HRC Leader David M. Smith's 
Curious Twitter Feed

America's top gay friend to the Democratic Party, the Human Rights Campaign's deputy executive director since 1993, David M. Smith, is the man behind the curtain puffing up the org and it's titular leader Joe Solmonese.

David is the almost-unseen gatekeeper for mainstream Democratic gay issues, and he does his best to stay out of the limelight. Better that way to keep his role in HRC's many legislative and political setbacks and disasters away from prying eyes.

For a modicum of insight into this powerful Democratic strategist, I read his Twitter feed and discovered he's a jock lover. David hasn't sent a ton of tweets, but what he has posted gives tiny peek into what's on his mind when not stalling a viable gay agenda. Click here to read all of his tweets.

While he's certainly promoted HRC and touted their work in his tweets, I've excerpted mainly the apolitical ones here, and a few from gay bloggers needling him. I find them all highly amusing:


  1. Watching Redskins - feels like Election night.
  2. CONGRATS SF!!!!!!!!!
  3. Go Ducks!!!!
  4. Go Ducks!
  5. Kanye: A toast for douchebags, assholes, scumbags and turncoats. Amen. You know who you are!
  6. Did Gaga just hand Cher the microphone?
  7. Both just started to go South. Hot tub and Dallas TD.
  8. Flipping back and forth between VMA's and Redskins. Both doing good so far. Except for Taylor.
  9. For goodness sake - can the UK's goalie come play for Slovenia please.
  10. @benpolitico www.city-dogs.com - (202) 234-9247 - they are very good and will give you a report card on how the dog did while boarded.
