We Are Family!
Whether by accident or divine intervention Fox & Friends, on Monday, used one of the world’s most popular gay anthems as they introduced Mitt Romney’s five sons.
The song “It’s Raining Men” was written in 1979 by David Letterman’s maestro Paul Schaffer and gay songwriter Paul Jabara, who died of complications from AIDS in 1992. It was recorded by one-hit-wonder The Weather Girls.
The LGBT community adopted the song as a gay anthem, catapulting it to the number one song in 1982 and then again in 2001, when it was covered by British pop singer-songwriter Geri Halliwell.
I, personally, have probably heard the song upwards of 5,000 times in gay bars and discos across this great nation. It would have been fun to see the Romney Boys jump up and “shake their little money-makers” a bit, while the lead-in played, but I guess the “apples don’t fall far from the very straight and rigid tree.” (It looks like the whole gang shares one personal shopper, too).
For those of you who are longing to get in touch with your “inner homosexual,” have at it with the long, FABULOUS studio version.
