Love Unrequited

Yesterday, six gay-and-out military veterans handcuffed themselves to the fence outside the White House as a way of protesting the Administration's handling of "don't ask, don't tell" provisions they'd like to see struck down. The police response was to bum rush the journalists covering the unfolding story, forcing them away from the protest in what appears to be a clear violating of First Amendment rights.

The outrage on left-wing blogs to this totalitarian behavior is as shrill as it is predictable, as is the blubbering of left-leaning new organizations. Both campaigned for Obama, championed him, fawned over him, and in return, they've been rejected and marginalized by his Administration time and again.

The sad thing is that you know they'll come crawling back for his approval like whipped dogs.

How pathetic.

The news media is like a politician. Once bought, they may (did I say may?) stay bought. But don't worry, they will soon have a Republican in the white house to try to destroy.
