'I Openly - No, Flamingly - Endorse Obama'

We noted Monday that gay media honcho Paul Colichman complained about being tossed under the very crowded Obama bus. Well, now it's developed into a full-fledged pillow fight in the gay community.
GAY media czar Paul Colichman's vow in yesterday's Page Six not to support Barack Obama over the candidate's opposition to same-sex marriage has other gay media bigs aflame. "By tearing up his check for Obama, he basically wrote one to McCain," Genre editor Neal Boulton told us. "I openly - no, flamingly - endorse Obama, whether he says he's for gay marriage or not. . . . I know under Obama, it will only be a matter of time until the country sees the legalization of gay marriage." James Hipps, project manager for gay-marketing firm Vibe Media, wants gays to cancel their subscriptions to The Advocate. "I am appalled," he said. "For our gay-lesbian- bisxexual-transgender rights to continue to grow and not further diminish, then we need to stand behind [Obama]. Good luck with your life, Mr. Colichman.

Last I checked, Obama claimed gay marriage was up to the states, essentially the same position as John McCain.

Does Mr. Hipps know something the rest of us don't?
