“Four dead Americans, and she’s doing a happy dance because she thinks the UN is gay-friendly now? What delusional fantasy world is she living in?”

What part of “misplaced priorities” is so hard to understand here? Does Ambassador Rice think gay people are too stupid to understand that they’re being dragooned into service as human shields to protect the (suddenly) endangered employment of herself and her boss?
That is to say, what she’s doing here is attempting to drape herself in the mantle of “human rights” and “equality,” to suggest to gays that if she gets thrown under the administration’s bus — of if President Obama doesn’t get re-elected — somehow these values as they pertain to “LGBT voices” will be jeopardized, not by bigoted foreigners, but rather by those evil homophobic Republicans.
“Defend me, you faggots — I’m on your side!”
If Andrew Sullivan had any shred of integrity remaining, he’d see through this shameless pander for what it is, and denounce it as an insult.
