Frankly, I was browsing my newsfeed for something easy and funny to post when I came across Instapundit’s post on Obama’s Oct. 27 meeting in the White House with five progressive bloggers in which he links Ann Althouse and JustOneMinute. The five progressive bloggers were Joe Sudbay of Americablog (this post includes a transcript of Joe’s Q and A with Obama on the Defense of Marriage Act and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and has a number of comments that are worth reading), Barbara Morrill from DailyKos, Duncan Black (Atrios), and Oliver Willis and John Amato from Crooks and Liars.
Click on the link above to Althouse because I can’t improve on her bravura critique of Obama’s shuck-and-jive replies to Sudbay’s questions.
Last October I linked a post by John Aravosis of Americablog in which he noted that the Democratic leadership told gays on 9/3/09 that now was not a good time for the overwhelming Democratic majority to take any action to repeal DADT and DOMA or do even the tiniest thing for gays — and later wasn’t looking very good, either. I pointed out that gays should interpret this to mean that Obama will NEVER support gay equality and gave the reasons why conservatives DO and WILL.
Updated Sat., 10/30/10: Thank you, Moe Lane, for the link! You are correct — I did NOT vote for that man, Obama. Frankly, I voted for THAT WOMAN, Sarah Palin, and considered the prospect that she would only be a heartbeat away from the presidency to be a feature, not a bug, what with her being the only one of the four candidates with executive branch experience and therefore the only one actually qualified for the office.
