"A spokeswoman for Obama said the president-elect would probably not attend any of the Leather Weekend events." That is a real sentence from a real news story.

Apparently, during the weekend preceding Barack Obama's all-star gala inauguration, Washington DC will also host "the 25th annual Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend.... Hosted by the city's Centaur Motorcycle Club, 'a group of men with an enthusiastic interest in motorcycles, leather and other men...."

So Barack Obama's inauguration, as we all predicted, will be a big sweaty hairy gay leather party, the end.
