Could John Travolta Help Increase Barack Obama’s Marriage Policy Gayness?

This is one that has to be sliced finely: I really don’t care, or want to know about, what consenting adults are up to in private. Hetero, homo, married, fornicating: I will defend to the death my commitment to ignorance about fluids, geometries, participants, accessories, and syndication agreements involved. I don’t wanna know.

But having a blog is about trying to help connect the dots; to raise awareness, even on topics where we lack personal enthusiasm; to organize community information so as to maximize synergistic convergence.

Thus, when American Power has a clip of Rand Paul expressing uncertainty aloud about whether #OccupyResoluteDesk’s view on marriage could get any gayer, I have to point Douglas to Althouse’s recounting of accusations against John Travolta. Not out of any personal, prurient interest, mind you: I’m strictly being a helpy helper-person here. It sounds like somebody could be spreading lurid rumors about Travolta in the name of garnering attention. If you find out, please refrain from telling me. I just don’t want to know.

    Despite the gay celebrations and media giddiness, what exactly did Obama really say?  He just expressed a personal opinion.  Isn’t “leave it to the states” pretty much the status quo ante?  He didn’t say he would move to repeal the DOMA.  He didn’t say he’d push to include gay marriage in the Democratic platform.  He didn’t say he would try to force states to recognize gay marriages from other states.

    Just his personal opinion is enough to make Chris Matthews touch himself on air.  He’s not the King – although this petty, pissy, prissy, pouty, prancing peacock of a pretender to the Presidency seems to think he is sometimes.

    Guess teh gehes and the media are just really cheap dates.  They get to watch Obama eat his waffle before they have to put out.

    John Travolta, a homosexual? Now there’s some shocking news. The next thing you know somebody’s going to be saying Tom Cruise is one too.

    Extremely cheap dates, to assert it’s up to the states is to assert gay marriage is not a “right”.

    “Top GOP Pollster to GOP: Reverse On Gay Issues”

    Pity he wasn’t alive 3 months ago to release the research report “Don’t spend several months cheering anti-women policies, don’t you realise they’re half the electorate and it’s an election year, you morons”.

    This election could be proof we’re living in some kind of computer simulation.
    Against Obama, the GOP has decided to run the originator of Obamacare, who supported cap-and-tax on carbon emissions, who declared he wouldn’t have annoyed Pakistan by killing OBL, who said he’d be a better friend to gays than Ted Kennedy, whose position on abortion is determined on an election-by-election basis with geography as the primary factor. 

    How is this not a computer stress test to determine the breaking point of GOP hypocrisy?

    It’s hard to take you seriously when you start talking about “anti-women” policies. Since the current administration’s policies are generally anti-American, those of us not obsessed with silly identity politics recognize who is more anti-women.

    Your “Republicans in the Mist” approach to life just identifies you as someone who thinks “reality based” means warping your perception of reality to fit your preconceived notions.

    Travolta being sued by 3 masseurs – how can anyone this gay not be part of the Obama administration?

     So what are you exactly?

    Pole smoker who also likes to take it up the ass and who can’t wait for the right to adopt young baby boys, or pick them up at middle school while “teaching” them “tolerance”?

    Feminist supporting half-man who’s allowed himself to be emotionally castrated by his bitch wife or girlfriend who laughs at him behind his back?

    Environazi who wants to destroy our energy future so we can go back to nature, or that is, so most of us can do so while working as serfs for the likes of you?

    Union thug who spends his days and nights figuring out how best to extort money from his union pension fund while bribing Democrat officials and appointees to look the other way?

    Black leader, or follower of same who thinks the world owes him a living because his great great great grandpappy was forced to pick a few bales of cotton?

    Do me a favor, join in the Pro-Euthanasia movement and kill yourself. And if you could kindly take a few thousand of your fellow leftists with you, it would be much appreciated.

    I’m not sure he’s a troll. He’s making points we’ve all made before. There is something of an “Alice in Wonderland” air to this.

     Something about it struck me as a copy and paste job that’s probably been posted in the comments of multiple blogs.
