Commentary of the Day

avwh, on Jennifer Rubin:

Had a bunch of lefty friends for Christmas dinner. It’s really quite amusing to hear them express all their hopes for the Obama Administration, how he’ll have a “clean, smart Cabinet who will run a clean, open government” – as if the Chicago machine and Blago’s seat auction didn’t exist, and Obama had a track record for cleaning up anything.

Even more amusing was to hear them express their gay/lesbian friends’ “hurt, pain & dismay” at Obama choosing Warren for the invocation. I kept asking, how could they be so upset at that? What exactly was the “betrayal”, since Obama has never publicly supported gay marriage? Obama clearly is still “shopping” for a national pastor, since Wright’s far under the bus. The answer: “but gay/lesbians supported him” (ignoring Obama’s position on the issue dearest to them – they just assumed he was lying, in order be mainstream enough to get elected!).

Lots of disillusionment coming down the pike, I’m afraid….
