Obama: Pajamas Are So Gay
I pointed this out in a weekend post two slots down, Obama is caught between his base and a, um, hard place. Ewwww!
The WH tells the reality-based community to get real. But, hey, just because it was the Right that saw this guy coming from a mile away, the Left is still home to the smart ones, yes? Yeah, we're just the rubes over here. One almost wants to take their side here given that they are bloggers.
Still, we've been telling them they represent the fringe Left for years. But the media was as intent on building them up, just as they did Obama. But Obama can't escape the fact that while they might contribute some cash, they don't represent a large enough voting block to drive policy.
Soon after he was elected I noted that the Oval Office is a meat grinder that exposes what a person is made of – it's unavoidable. The more we learn about Obama, the less we like. And that goes for far more than the gay blogging community. Obama is a player and teh gays got played – not exactly unexpected, that. As I've also said, if this guy isn't careful, he's going to go down as one of the most disliked pols in history. And the arrogant sob's around him aren't exactly helping him out when they open their mouths.
For a more sympathetic view from the Right, see BD Blatt at Gay Patriot.
For a sign of how seriously the White House does or doesn't take this opposition, one adviser told me those bloggers need to take off the pajamas, get dressed, and realize that governing a closely divided country is complicated and difficult.
