Obama Administration Includes A Gay!

by Sara K. Smith

Not pictured: the guy in the 'administrator' costumeRemember how everybody got all excited at the thought of a lesbian running the Labor Department? Well, that didn’t happen — instead some boring straight lady who at least had the decency to be a Latina was appointed. So where are all the gays in Obama’s grand new rainbow government of change? Now we have our answer: managing the secretarial pool.

In our vast and wonderful government, there is an Office of Management and Administration, which is tasked with supplying “administrative services to all entities of the Executive Office of the President … These services include financial management, human resources management and research assistance.” Translation: this is the office that contains all the people who in a “normal company” tell you to order fewer roller-ball pens, pester you about your biannual review, and make photocopies.

Who is the new gay leader of this hell-swamp of administrative goons? Brad Kiley! He currently runs operations for the Obama-Biden transition team and he used to be vice president at the Center for American Progress. In other words, he is a big fat liberal who can make the trains run on time. Kiley’s appointment is a huge step forward for gay America and a milestone in the marriage equality movement, obviously.

Obama names gay man as director of Office of Management and Administration []

Does this mean that the Village People are going to change their hit “In the Navy” to “In the Admin” or “In the OMA” ?

LOL alt-txt.

Party time….everybody in the pool!

blader January 6, 2009 at 9:35 am

Perfect, low stress job for a gay. Should leave him plenty of time after hours to practice his gay homosexual lifestyle.

MARCdMan January 6, 2009 at 9:38 am

Better than a fat conservative who made Italy’s trains run on time.

Monsieur Grumpe January 6, 2009 at 9:39 am

Don’t forget his gay agenda.

WadISay January 6, 2009 at 9:40 am

This weakens the traditional bonds between me and my heterosexual office manager.

Scandalabra January 6, 2009 at 9:42 am

Americablog will still find a reason to be all pissy about this.

La Figa January 6, 2009 at 9:43 am

Brad may be the first gay man a high ranking WH position, but on On Dec 10, Obama appointed Nancy Sutley, a prominent lesbian from Los Angeles, to lead the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

…Secretary of the Interior…Decorating?

[re=209548]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Is reducing paper requisitions part of the gay agenda?

Obama appointed Bill O Riely to the cabinet?

shanemacgowan January 6, 2009 at 9:53 am

[re=209558]shanemacgowan[/re]: excuse me, “Bill O’Riley”

rocktonsammy January 6, 2009 at 9:57 am

First the coloreds and now the gays, Brock never said anything about this in his change thingy.

jagorev January 6, 2009 at 9:59 am

This is quite possibly the single most powerful office in the federal government, at least if my company is any kind of guide. Congrats, gays!

joezoo January 6, 2009 at 10:02 am

Rick Warren will officiate the hiring process and will give Mr. Kiley a stern talking to about his sinful lifestyle and if he’d like to hang out later and, uh, if he knows any good meth connections (wink wink).

Homo Motors January 6, 2009 at 10:03 am

[re=209549]WadISay[/re]: Ya know… that’s still called ‘bad touching’. And it’s not acceptable, even for heteros.

actor212 January 6, 2009 at 10:05 am

He’ll provide “administrative services”, eh?

How fast do you think Ann Coulter will be to hook into that innuendo?

magic titty January 6, 2009 at 10:05 am

Will he dance like Emile Hirsch in “Milk”?

TGY January 6, 2009 at 10:08 am

Village People for teh win.

charlesdegoal January 6, 2009 at 10:12 am

Race? Check. Religion? Check. Sexual Orientation? Check. National origin? Where the fuck are the Estonian-Americans in this administration?

Heidi Li January 6, 2009 at 10:16 am

President-elect Obama is very much like Wonkette itself. Willing to pretend to be liberal but actually uninterested in genuine liberalism.

queeraselvis v 2.0 January 6, 2009 at 10:20 am

It sorta figures that Kiley graduated from TCU. He does resemble a televangelist, or at least one that’s more than familiar with the missionary position.

Dreamer January 6, 2009 at 10:21 am

I will not be impressed till he appoints a muslin terrorist.

Colander January 6, 2009 at 10:23 am

[re=209575]magic titty[/re]: How do you think he celebrated his appointment?

Colander January 6, 2009 at 10:24 am

[re=209602]Dreamer[/re]: Does the First Lady count?

Naked Bunny with a Whip January 6, 2009 at 10:27 am

Half his cabinet are closet furries, too. Yiffpile every Saturday in the Oval Office!

mbprice January 6, 2009 at 10:28 am

Don’t look now but Janet Napolitano is running Homeland Security. So that makes at least two.

space stout January 6, 2009 at 10:29 am

will Mr. Kiley be responsible for recruiting, training and retaining any white house pages? Banguary here we come! Feblewary? It has to happen in the first two months cuz I got nothing funny to make outta “March”.

sarcasticusername January 6, 2009 at 10:41 am

why the hell does wapo have something called kidnews? well they do lean a little to the right so i guess pedophiles do make up a significant portion of their subscription base, i suppose in a way they should be applauded for giving their readers what they want.

sarcasticusername January 6, 2009 at 10:45 am

oops posted that in the wrong place. why is barry so homophobic, he just had to go and make one of teh gays a “secretary,” his sexist self probably hired a lot of womenz as secretaries too.

shortsshortsshorts January 6, 2009 at 10:52 am

I call bullshit. There are dozens of teh gayz in Congress, but they are also awful fucking cowards, so they rape their prey in secret.

SayItWithWookies January 6, 2009 at 10:58 am

Good gravy, he looks like an insurance salesman. Is it really diversity if your gay appointee is a white male who looks like an actor in a Wonder Bread commercial? Okay, small steps…

Doglessliberal January 6, 2009 at 10:59 am

His bio says he went to Texas Christian University. That must have been simply delightful for him, as a gay, liberal male.

Miller January 6, 2009 at 11:19 am

Can we trust a gay to not over order Bic’s and three ring binders? I think we’ve progressed enough as a society to at least make the attempt. If he fucks up though and there aren’t enough post it notes, I fail to see how gays can ever get even a modicum of equality in this country. The job is just that important.

clover January 6, 2009 at 11:31 am

Brad, the gay office manager? Lame sit-com level of representation…

actor212 January 6, 2009 at 11:47 am

[re=209695]Miller[/re]: Are you suggesting he might suffer from CDO, which is OCD in alphabetic order?

rina January 6, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Judging by my friends, I’m not sure I’d trust a geigh to get anything running on time.

DAmicosonegoodyear January 6, 2009 at 12:02 pm

[re=209594]Heidi Li[/re]: You know, you’re right. I mean, he seems far too interested in continuing the Clinton years to actually do anything progressive.

You PUMA Hill-tard.

dennymcden January 6, 2009 at 12:06 pm

You always want a gay running operations. Otherwise, instead of cushy Aeron chairs, all those straights will be sitting on Yaffa Blocks. Talk about scandal in the White House!

sevenrepeat January 6, 2009 at 12:11 pm

my gay pride has never been more proud.

dougbob January 6, 2009 at 12:17 pm

at least the offices will look fabulous

Bruno January 6, 2009 at 12:20 pm

I’m curious to understand who at Wonkette is responsible for ensuring there are “fewer roller-ball pens”? I can only imagine the plush, orderly, wood paneled office s/he must sit in.
