Betty White Wants to Know - Is Elena Kagan A Muff Diver?

Well I'm not really sure if Betty wants to know or not, but it does seem like no matter where you go, everyone is asking the same question.  Is President Obama's New Supreme Court Nominee, Elena  Kagan,  a Homosexual?

Is Elena Kagan Gay?

Gee, I don't know. Is the Pope a Nazi who protects child molesters?

Or as some might say, If It Looks like a Duck and Quacks like a Duck...

But is that really fair?  You know, just because she's pretty enough to be a Dyke.  Is it fair that we make that assumption?

Besides, it's not really important. Since Hillary never came out and nor did Janet Reno, Madeline Albright, Margaret Thatcher, Janet Napolitano, or even Sonia Sotomayor - why should Elena have to?

Although I must admit I fail to understand their reluctance. Since it's always been my experience that the world tends to take lesbians a lot more seriously than they do pretty little "Barbie Doll" straight girls. 

In fact, generally speaking, I think society gives gay women a lot more credibility, tolerance and respect than is generally afforded towards gay men.  There are of course exceptions to that.  Especially when it comes to occupations.

Let's face it, depending on the profession, most of America treats Gay Men the same way they treat Jewish Professionals.  Even An Anti-Semitic, Neo-Nazi Type will look for a Jewish name when he needs a really Good Lawyer, Doctor or Accountant.

Much the same way that an Uptight, Intolerant, Homophobic Christian Woman will still seek out the Gay Hairdresser, Florist, Wedding Planner, or Interior Designer.

The truth is, the really important question here is not Ms. Kagan's sexual orientation, but rather, where does she actually stand on the important issues.  Unfortunately very little is known about this nominee.  Does she tend to be a liberal, moderate or conservative? 

Is She Pro-Choice?  Is She a Civil Libertarian?  And just because she looks and acts gay - will she actually prove to be gay friendly?

President Obama seems to know and like her and that should be a good sign, but then again, this president has proven to be considerably more conservative than many of us had expected. 

As a Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan will be undergoing some extensive scrutiny in the coming months.  So hopefully, in time, we'll have more answers.  I plan to reserve judgment until then.

  1. Psst - She DOES have Lesbian Haircut No. 37.

    Just sayin.

  2. Like I told you yesterday on the phone Eddie, if John Belushi were alive he could be having the ultimate comeback impersonating this woman, he and Tina Fey could take their act on the road.
    In all seriousness though, I grew up in western PA and Elena really looks a lot like the average mother in my old neighborhood. Once her own kids were a little older she would get a job in the high-school cafeteria, it always looked like a casting call for the Michelin Man behind that lunch line.

  3. Eddie O'Reilly...that was hilarious.

    Folks-Elana Kagen was formerly known as Alan Hill, prior to gender reassignment.

    Alan Hill is the son of former British and PBS comedy star Benny Hill.

    Alan Hill became Elana Hill-Kagen, during pre-law college days in Massachusetts. Alan was frequently known to wear father Benny's costume wigs growing up, and actually still dons Benny's wigs to this day.
