Wednesday, in a historic moment, President Barack Obama came out for gay marriage in an interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts. President Obama would always say his views were "evolving" on gay marriage and gay rights, but it always seemed more like he was waiting on the public to "evolve." Under his administration he watched as the political environment became more favorable towards things like ending Don't Ask, Don't Tell in the military (which Obama did) and fighting the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which under the Obama Administration the Department of Justice does not defend. And for the criticism that has come on the left, that Obama's words could have been stronger, as he's still left marriage up to the states, there's no denying the historic nature of this.

Somewhere, in-between me knitting booties for little Blue Illuminati Carter, the GOP had two debates this weekend leading up to the New Hampshire primary. The first debate, hosted by ABC News had so much promise, starting off with a lot of angry posturing, testy exchanges, harrumphing and epic put downs, but for some reason, ABC thought it would be way too exciting to watch six men on the edge of a breakdown lose their collective shit on stage, so they zapped all the life out that sucker by making the debate about how much Mitt Romney hates "hypothetical" questions about gay people and abortions.
Got an email from ABC News reporter Yunji de Nies saying the segment on Disney's The Princess and the Frog was bumped from this morning's Good Morning America. (Booo!) But it might air tomorrow? (Yeah!) I'll keep you posted. Sorry to all you folks who actually got up and the crack of dawn (like my family) to not see me! Thanks for your continued support!
