I don't give a good gaddam if Jason Collins takes in the ear. What I find curious and somewhat amusing is how the by just announcing his sexual preference a very marginal athlete garners celebrity status and even a presidential phone call. Is it possible that he and Obama were lodge brothers in Rev. Jerry Wright's down low club. “The person I saw yesterday is not the person I met 20 years ago.” Just kidding.
Anyway Collins and Michelle are teaming up to fund raise at the DNC's LGBT gala on May 29. It was thought that Michelle would take that day to sucker her tomato plants but when duty calls... Ask Terry McAuliffe. Fund raising's a bitch. He once had to leave his wife and newborn baby in the car to fund raise.
"Dorothy was starting to well up in the backseat. She was having trouble understanding how I could be taking my wife and newborn baby to a fund-raiser on our way home from the hospital. We got to the dinner and by then Dorothy was in tears, and I left her with Justin and went inside. Little Peter was sleeping peacefully and Dorothy just sat there and poor Justin didn't say a word. He was mortified. I was inside maybe fifteen minutes, said a few nice things about Marty, and hurried back out to the car. I felt bad for Dorothy, but it was a million bucks for the Democratic Party and by the time we got home and the kids had their new little brother in their arms, Dorothy was all smiles and we were one big happy family again. Nobody ever said life with me was easy."
