Friday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

I keep thinking about all those attacks during the campaign on Obama’s “associations.” We defended him every single time. But, now, Obama has decided to pal around with a leading homophobe. Reaching out to gay haters is how Obama is showing us he’s different and willing to reach out. You know, I wouldn’t pal around with a racist or an anti-semite or any kind of hater. Those kinds of people offend my morals and I don’t want toxic haters around me. But, I’m not the president-elect and I’m not trying to send messages.

On a lighter note, as they’d say on the TODAY Show, this winter storm whipping across the country looks pretty fierce. Actually, it’s not even a winter storm. Winter doesn’t start til Sunday.

Let’s get started…


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
