Gay Blogger "satisfied with the positions" Kerry/Edwards took in Boston

byron from bor.jpgGay blogger Byron LaMasters of the Burnt Orange Report, whose attentions we've been trying to get since Monday, spoke with your guest editor this morning via Instant Messenger.

Bottom line: even though "gay" was never mentioned, the gays were happy with the convention. Although there was no ass-fucking in Boston (too busy!), the gays were "satisfied by the positions they took." Sounds dirty to me!

Byron, who is famous-for-Austin for being "on top of" of the Gay Governor rumors--was able to get one major scoop at the Convention. When the Dallas Morning News reported its list of Texas Democrats Missing in Action at the Convention...they forgot that the Former state senator and Texas Supreme Court Justice mentioned had been dead for four years, noting, "It's abundantly clear that Texas Democrats are running away from the Kerry / Edwards ticket!"

Burnt Orange Report [BOR]

Convention Bloggers: You be the judge [Wonkette]

IMterview with BOR's Byron and BoiFromTroy on July 30, 2004:

boifromtroy: good morning!

ByronL82: hello

boifromtroy: do you have a few minutes to do the AIMterview for Wonkette?

ByronL82: just got out of the shower

ByronL82: lol

ByronL82: sure

ByronL82: i have to check out of my hotel in 40 minutes

ByronL82: but sure

boifromtroy: want to put some clothes on?

ByronL82: i have enough :-P

boifromtroy: so over all, what did you think of the convention?

ByronL82: good overall. The balloons could have gone down better, but Kerry

ByronL82: 's speech hit the mark

ByronL82: as did Edwards, Bill Clinton and Obama

boifromtroy: yeah...the reaction to the Constitution line...

boifromtroy: on TV it sounded like it got the largest applause

ByronL82: i thought that it was great... i was chatting with a gay friend of mine from Houston earlier in the evening who was a little disappointed with the lack of explicit reference to sexual orientation / gays and lesbians in the speeches

boifromtroy: Kerry never mentioned gay marriage...though.

ByronL82: so i think that went a long way to addressing those issues - that kerry would stand up against FMA in prime time

ByronL82: Kerry / Edwards is the most pro-gay ticket in US history

boifromtroy: there were, what 250 gay delegates? did you hang out with them?

ByronL82: i'm satisfied with the positions they took - the gay community has to do more education on the marriage issue before we can realistically expect gay marriage to be embraced by either party

ByronL82: yeah

boifromtroy: was it a good time? any gossip to report?

ByronL82: two gay friends of mine from Texas were there, including co-blogger Karl-Thomas, well three actually, since former state rep. glen maxey was ther
