Dianne Feinstein Awarded Gay Award... For Causing Most Harm to Gay-Rights Movement

They eat their own (ahem):

In Dianne Feinstein's hometown of San Francisco, hard feelings apparently linger about the senator's remark that the push to make marriage legal for same-sex couples hurt Democrats in the November election.

Organizers of the gay pride parade held in the city every June announced Thursday that Feinstein was the winner of this year's "Pink Brick" award, a dubious honor bestowed on the public figure a San Francisco group decides has done the most to damage the gay rights cause. President Bush and talk show host Laura Schlessinger were the previous winners.

Joey Cain, president of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Committee, said Feinstein was nominated for the prize for telling reporters the morning after Bush's re-election that progress on the gay marriage front "has been too much, too fast, too soon."

"There are a lot of people in the community who feel very betrayed by her because they have supported her," Cain said.

Howard Gantman, a Feinstein spokesman, called the senator's nomination for the Pink Brick "very unfortunate," saying it neglects Feinstein's long record of support for gay and lesbian issues not only as a senator, but as a former San Francisco supervisor and mayor during the early days of the AIDS crisis.

"It's really too bad they haven't chosen, in terms of this effort, to really focus on people who have been longtime opponents of the gay community," Gantman said earlier this week.

Goddamnit, I wanted to win, baby. My full-page "For Your Consideration" advertisement in Variety was just wasted money. As usual.

I'm going to start my own "Busted Flush" award for conservatives who have most betrayed the conservative faith and thus harmed the movement.

My first winner? G. Gordon Liddy, that red-diaper pansy of a queerbait commie.
