The Huffington Post, yesterday:
The Politico, also yesterday:
Lady Gaga and Sen. Harry Reid have been known to engage via Twitter over the effort to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Now that the policy is soon to be repealed, pending Barack Obama’s signature, Reid was quick to alert Gaga of the good news over the weekend.
“@ladygaga We did it! #DADT is a thing of the past,” tweeted the majority leader on Saturday.
Why do I get the feeling if Gaga and Geary actually engaged in conversation, it would go very much like this dialogue between another Democratic (ex) senator and distaff rock star:
Finding himself talking to the controversial rock star Courtney Love at a Hollywood party, Mr. Gore attempted to charm her by telling her he was a fan. Rather than just accepting the easy compliment, Love cross-examined him.
“He goes ‘I’m a really big fan’,” said Love. “And I was like ‘Yeah, right. Name a song, Al’.” The answer came limply back: “I can’t name a song, I’m just a really big fan.”
Mr. Gore and his wife, Tipper, were the driving forces behind the campaign to make record companies put stickers on records that contained lyrics with sexually explicit content.
