The best sentence I read today

"What's good enough for gay bowlers ought to be good enough for even the most politically correct of political scientists -- or so one would think."

This from Charlotte Allen's hilarious de-pantsing of the American Political Science Association's deliberations of whether to break their contract to have their convention in New Orleans because Lousiana has voted to ban same sex marriages.

APSA actually has something called the "Committee on the Status of Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals and Transgendered in the Profession" which is pushing for the boycott, though the "Committee on the Status of Blacks in the Profession" is in favor of sticking with the Big Easy.

Having lived in New Orleans for a few years I can say unequivically that it is an extremely gay-friendly town so I'd endorse Ms. Allen's observation that, there is something inherently ludicrous about a proposed boycott of New Orleans to protest discrimination against gays.

Mungowitz: care to defend your tribe??
