Since President Barack Obama made his support of gay marriage public, many media figures have been, predictably, annoyingly melodramatic.
But there are some that are so incredibly obnoxious and silly about it that I can hardly breathe anymore. Here's three of the absolute worst reactions to Obama's evolution:
1. Openly gay New York Times columnist Frank Bruni said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" last week that he got "teary" when he heard the news. Gag.
2. On "The View" today (yes, I watched) openly gay finance expert Suze Orman said she thought she "was going to die on the spot" when she heard the news. Naturally she followed up by asking everyone who is gay and those who know someone who is gay to "please vote for Obama" to "make [gay marriage] a reality." Even though Obama said he planned on leaving gay marriage up to the states. Gag. Gag. At least she didn't get "teary."
3. This is seriously the worst. On NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show" Sunday, Daily Beast columnist and author of the infamous "First Gay President" Newsweek cover story Andrew Sullivan (also openly gay) actually choked up while saying all of this:
"It's hugely important and to tell you the truth I didn't realize how important it would be until it happened. Beforehand I was kind of steeled; I was like, 'I don't care, he's going to disappoint us again.' And then I sat down and watched our president tell me that I am his equal. And that I'm no longer outside; I'm fully part of this family. And to hear the president, who's in some ways a father figure, speak to that-- the tears came down...
Gag. Gag. Gag. VOMIT!
"This family"?! "A father figure"?! "No longer outside"?! Vomit.
Have a little pride, for God's sake. Show some sense of self-worth that doesn't stem from the approval of surrogate daddy. Show some sign that you had a life before Obama finally let you in his "family."
Okay I'm done.
Watch the lowest form of humanity here:
