Our dear leader has named one of the first-ever transgender presidential appointees; a former test pilot named “Amanda” who used to be called Mitch. He-She began work Tuesday at the Commerce Department.
“Amanda” Simpson, (shouldn’t it be Madge or something like that?) was appointed to be a senior technical adviser in the department's Bureau of Industry and Security. The bureau has since been scrambling to figure out how to deal with the building’s restroom situation.
He-She worked in the aerospace and defense industry for three decades and most recently worked for Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, Ariz. According to MyFoxPhoenix, she made history in 2004 by becoming the first openly transgender candidate to win a primary -- she ran for the Arizona House of Representatives but lost in the general election. I guess the voters of Arizona aren’t brain dead after all.
"As one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment opens future opportunities for many others," she said, in a statement put out by The National Center for Transgender Equality, where Simpson served as a board member. And, if Obama and all the left-leaning kooks have their way, she will probably be right.
According to a 2002 article on Simpson in the Arizona Daily Star, she went under the name Mitch for 39 years until undergoing six surgeries at a cost of $70,000 to make the transition from male to female. How much you wanna bet some insurance company footed the bill for this? And they wonder why the cost of health care is so high. I wouldn’t be surprised if buried somewhere in Obama care, there is some provision for taxpayer money to fund this too.
All this in the name of diversity, being “progressive” and politically correct. But, we still can’t say “Merry Christmas.”
