RNC's Dave Agema and His Problem with Flight Attendants

Last week when we had the two big Supreme Court arguments on marriage equality, there was a veritable flood of gay stories, here on the blog and out in the world. And there still are, because all of those stories shook loose a whole bunch of other ones.

This one is about one of the GOP's lesser lights, and he'd hardly be worth a mention but for his stunning lack of awareness about how he comes off. And his world champion abilities to keep digging his hole deeper. But the kicker (for me) is the source of his anti-gay animus: gay male flight attendants. First, let me tell you that I'm married to one. Second, let me tell you that if you can pick your own flight crew, pick the gay guys. They're really the best at what they do, no matter what this yahoo says. But how could I resist this story, particularly when written with the heavy snark of Wonkette? I couldn't, that's what.


RNC Bigot/Ex-Pilot Dave Agema Talks About His Issues Inside Homosexual ‘Flight Attendant Realm’

PS. Johnny from Airplane! wasn't a flight attendant, and I didn't even know the actor was gay when I was a kid. But others got it, it's hysterical, and Wonkette included it, so here it is!
