The First Openly Gay U.S. Senator!
Tammy Baldwin -- who's the only out lesbian in Congress -- has announced that she's running for senator of Wisconsin, a position that would make her the first openly gay member of the Senate.
(I'm emphasizing openly. There are plenty of closet-case senators spreading their butts for various hookup apps on a daily basis.)
As Baldwin told her assembled fans:
"All my life, the naysayers have told me that I can't win because I'm a progressive, because I'm a woman, even because I'm a lesbian.
"And I've proven them wrong beause I've had rock-solid supporters like you standing with me."
By the way, the guy Tammy is expected to run against is a rabid homophobe who once said he wouldn't hire someone who announced themselves as gay!
Let's all move to Wisconsin and vote for Tammy so a gay gets a job.
Believe me, she's qualified.
