Andrew Sullivan recently:
Dan Savage notes the latest act of symbolism by the Obama administration to mollify the gay community: the ambassadorship to New Zealand and Samoa. Ronald Reagan also used an ambassadorship to send a symbolic message: he appointed a black man as ambassador to apartheid South Africa. So why not appoint an openly gay ambassador to, say, Jamaica?
Why not offer to go yourself, Andrew?
Oh, wait, you don’t play at life, you just sit in seats you didn’t pay for and bitch at those who actually participate.
