Why the Sudden Anti-Gay Hysterics From the White House?

I don't know the first thing about Judge Elena Kagan and couldn't care one bit about her sexuality preferences, anymore than I care about Samuel Alito's sex life.

The Obama White House, however, certainly made a scene when it got hysterical over Ben Domenech's claim that possible Supreme Court nominee was openly gay. Kagan's preference is apparently common knowledge on gay blogs, but apparently not something the White House wants broadcast.

Domenech eventually retracted his claim under pressure, but not before vehement White House denials made it appear that a charge of being gay was on par with child molestation.

I'm not really sure what message the Obama Adminstration is trying to send by telling everyone they support gay rights on one hand, only to turn around and make being gay sound like the most objectionable sin possible on the other.

At the very least it is bad optics, and quite possibly, evidence of their own underlying bigotry.

Is there any hypocrisy we should not come to expect from this WH? Or, at a deeper level, is this evidence of how desperate the WH has become - afraid that they lack the political muscle (after a mere 18 months) to push through a lesbian candidate to the SCOTUS despite big majorities? Watching the hard left 'GLBT' crowd abandon BHO will be such delicious fun ...

Watch - within several weeks the narrative will be that Judge Kagan was picked because she was a lesbian, in order for the WH to get another diversity "first".
