Obama on Spot Over a Benefit to Gay Couples

Mr. Obama is in a tough spot. If he supports…denying [same sex partner] benefits to the San Francisco court employees, he risks agitating liberal groups that helped him win election. If he supports the judges and challenges the marriage act, he risks alienating Republicans with whom he is seeking to work on economic, health care and numerous other matters.

Risks alienating them? Roll the fucking dice, Barry. What’ll really happen? Hayseeds everywhere will think you’re a gay Islamic terrorist alien Socialist abortionist? Whip out a stack of Franklins and blow that political capital on coke and whores. Gay whores. Gay whores whose life partners deserve the same benefits ours do.

Is it lost on Obama that, owing to prejudiced laws like DOMA, his own parents wouldn’t have been allowed to marry in a third of our states until he was six years old? I don’t think it can be. I understand he’s pretty bright.

Gary L. Bauer, president of American Values, a conservative advocacy group, said that if Mr. Obama extended benefits to same-sex partners of federal workers, he would “provoke a furious grass-roots reaction, reinvigorate the conservative coalition and undermine his efforts to portray himself as a moderate on social issues.”

A “furious grass-roots reaction?” You mean like a “[S]econd American revolution” or something? Somebody call the cops (only hide the coke and gay whores first).

Fuck the bigots and fuck their votes. It’s 2009, and this is no less than a moral imperative.
