Quote of the Day: Obama’s “Absent” War

Today’s quote of the day comes from Jeremy Hooper, author of the blog Good As You. I chose this quote because its funny. When I read it I laughed out loud, literaly. Jeremy often makes me smile with the wit he’s able to add to his postings, but today he really outdid himself.

First; a little backgound. Jeremy wrote a post that that highlighted Rush Limbaugh’s reaction to Obama’s support of same-sex marriage. Below is Rush’s quote as taken from Jeremy’s site:

“We have the President of the United States waging war, leading war on traditional marriage now. There’s no other way to look at this. There’s no other way to characterize it. “Baraka” Obama is leading a war on gay marriage, just like he’s leading the war on the Catholic Church, and the war on stay-at-home moms.” Obama Declares War on Traditional America [Rush Limbaugh]

That is not the quote of the day. Rush’s comment is just the backgound. The quote of the day is actually Jeremy’s follow up comment to Rush’s quote:

I have to say, I actually agree with Rush on one thing: Obama’s “war” on marriage is “just like” the one he’s waging on Catholics and stay-at-home moms.  Which is to say, all of them are absent—they are figments of the imagination of an American far-right that Rush Limbaugh has made it his life’s mission to rile up into a fury.

“all of them are absent” LOL. Congrats to Jeremy for, once again, bringing me some real joy with his wry writing.
