As I reported previously, Andrew Sullivan really got off on Barack's coming out: "Barebackers for Barack!"
So now here comes the news that this week's cover story at Newsweek features the cover headline, "The First Gay President."
Politico has an excerpt from Sully's report, via Memeorandum:
It’s easy to write off President Obama’s announcement of his support for gay marriage as a political ploy during an election year. But don’t believe the cynics. Andrew Sullivan argues that this announcement has been in the making for years. “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.” And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. “He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,” Sullivan writes.And don't forget about Sully's response when he first heard the news:
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.Yay, RAWMUSLGLUTES!
Get that dude a tissue! Gotta clean up those milky loads!
And hey, Vanderleun nailed it as well:
Gee whiz. I wonder if Obama will come out or not. He could of course avoid taking a "position" simply giving Andrew Sullivan one hot evening in the Lincoln Bedroom and leaking the photographs to Blueboy.com, but some things are just too revolting to evolve into.Well Baracky's out and proud now.
