They Said What??? — Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, & Madonna

AUTHOR ED KLEIN, “AMATEUR:  BARACK OBAMA IN THE WHITE HOUSE”

(on Oprah Winfrey’s reaction when First Lady Michelle Obama refused her help on her childhood obesity campaign):  “Michelle hates fat people and doesn’t want me waddling around the White House.” *

(on Michelle Obama’s reaction to Oprah to her staff): “Oprah with her yo-yo dieting and huge girth is a terrible role model. Kids will look at Oprah, who’s rich and famous and huge, and figure it’s okay to be fat.” *

(on Michelle Obama’s feelings toward Hillary Clinton):  “a snake.” *

FRENCH NATIONAL FRONT LEADER MARINE LE PEN

(after being labeled as a nazi in an on-screen interlude in Madonna’s new “MDNA Tour”): “We understand how old singer who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes.  If she does that in France, we’ll be waiting.”

’80s POP STAR COREY HART

(on performing at Toronto’s Gay Pride in late June)”A lot of people on my first couple of recordings that I worked with closely were gay.  I developed very close friendships with these people, and I saw a lot of pain, a lot of suffering, and a lot of hiding.”

WAYNE BESEN, FOUNDING EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, “TRUTH WINS OUT”

“A victory by President Barack Obama would be a watershed event that would signal the beginning of the end of second-class citizenship for LGBT people. If Mitt Romney were to emerge victorious, it would usher in four to eight more years of viciousness.”

FORMER “EX-GAY” AUTHOR JANET BOYNES

“Dr. Drew, you always have a tendency of putting people on your show that is against Christianity.  Why don’t you, Anderson Cooper, and Ellen DeGeneres, Barack Obama put people on their show or bring them to the White House that [believe] change is possible. You never give us the opportunity to come on the show and really tell our side of the story.  It’s always one sided.”

THE RABBINICAL ASSEMBLY’S COMMITTEE ON JEWISH LAW AND STANDARDS

(on providing guidelines on performing same-sex ceremonies):  “We acknowledge that these partnerships are distinct from those discussed in the Talmud as `according to the law of Moses and Israel,’ but we celebrate them with the same sense of holiness and joy as that expressed in heterosexual marriages.”

* While this author claims to have to talked to hundreds of Obama’s friends and advisors, I don’t buy it.
