C'mon, there's no way anybody could take that obvious joke and play it as straight news, is there?

[Fox News} SAN FRANCISCO -- A member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors consulted the spirit of the late Harvey Milk on whether he should support the naming of a US Navy vessel after the lawmaker and gay activist.

The board voted 9-2 Tuesday to approve a nonbinding resolution urging the secretary of the Navy to name a war ship the USS Harvey Milk -- but only after Supervisor John Avalos used a Ouija board to seek the departed activist's blessing, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.


Oh, FFS.

Now that I think about it, maybe we should start naming all our naval vessels after bands instead of political figures. It could be good or bad, depending on whether you were on the USS Van Halen or the USS Wiggles.

USS Butthole Surfers?

Anyone that took his comment seriously is a moron.

Now, at the risk of sounding like a moron myself...when naming ships, does the Secretary of the Navy actually consider the opinions of bodies like the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, or is this whole thing just a colossally time-wasting feelgood exercise?

I think that works better as an abstract archetype for navy ships in general than as a specific ship.

not sure.

I remember a big stink was made by christians over naming a nuclear missile sub after the texas city of corpus christy. I think the navy still named it that. Anyone know?

But maybe a city council has more influence than a church does.

It's San Francisco. The other board members thought he was serious and it affected how they voted.
