Maybe you’ve heard President Obama has a new Twitter account? @GayObama has been spitting out gems like “Just met the first Boehner I didn’t like.” and “Things I am *so* over: Ke$ha, Tea Party, cupcakes. In that order.” for about a week now. Some poor sap behind the scenes at The Daily Show is actually crafting the tweets. As it were, the catalyst for the whole thing was something we Year Two folks like to call ‘good.’
You see, Mr. Obama recently decided there was no real constitutionality to this thing called the “‘Defense’ of Marriage Act.” The upshot? Well, for one, it’s a whole lot more likely that Prop h8 will drop off the face of this planet sooner than later. Moreover, the Justice Department is pretty much sanctioning gay marriage, which means it’s only a matter of time before the Congress and courts catch up. That’s more civil rights for some real defenders of the act of marriage–people who still thirst for it, even after Larry King.
Not only has Gay Obama taken the country two steps closer to finally treating homosexuals as equals, but the man’s using his status as appointer-in-chief to break the heretofore impenetrable glass ceiling that has prevented openly gay members of this thing from serving in the executive office. A week ago, he appointed one Jeremy Bernard the new social secretary–that’s the person who throws the parties. You gotta start somewhere.
