Speciation

Wow, just overnight, it seems, President Obama has changed his stance on same-sex marriage. The President likened his change to "evolution"... he has evolved from Homo phobicus through the transitional form Homo donascdontelicus to Homo sapiens. I'd like to think that the final speciation event took place last night... in my mind's eye, I picture the President picking up an old, lovingly worn copy of Where the Wild Things Are and saying, "Fuck the bigots, I'm doing this for Maurice."

Obviously, the fight is far from over, but there's some cause for celebration. How about a splendidly goofy dance number from former Buzzcock Pete Shelley?

I wish.

He's doing it for Maurice, because he speaks of the pompatus of marriage!

LOL!

I'd like to hear Obama sing that at his next function.

"Some people call me the Usurper.
Some call me the Gangster Who's Dark.
Some people call me O-bot,
'Cause I speak of the pompatus of Marx."

I am just ROFLing watching the rightwing assholes go into vapor lock on it.

I think Bill Donohue may have an aneurysm.

It would be too much to hope for a shred of self-awareness in Bill so that he realises what a wizened up sad excuse of a person he is, and dies.

Also, Great Orange Satan has had a couple of interesting analyses; one indicates that Obama will pay little political price for it (42% of people opposed to gay marriage already thought he supported it), and that it puts Rmoney in a nice little pickle: the BaseBigots will not let him get away by ignoring it, and if he goes anti-gay strong enough to satisfy them, he looks terrible to the general populace, who are widely in favor of gay rights.


Obama has a lot of corporate suck, but this is a good thing. Some will say too little too late, but he is still the first prez to ever come out in favor of gay marriage.

Also, nice way to commandeer the news cycle.

I love the Commodore PET. And Homosapien is a great song.

Some might even say he did it because some of his big donors told him they wouldn't support him if he didn't, zrm.

Don't care why he did it, Mr. Cynical. The effect is the same.

Hey, that's a catchy song, B^$. That being said, i am VERY concerned about the head to body ratio on that guy. Wowee! Lollipop-Dude!

Careful, VS. it starts with first wave punk/pop music, and before you know it, you're into the Mekons; then the heavy stuff: The Smiths and the Field Mice.

I rate for the Buzzcocks, of course.

I said it was catchy, I didn't say I was rushing to download it. I think I'm safe!

I think we are all relieved.
