"Perhaps for the first time in Chicago history, one of the frontrunner candidates for the Democratic nomination for president attended an event at a gay bar.

Howard Dean, who is leading in most polls and is benefitting from a major fundraising effort fueled by hundreds of thousands of people giving small donations over the internet (25% from people under 30 years old), spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted, Dec. 4."

Probably a tactic to get him as much prime time TV exposure as possible. Prime time TV is full of homos & maybe Howard thought many were shot at that particular sodomite bar. If not, so what, he probably got laid too.

Attendees said that Ho Ho Dean bent over backwards glad-handing the crowd, reaching around when needed. There was an unconfirmed report that he took a couple gerbils from the snack tray.

"Stumping" in a gay bar? Isn't that against the decency laws?

I wonder if he met Ben Dover while he was there? Or Dick Hertz? I hope he brought plenty of Crisco with him.

Never "stump" in a gay bar. It's akin to saying "Michael Jackson endorsed me!".

Rough and tough and strong and mean

God bless Mother Nature, she's a single woman too
She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel to rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! It's Raining Men! Amen!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah!
It's Raining Men! Ameeeeeeeeeennnn!

I feel stormy weather Moving in about to begin
Hear the thunder Don't you lose your head
Rip off the roof and stay in bed
Rip off the roof and stay in bed

God bless Mother Nature, she's a single woman too
She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
She taught every angel to rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's Raining Men! Yeah!

Bring him on!

It will be interesting if Dean doesn't even get the 3 electoral votes of VT.
Although he's dodging the issue, it could be that Dean help facilitate the
abortion of babies who'd have grown up to vote for him.

Personally, I don't think this guy Dean has all his buttons. I further think that he should get really close to Gore and check out whether he (Dean) is an Alpha, Beta, or Percy male.

Howeird Dean *is* a stump! He has no neck, and is a squatty, angry metrosexual. I guess there are no metrosexual bars in Chicago, so he had to do make do...

Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted

I lived in this neighborhood (Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood) for 5 years.

This is a 'vanilla' gay bar, full of what we used to call 'yuppies' and 'lipstick lesbians'. Wannabes. It's anything but hard core.

If he was trying to make a point, or build credibility 'in this community' (which to be honest is a joke: who among the gays are going to vote for GW?) he'd have been better off at the 'ManHandler'. But, that wouldn't play too well in Peoria, would it?

I rather think it frustrates the gay community that the dems tease them like this.

He's beginning to develop a Bubba schnoz, too. Reckon that could be a clue, as to those sealed records?

Now we know why Howie had his records sealed: they were "The Best of Judy Garland," "The Best of Liza Minelli," "The Best of Barbra Streisand,"......

Nope - not quite ugly enough. Farrah Fawcett, maybe; but doesn't have those Jaggeresque lips

Funny, that they felt the need to label who was on the left and who was on the right.

I like that....There used to be a local (newspaper site-sponsored) forum with one raving bumpuncher; everytime I'd ask him about the 'Garland Thing Fetish', he'd claim he had no idea what I was axing about.....I think the stereotyping nailed him in the ass, so to speak.
