Not quite an open thread, but definitely open thready (something coming up on Saturday, I promise). This NYT piece on the back stage events about Obama and gay marriage is fascinating. It is amazing to me the number of Republican stalwarts (Melhman, Olsen) that appear in this narrative. I suppose that if you didn't like Obama and Biden, this will only solidify your dislike, but for me, the attempt to cope with what they see and how they are (and they think they are) expected to behave is compelling.
