White House Closets Media at DADT Protest‎‎: Rachel Maddow's 'Lafayette Tapes' Forthcoming!

I love Andrew's tweet:


And at Big Journalism, "Media Kept Well Away as Obama Clashes With Gays and Lesbians in Washington, L.A.":

The fact of the matter is that many Americans have soured on President Obama, including those who once were his passionate supporters – the left-wing gay community. I never quite understood their support, since Obama’s views on gay marriage (the Gay Left’s litmus test) are the same as former President Bush’s — and Bush was seen as the devil incarnate. But that being said, there are enough bodies under the Obama bus to have tipped off The Gays that they’d be next.

Looks like some gay Americans aren’t playing their part in the Obama script now. It is just sad that the White House increasingly looks like the Soviet-era Kremlin when it comes to tolerating different points of view.
