Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen Degeneres Show

I should have Ellen DeGeneres' levity, really. That broad pretends to be all puppy dog tails and bad disco gyrations, when, in fact, she's anything but.

Clearly, she's not at all pleased about what went down with Prop 8 (she and her luscious new wife, Portia De Rossi, campaigned heartily against it), or, surely, how Obama chose gay-insulting Rick Warren to say a pansyass prayer at the new chief's Inauguration.

But does Ellen rail against the hopeful new establishment in Washington for it's anti-gay positions (Obama does not endorse gay marriage, period) like I do? No. Ellen goes after sacred cow Aretha Franklin's Inauguration Day hat instead. Deft move, really, on so many levels. E.D. shows the new regime's not at all immune to lampooning. But she declared so with a smile.

Perhaps I should try one on more? I do so have hopes for our new prez. Like telling his wife to dress better, for starters!
