I think by now we have all heard of the “whoopsie!” moment that GOProud had with Governor Rick Perry’s campaign pollster and strategist Tony Fabrizio. They outed him, accidentally. They didn’t know he wasn’t out. As Chris Barron, from GOProud, said on his twitter account on December 8th:
I don’t believe in outing – but if you live your life like an openly gay man how the hell am I supposed to assume you are closeted
GOProud issued a press release on December 9th which said that they were lead to believe that Fabrizio was out of the closet.
“From the time this organization was founded we have been clear in our opposition to outing. We would never intentionally out anyone. However, in the case of Tony Fabrizio, top pollster and chief strategist for the Presidential campaign of Texas Governor Rick Perry, we did not believe there was any question about his sexual orientation – nor did the reporters who called us to ask about his involvement in Perry’s anti-gay campaign strategy. Questions about an individual’s sexual orientation should obviously be answered by that individual.
I live in the desert. You have no idea how much I miss freezing temperatures and snow days…or ice storm days as we usually got when I lived in the south. I have to drive 2 hours up into the mountains to play in the snow. I have to plan a day trip to do it. I’m not amused. I’m moving somewhere that actually gets cold and has snow in the winter when I graduate from college. It just doesn’t feel quite Christmas-y enough without the possibility of snow, but these songs help.
