My frequent skewering of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, for her inarticulate narrow mindedness has garned lots of debate, but one argument rises from the muck and rings kind of true: “Obama‘s against gay marriage too, dumbass!”
Yes, I happen to know that, and in one of my recent TV appearances, I even noted that Giuliani and Prejean, in their “opposite”-only stance, are aligning themselves “with such arch conservatives as…Obama and Hillary“!
And last year, when I hosted a large gay pride rally in Pennsylvania, I even made myself unpopular by stating that very tidbit to the crowd. After an Obama rep got up and tried to garner votes by saying how pro-gay the candidate was, I took the mike to screech, “Yeah–but he’s against gay marriage!”
But at least Obama’s for civil unions, right? And at least he hasn’t made the anti-gay-marriage thing a full-time campaign, as the rabid Prejean seems to have done. Truth be told, he seems to have stated his stance to soft-pedal his real views and get into office, and as the country shifts towards marriage, no doubt so will he. I honestly doubt that Prejean will make that leap.
Am I just making excuses here? Is the generally self-serving Donald Trump right to invoke this comparison? Is Obama as bad as a disgraced beauty queen?
