Lady GaGa Didn’t Help

September 21st, 2010 // 97 Comments

Lady GaGa appeared at a rally in Portland, Maine last night (above) to convince Republican Senator Susan Collins to vote with the Democrats today in repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Let’s, uh, take a look at how that went. The Huffington Post:

“I find myself on the horns of a dilemma,” said Collins. “I was the sole Republican in the committee that voted [to repeal DADT]. I think it’s the right thing to do. I think it’s only fair.”
But, she said, refusing to allow unlimited amendments is an equal affront to decency. “That too is not fair,” said Collins of Reid’s decision. “I cannot vote to proceed to this bill under a situation that is going to shut down debate.”

So oppressing minorities is bad, but so is not allowing Republicans to get some tchotchkes, so let’s keep doing the oppression thing. Makes perfect sense.

I find myself in an interesting place on this one because, despite the fact we want the same thing, did Lady GaGa really have to poke her face (I hate myself.) into this one? This situation just proves celebrities make these things worse which is awesome because I love being right even though I could’ve done without the whole repression of a minority group thanks to institutionalized superstitions from a book where a donkey talks to people. But I appreciate the thought.

    She looks like Howard Stern in drag with that big-bird beak nose LOL

    It is annoying when celebrities get involved with politics just to stay in the limelight

    This has nothing to do with gay rights, all I want to know is what the hell is that nutcase doing dressed in a little suit behind a podium? I figured she was a little crazy before, but now after the meat suit, this woman needs to be taken off that stage with a net and get some deep therapy. She’s got dillusions of grandeur. NOT. Didn’t belong there.politics and show business don’t mix.

    Publicity gimmick. Just like Katrina, just like Haiti, just like Sri Lanka. Just like Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift.

    If Gag Gag is gonna be that outlandish with her comments and concerts and magazine spots, what makes you think she won’t try to milk something like DODT. Now she has people saying, “Gag Gag really cares and she’s well informed.” She’s a celebrity. How do you become one? Do something or comment on something that is relevant. Appear on TV and POW…instant status.

    Ask Kim Kardashian, Kate or Octomon.

    She didn’t hurt it, either. Republicans don’t think they simply refuse to vote with President Obama. They could care less what the issue is.

      You know not agreeing with someone is a good reason to not vote too. When Republicans were in power most Democrats didnt vote with them. It wasnt against George Bush, it was against the ideas. Democrats like big government and giving away other peoples money, while Republicans like smaller government and letting people keep as much of their money as possible. It is a difference of ideas of how the country should be run.

      Good job trying to make it something so juvenile as “not because Obama wants it.” If you actually kept up, you would know Obama hasn’t commented either way. So how can they vote against him? The same as everything else, no stance and no details.

      How about in 2006 when Nancy Pelosi, said “we don’t have a plan, we just need to defeat George Bush.” That couldnt be not-thinking and being against the person and not a point coming from a Democrat could it? And when Republicans dont agree based on different values it is not thinking? No wonder I vote independent and am leaning more Republican every day.

    I hate when bags of garbage support my causes. Maybe I’ll get lucky and she’ll fall face first one on of her ‘shoes’.
