Bill Maher Nailed It

On Friday's episode of HBO's Real Time, Bill Maher summed it up when he said Dick Cheney and the state of Iowa are far to the left of Obama when it comes to same-sex marriage. That's fucked up.
Also mentioned on the show was women from NYC and Los Angeles with troubled pregnancies having to fly to Wichita, Kansas for a third trimester abortion.
At this rate, the Midwest may soon become the bastion of progressiveness both coasts claim to be.
Obama, who was elected largely as an agent of change, needs to get his ass in gear and make some changes in America's social attitudes.
Iowa and Kansas should not be showing him the light.
Dick Cheney should not be schooling him on basic civil rights.
It's outrageous.

As HUGE an Obama supporter as I was, I am beginning to wonder how much of The Politician he has in him.

How many of his campaign promises were the usual bullshit we're so used to from our candidates?

The pessimism that ruled my life until his candidacy is slowly creeping back in and chanting an old Roger Daltry mantra

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

I'm holding on to a glimmer of hope but I'm with JimBob, my tolerance clock is about to run out.

Spousie and I think that Obama learned something from Clinton's gays in the military effort. Nationwide gay marriage is probably better as a second term objective.

Besides, I don't want him to get killed.

I third JimBob's pov as well. The Big O is a politician first and foremost.

When I heard that they were representing Bush's pov on a DADT case before SCOTUS I hit the ceiling. wtf dude???
