Think pink elephants and you’ve just about nailed what should be GOProud‘s mascot. But who would have guessed that their “Gay Icon” would be Ann Coulter? Well, anyone that knows anything about GOProud probably would have guessed that. She is the Barbara Streisand of the Republigays apparently and her word is gold.
That’s why GOProud, who claims to be “the only national organization of gay conservatives and their allies,” announced that Ann Coulter was joining the organization’s Advisory Council as their Honorary Chair. And literally, the woman who said that if her child told her he was gay she would tell him he was adopted – her title is “Gay Icon.”
What are they putting in those apple-tinis? They should try organic apples; maybe the pesticides are getting to them.
Anyway, you can imagine that gay rights groups are freaking the f*&% out about this! At one point in the press release issued by GOProud, Chairman Christopher Barron explained their reasoning for choosing Coulter, “Ann helped put our organization on the map.”
To which the gay blog Queerty responded, “Yes, just like the nuclear meltdown helped put Chernobyl on the map.” (read the rest, it’s hilarious)
According to GOProud, Coulter will share space on the council with Margaret Hoover, Grover Norquist, Andrew Breitbart, Liz Mair, Chuck Muth, Lisa De Pasquale, Christian Josi, Roger Stone, Andrew Langer, Kathryn Serkes and Bob Carlstrom.
And you thought Chernobyl was bad.
But what is truly interesting is GOProud’s complete lack of self-awareness as noted in the following video. In the video, Coulter explains how she talked GOProud out of supporting gay marriage. We sh!t you not. And to that we dedicate the final video of the wonderful Barbara Streisand/Barry Gibb duet to GOProud:
