White House Tree Goes All Gay

A gay man has decorated the White House's Blue Room Christmas tree with communists and a "legendary transvestite" named Hedda Lettuce, according to the conservative blog Big Government.

The blog post, which is headlined "EXCLUSIVE: Transvestites, Mao and Obama Decorate White House Tree," takes to task gay designer Simon Doonan, creative director of Barneys, who oversaw the White House Christmas decorating this year.
It also includes close-ups of some of the Blue Room's Christmas bulbs, including one that features Mao Tse-tung, another with the president's face near what appears to be Mount Rushmore, and a third featuring performer Hedda Lettuce.

But the bulbs weren't part of Doonan's gay agenda. As anyone who watched Oprah Winfrey's Christmas at the White House special knows, the White House sent bulbs out to schools and community centers across the country for decoupaging. And as Hedda explains on her blog, one of the lucky community centers was a gay senior center where she volunteers. So as anyone would expect, Hedda decorated one of them with her own pictures. She writes:

"I may never get equal rights, I may never be blond and pencil thin, I may never see Lady Gaga in concert at Madison Square Garden (I could not get a ticket) but one of my balls is hanging in the White House with my name for all to see."
