Three cheers for Tom Tunney, dedicated activist, purveyor of legendary cinnamon buns and now Chicago's first openly gay alderman!

Ironically, I read where this appointment actually made a lot of the gay activists in the area angry because they were already backing Rick Ingram as the gay aldermanic candidate of choice. The article I read mentioned Tunney as having been referred to as a 'gay Uncle Tom'.
Which would provoke a new reading of Harriet Beecher Stowe, I think...

Reminds me of that porn movie I saw called "Run From Simon!"

Sounds like those single-issue voters may actually have to start looking at the broader platforms. Sorry, not a lot of sympathy for those angered by getting more of a choice.

Seriously, two well-liked and well-qualified gay candidates are running for the same seat, and people are mad?
