Fine, so am I. But you know what the difference between me and Joe Biden is? My primary site (RedState) doesn’t go into full panic mode every time I happen to mention that; Biden’s (the White House) does.
Twitchy has the details, and they are hysterical. Short version is that the Obama administration does not want to even appear to be coming out* in support of same-sex marriage in any way, shape, or form… and the administration will almost happily offend gay and gay-friendly groups in their hasty scramble to backtrack from Biden’s statements. The administration’s immediate response is being pretty bare-faced in its essential contempt for liberal pro-same-sex marriage supporter; it basically boils down to “We’re going to pretend that Biden never endorsed SSM. Status quo! Status quo!”
Fortunately, I am a conservative (well, quasi-libertarian) pro-same-sex marriage supporter, so this one-step-forward, twenty-paces-and-dive-down-a-mineshaft-back doesn’t really offend me. I wasn’t really planning on expecting any movement from this (frankly, cowardly) administration on the subject anyway…
