The Joe Buck Disgusting Act of the Week: Bill Clinton

Gay rights groups and Labor Groups are boycotting the Manchester Hyatt in California because it's owner gave large sums of money to support Prop 8. Bill Clinton plans on speaking there for a trade group meeting, and as a result will cross the picket line. And while that's pretty annoying, the quote is the truly disgusting act:
“He's obviously sympathetic to this cause,” Clinton spokesman Matthew McKenna said. “I don't think you can name a leader in the world who has done more to advance gay and lesbian issues.”
This comes from a man who pushed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which rather than advancing a cause, actually TOOK AWAY the rights of gay and lesbian Americans. So you can make the case that any world leader who didn't actively oppress the gay community in their country has done more for gay rights than Bill Clinton.

And forgetting the facts, to make a statement like that while explaining that you're going to ingnore their boycott is pretty amazing in itself. I guess the real news here is that even though he hasn't been in the news much recently, Bill Clinton continues to find ways to remind everyone that he's a conceited jackass.


  1. Don't forget "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"!

  2. wait, why does Bill Clinton still have a spokesman? hasn't he NOT BEEN PRESIDENT for quite some time now?
