A White House/gay boycott and the abolition of marriage: Will Jill Biden go out with me?
(Page 2 of 6)
North Carolinians have a different point of view. Considerably.
So, again, the obvious. If both Obama and Biden are now supporting same-sex marriage, and gay activists take such offense at those whom they label “bigots” for refusing to support their conception of “equal rights” — when will the calls to boycott North Carolina spread beyond Roseanne Barr? When will the Obama White House be pressured by gay activists to instruct the DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to pull the plug on a convention that will surely pump millions of dollars into the North Carolina economy? North Carolina — a state that must surely now be seen by gays and the Times as a hot bed of bigotry and thus in need of moral shunning and financial boycotting?
Does the Obama campaign plan to insult North Carolinians — or court them with a multi-million dollar convention because without North Carolina they may well lose the White House?
Uh-oh. Can you say “horns of a dilemma”?
There’s also something else at work here.
How shall I begin? OK…. this way.
Jill Biden is hot.
And she’s available.
I know, I know. She’s “married” to Vice President Joe Biden.
But who cares about that? Certainly not her “husband.”
With Vice President Biden’s endorsement of gay marriage, Mr. Biden has done two things.
Yes, he’s just made life even more difficult in this re-election year for President Obama, forcing the President’s hand and raising the issue of moving the DNC convention out of North Carolina. But for all the hoopla in political circles, that’s small potatoes. Very small.
The really big news here — and it is really, really big news — is that this gaffable Veep has actually done something of major cultural and historic importance in pushing Obama to a place he had clearly avoided up until now.
For the first time in history, both the President and Vice President of the United States have opened the door wide to the idea of the abolition of marriage. Not simply marriage between one man and one woman, but marriage period.
In fact, Joe Biden has become the second vice president — the second after and including the Republican and conservative Dick Cheney— to put the official vice presidential seal of approval on ending the institution of marriage as we know it.
