totally unacceptable

I’ve been deferential in my reactions to the various selections and trial balloons for the incoming administration. Some are less progressive than I’d like to see, but I’m willing to give benefit of doubt.

This, however, is too bitter a pill to swallow.

In the wake of Prop 8, this selection of Rick Warren to offer inaugural benediction is simply astonishing.

And frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass about who—Obama himself, or some inaugural committee, or both/all in concert—made the decision. It’s bafflingly and insultingly tone deaf, and serves to remind that the degree of importance of the LGBT community to the Democratic Party varies widely, depending on which side of election day we happen to be.

    Yeah, I was pretty astounded by that myself. Tone deaf (and gratuitously so) indeed. Wisely or not, I expected better, and am growing disappointed by the frequency with which I’m having to recalibrate said expectations.
