Obama Mandates That Gays Can Visit Their Partners in the Hospital
One day our grandchildren will stumble across some crusty old article on Kindle and say, "What? You mean gays couldn't visit their partners when they were in the hospital?"
"Yes, dears," we'll respond. "It sounds shocking, but its as true as my eye color.
"And in many states, gays couldn't get married either.
"And some time before that, women couldn't vote. And there was even a time when black people were slaves!"
"You're shitting me," the kinder will exclaim. "But there was always Madonna, right?"
Anyway, thank you Obama.
You're making us so proud.
I wish I had a boyfriend and he had a hernia!
