Washington, D.C. — An ornament featuring well-known celebrity drag performer Hedda Lettuce has the right-wing outraged the night before Christmas.A blog posting on Andrew Breitbart's right-wing BigGovernment.com Web site entitled, "EXCLUSIVE: Transvestites, Mao And Obama Ornaments Decorate White House Christmas Tree," reports this latest "controversy" facing President Barack Obama.
The Christmas ornaments in question are part of a design by openly-gay Simon Doonan, creative director of Barney's New York, and are displayed on the White House Christmas tree in the Blue Room.
The three ornaments in question show an image of Hedda Lettuce, which is signed by the performer; an image of an Andy Warhol print of Mao and the third shows a photo of Obama on Mt. Rushmore. All of the ornaments were designed by community groups and are part of 800 Christmas ornaments sent to community groups, schools and charities for decoration....ORIGINAL ARTICLE
It is only fair Ms. Lettuce's response to all this nonsense is published so here we go.
.....The Obama’s should have removed the General Moa ornament and apologized for the oversight, that way the people in this beloved country would understand that it was just a mistake and they did not personally endorse such a an evil dictator. Also in regards to the tree being called a Holiday Tree instead of a Christmas tree, well that is like saying a drag queen is just a festive woman; no matter what you call it it’s still a Christmas Tree and I am still an very attractive man in a dress. This country is getting awfully stuffy with this pc nonsense. There is an old saying, “You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” What happens is your try to please all of the people all of the time? You become a big fat liar!You tell 'em Hedda!
