The House of Exploding Cigars finally fired one that would create collateral damage, unlike their previous run of self destructos. Last week, the President of the United States made the entirely toothless statement that he had “evolved” into a pro gay marriage position.
The only correct response to this announcement was: so what? Where are the jobs?
Instead, those who should have more sense, that would be the right wing punditry class, have wasted countless hours on the airwaves arguing about gay marriage as if that were an actual issue, thereby giving Obama exactly what he wants.
Actually, what he really wanted was money from the absurdly overpaid narcissists at George Clooney’s house who have a special reverence for gayness. Obama will get his money from the lunatic class. But, it will be at the expense of a rather large number of voters who supported him last time around.
Iran is nuking up, the economy is swirling around the bottom of the drain, everyone you meet is either out of work or underemployed; our enemies in the middle east are doubled over with laughter at the First Gay President magazine cover and conservative talkers are enabling Obama to make gay marriage the issue de jour. Unless and until such time as we get a constitutional amendment, it’s not an issue for the federal government.
Obama himself admitted that marriage is a state issue. You don’t pick up your marriage license at the federal court house. You go to your county clerk’s office. Some states have a blood test or waiting period. Others don’t. None of it has anything to do with Obama.
For all of the giddy excitement from the gay community, sooner or later, they will figure out they’re being played just like every other group to which Obama has pandered.
I expect Obama to keep lighting off exploding cigars and smoke bombs for cover to keep everyone distracted from the economy. What I didn’t expect was that so many conservatives would fall for it.
