Lady Gaga to rally in Maine against 'don't ask'

PORTLAND, Maine – Lady Gaga wants Maine's Republican senators to cast votes this week to help repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays.

The Grammy Award-winning pop singer will attend a rally organized by Servicemembers Legal Defense Network on Monday in Deering Oaks Park, near the University of Southern Maine's Portland campus.

Lady Gaga is expected to stand alongside veterans who were discharged because of the policy, which prohibits service members from revealing if they're gay, the group said. The policy also bars military recruiters from asking about people's sexual orientations.

A proposal to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is attached to the defense authorization bill, which Democrats will try to bring to a vote this week.

Democrats need 60 votes on Tuesday to cut off debate and proceed to the bill, again putting Republican Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine in the role of casting what could be deciding votes in the Senate, said Trevor Thomas, spokesman for Servicemembers Legal Defense Network.

"We need the support of Collins and Snowe and the best way to get it is to be able to be in their backyard," Thomas told The Associated Press.

Collins previously voted for a provision to repeal the "don't ask" policy in the Armed Services Committee, but she wants "a full and open debate" on the defense authorization bill as well as the ability for Republicans to offer amendments, said her spokesman, Kevin Kelley.

Snowe has not decided how she'll vote on Tuesday, a spokesman said Monday.

Lady Gaga recently called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to repeal the policy during an interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Gaga is known for her wacky wardrobe and catchy hits, including "Bad Romance," "Paparazzi" and "Poker Face."

Lee Atwater's friends skeptical about Hollywood movie about him

Those who knew Lee Atwater are hopeful that a Hollywood movie produced by comedian Will Ferrell’s production company will not seek to blame the legendary Republican operative for all that’s wrong with politics today.

Ferrell is partnering with director Adam McKay on a feature film about Atwater, the GOP trickster and campaign genius from South Carolina who ran George H.W. Bush’s 1988 presidential campaign.

“To condemn a dead man for dirty politics by burying his family in mud would not only be hypocritical, but reprehensible,” old friend and political operative Tucker Eskew said. “I hope they don’t.”

Atwater died from a brain tumor in 1991, after famously asking for forgiveness from his political foes, including Democrat Michael Dukakis.

Republican Mary Matalin, who worked closely with Atwater, hadn’t heard of the project until contacted by The Daily Caller.

“Lee was larger than life, but was not devoid of a moral center,” Matalin said. “He was complex and conflicted, to be sure, but not the amoral mercenary the chattering class has long clich'ed. He was deeply talented, insightful, Cicero-like in his understanding of human nature and the intersection of it with politics.”

“I reserve the right to be surprised at the final product,” she said about the film. But her skepticism doesn’t mean she isn’t hopeful. “With this many skillful and truly funny people involved, it should be interesting, if fanciful.”

Atwater’s best friend and roommate from college and Washington D.C., Jim McCabe, said he’s spoken with a researcher for the movie for no more than 15 minutes — something he doesn’t see as a good sign.

“I’m just disappointed that the writers have not seen fit to contact me or any other personal friends. From what I’ve seen on blogs, it appears that the filmmakers already have their minds made up about Atwater and are going to tell the story they want whether it’s factual or not,” he said.

“Lee and I were like brothers for over 20 years.љ I’ve got so many stories about Lee that it’d take a mini-series to tell ‘em all, not a 2-hour feature,” McCabe said. “Nothing has to be fabricated.”

This is not the first time Atwater has been the focus of a film. In 2008, a documentary called, “Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story,” was released. McCabe said that film’s director, Stefan Forbes, spent “countless hours talking with politicos and personal friends.”

Neither Ferrell’s publicist nor McKay, the director, could be reached for comment. But in , McKay, the former head writer of Saturday Night Live, said producers are “framing Lee Atwater as the guy who was the linchpin of the past 25 years.”

“What’s great about that story is, it’s also a really funny story,” McKay said. “Lee Atwater is just a large American character, an excellent blues-guitar player, a crazy womanizer, and apparently from everyone that knew him, really funny, without any moral center.”

McKay, in that interview, suggested the film will explore Atwater’s role in helping George H.W. Bush defeat Michael Dukakis. “By the time [Dukakis] lost, he lost by eight points, and it was all that Willie Horton stuff, the mental-illness insinuations, all this sleazy win-at-all-costs stuff that just became a sort of road map,” he said.As for actors to portray Atwater, McKay said in that “a big, powerhouse actor” could fill the role, including someone like Jim Carrey.

“His name came up early on,” McKay said of Carrey. “I thought he was such an interesting choice. He’s got that kinetic energy that Atwater had. I don’t want to handcuff myself. He’s a busy guy.”

Carrey, 48, however, is older than Atwater was during the height of his career. Atwater was in his late thirties when he managed Bush’s presidential campaign.

Another option for the lead, McKay suggested, is actor Ed Norton.

Young Artists Achieve Records in Phillips's Buoyant $10.5 Million Frieze Week Sale

LONDON –led off London's contemporary art auction season with a compact but spirited sale that brought £6.6 million ($10.5 million), comfortably ahead of the £5.6 million ($9 million) low estimate.Thirty-five of the 51 lots offered found buyers for a 31 percent buy-in rate by lot and 14 percent by value.Three artist records were set, putting a cherry on the sale.

Only one work hit the million pound mark, and that was the gorgeous cover lot,
