BREAKING NEWS: Obama launches Gay Wedding Cake business
Woah! This is one of those posts where I think someone did the right thing so brace yourselves…
Barack Obama expressed his support of gay marriage today, making the nation collectively reply “ummm DUH”. What, was he going to announce that he has changed his mind and will now execute the whole cast of Glee? No. No man who is that concerned with organic gardening can pretend to be ambivalent about gay marriage forever. And good for Joe Biden for forcing the President’s hand this week to express his real feelings (despite what those assholes in North Carolina said yesterday).
Now, not to sound entirely crass, but the big question has become how will this affect Obama politically during the 2012 election? My guess is not much. Because most voters live in old cardbord boxes, they are more concerned with the economy than the fact that fully-legalized gay marriage would just devastate the New York Times Wedding section. Frankly, as far as I can tell, the only people who this might hurt Obama politically with is blue collar Democrats. However, as we saw yesterday in West Virginia where a huge number of those blue collar Democrats voted for a incarcerated felon over Obama, those people don’t really like Barack to begin with.
