Joe Biden had himself quite the time last weekend. The zenith or nadir, I doubt Biden can tell one from the other, of his performances was on Meet the Press. The legacy media spin on his rah rah siss boom bah paean to gay marriage was that he was once again off the reservation, embarrassing President Toonces, whose public views on gay marriage are the same a George Bush’s.
At first, watching this interview, I thought, what the hell? David Gregory seemed to really be asking Biden hard, confrontational questions. It took me a few minutes to grok how rehearsed Biden’s answers were. This was batting practice, not hardball. Then, at the end of the interview came the obviously agreed-to-in-advance question on gay marriage.
Biden was more eloquent than incoherent in his answer, which proves he had to have been coached. Except for the dumb Will and Grace reference, he made his case well. What are we to make of all this?
Biden’s job is to ultrasonically signal to gays that Obama–wink, wink, nudge, nudge–deserves their votes despite throwing them under the party bus along with the rest of the usual Democrat identity group suspects.
It’s hard to tell whether the incompetence of the Democrat media campaign is outstripping its cynicism. Right now, I’m calling it a tie.
Let’s game this out. Now that Obama has had a heart-to-heart with Robin Roberts on GMA. All of a sudden, he’s “evolved” and is in favor of gay marriage. His campaign is completely incompetent compared to Mitt Romney’s. Seriously, I just don’t get it. Here are the scenarios:
- President Toonces was really blindsided by Vice-President says-whatever-the-fuck-his-subconscious-dishes-up-at-the-moment. This wasn’t a standard-issue MRT Biden fuck-up. Oh, no, Biden schooled and shamed Toonces. And Toonces had to scramble to fix it. Leading from behind? Leading with Joe Behiden thrusting from behind.
- Toonces sent Biden out as a weather balloon. That’s what really happened.
When Toonces got his ass kicked the other day in a pro forma primary by a convicted felon in West Virginia (it was 60/40, felon 40, that’s an ass-kicking, Toonces versus anonymous convict) he realized that the protest vote was real, and that’s when Toonces abandoned people who actually get their hands dirty when they work and his campaign decided he’d better secure the votes of men who soak their hands in Palmolive. Biden was sent out to see what the reaction would be. And the Obama campaign was anticipating an ass-kicking in the primaries, which they got. I love it that they’re going down the list of people they can usually count on and crossing off names.
If you’re gay, and you vote for Obama, you deserve not to get married. If Barack is your flip-flopping leader, I don’t care agout gay marriage either. How do you feel still being on Obama’s Pander-List?
Obama wants your vote. He gives no more of a shit about your rights than about mine.
I’m just happy that the Obama campaign is even more incompetent than cynical. Obama is toast. Landslide, Romney.
UPDATE 2016: Wrong again about the election, but right about how feckless and stupid gay men are when it comes to politics.They were more likely to vote for Obama than almost all other demos. Goddamn idiots. I am seriously tired of how stupid and immediately self-regarding gay men are politically.
