York state’s leading gay rights group describes Hillary Clinton as a disappointment on same-sex marriage. Today, her husband Bill described her as a disappointment on opposite-sex marriage.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
