Last night when I should have been sleeping, I was trolling msnbc.com (a new unfortunate habit!) and wound up watching the President’s speech to journalists.
President Obama was riffing (which is fairly amusing to see) about himself, his gorgeous wife, Democrats and Republicans. He then made a joke about one of his advisors. He said, “yep when he and I got together, he said let’s do what so many partners are doing. Let’s go to Iowa and make it official.”
Your President and mine, making a joke that acknowledges gay marriage in an approving way! Your President and mine unafraid to create a vision of himself as a guy with a male partner! That’s progress that we need.
Tip: You heard it here first, middle and last.
- Gay marriage is not what’s causing problems in heterosexual marriages.
- There is not too much love in the world.
- There are not too many stable families in our communities.
- It’s time to stop working to keep people out of marriage and time to start trying to keep people in them.
Gay marriage, their right, our responsibility. Straight marriage? Same deal.
Good on Barack!
