Okay, so at this point, I'm supposed to comment on the similarities between Howard Bellwether's behavior, and that of Andrew Sullivan, who was caught in similar circumstances. I've gotten quite the education on Mr. Sullivan this week, not to mention the perils of barebacking in re mutant HIV strains, for which I once again thank our loyal posters. Andrew Sullivan? Not so much a fan. However, I will point out, in his defense, that CowLip -- if they are indeed trying to satirize his situation -- has managed to misrepresent and muddle the situation to an ever greater extent. But it's hard to hit someone with the Hammer of Hypocrisy without getting bruised yourself. I mean, really -- a long term, supposedly committed couple that justifies fucking around? Someone needs to be a little careful where they point that mirror. Thanks for listening.
"We are not giving Brian Kinney an award!" Tannis screeches, not realizing that her head mic is on. She stands with Mel and L. in the middle of the reception room, where various minions are setting up for the awards dinner. Phillip trots up to take the head mic from her and snipes, "Our mistake was sending committee neophytes to do co-chair work in the first place." He says that if Brian insists on accepting the award, the GLC is just going to have to refuse to give it to him. Lindsay says that's not really a good idea. Melanie tries to shush her, but Lindsay goes on to say that if they rescind the award, the GLC will be in breach of promise, and Brian will sue. Tannis is shocked. Well, duh. Lindsay grins, "'Non-profit' will take on a whole different meaning." Tannis asks Melanie whether Brian can do this. Melanie's like, yeah, pretty much. Phillip whines that it would ruin them financially, to say nothing of the public humiliation! Melanie suggests, as the Center's counsel, that they just give Brian the award. Phillip pouts, "Well, you can tell Mr. Kinney that he can add blackmail to his long list of accomplishments." Tannis and Phillip storm off. Melanie's impressed by Lindsay's quick thinking. Lindsay chuckles, "Well, you fuck a lawyer, you pick up a few things." So to speak. Sorry, there's a shortage of bad puns this week, I'm just trying to pick up the slack. Lindsay and Melanie both make this cute "whew!" motion with their hands and book out.
