St. Barack Of Obama, Savior Of Gays
Hey wait a minute! You mean this Barack Obama, who was fairly liberal as an Illinois state senator, may have altered his position on such hot-button topics as gay marriage in order to become a more viable national candidate? It sounds crazy, but it just might be true!
Way back in 1996, when he was a lowly state senatorial candidate with a wife who wore unfortunate leggings, he sent a big long statement to Chicago's Windy City Times outlining his big fat liberal beliefs about various issues of concern to the gay community. And he said this:
"I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."
More recently, like last week, Obama's spokesman Robert Gibbs says he will also end the military's dumb rule where they don't allow the gays to enlist and they fire all the linguists who speak Arabic, because of their gayness. (These exciting changes will have to wait a bit until he has fixed the economy, though.)
So what does this all mean for you, the gays of America? That your suspicion that Barack Obama kind of pussyfoots around the gay marriage issue for strategic rather than moral reasons is correct, and also soon you will be able to go to war along with the obese not-very-smart high-school dropouts the Army currently accepts.
