A leaked document says the polarizing actor-activist, along with some music, sports and political icons will each be featured on their own stamps, but a Postal Service spokesman says it's too early to say for sure.

...

Those names and more, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and slain gay activist and politician Harvey Milk, were leaked via “confidential document” to the Washington Post, according to Roy Betts, a spokesman for the Postal Service.

Hard to imagine anyone more polarizing than Harvey Milk!

I hope it’s the one where he’s holding high a musket at an NRA meeting and saying “From my cold, dead hands!”

LOL.

Unfortunately if you urinate on it instead, it squeals with delight.

See #3...if the USPS did print one like it, I’d buy $1000 worth of them.

99% of people buying stamps will say "Harvey who?"

99% of people buying stamps will see Charlton Heston and say, "Oh, I loved him in Ben Hur."

Controversial, pffft.

Charlton Heston is polarizing. But the Malcom X stamps were fine and dandy. Am I missing something??!?

Harvey Milk was a pederast, so of course he deserves to be on a US postage stamp. Just remember which side to spit on!

Not at all...

Sorry. Charlton Heston IS Moses.

The USPS didn’t have a problem “commentating” a faggot child molester!

Charlton Heston = Controversial
Having a stamp with homos on it asking for “Equality” is considered “Heroic” sick what our country has become

Supporting America and the Constitution is “controversial” and “polarizing”?

ONLY IN RED HOLLYWEIRD and certain parts of California, Illinois, DC and New York.

In much of the country, supporting our country and our Rights is downright “patriotic” and “normal” (liberal areas excluded).

I’m waiting for the Black Panther Party stamp that Holder is designing. Will cost a buck and if you don’t buy it, a BPP member will hit you with a bat.

Heston was only “controversial” to the America-hating communists and Nazis. I don’t see a problem here.

Harvey Milk had a thing with Jim Jones and somehow Charlton Heston is the scandalous one.

That’s the one I want to see. Sign of the times. And one of those cards that plays the quote when you open it up, like birthday cards that play a song.
