President Obama Finally Endorses Gay Marriage, Is Considering Getting One of Those Newfangled iPhone Machines


ABC News rightly treats their huge get as breaking news. Welcome to the right side of history, Mr. President.

My blogger idol Andrew Sullivan is overcome:
I do not know how orchestrated this was; and I do not know how calculated it is. What I know is that, absorbing the news, I was uncharacteristically at a loss for words for a while, didn't know what to write, and, like many Dish readers, there are tears in my eyes. 
...Today Obama did more than make a logical step. He let go of fear. He is clearly prepared to let the political chips fall as they may. That's why we elected him. That's the change we believed in.

  1. Wow Andrew Sullivan - well said!And it's refreshing to see ABC treat this as breaking news as it should be (vs. Lindsay going to court again).

    1. When I grow up I want to blog like him. And yeah it's pretty funny that the WH gave the scoop to ABC News given the shenanigans they've been up to lately. Interesting that it was Robin and not George, don't you think?
