Over at The Washington Post, Columnist Dana Milbank has a go at the White House over the President's "evolving" position on same-sex marriage. This little tempest in a teapot is as a result of Vice President Joe Biden on a Sunday TV Talk Show, saying he had no problem with same-sex marriage. As a result, the Press went after Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney on the status of the President's position.
The cynics might say that the President is trying to avoid taking a position so as to avoid alienating some segments of the voting public. That would suggest that those in the know believe that after the President wins reelection♠ he will be free to do as he wishes, accepting that he is going to disappoint some who voted for him in November. The cynicism.
Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, does applaud the fact that Democrats at least believe in evolution. I guess that is based on the fact that some Americans don't believe in evolution.
I note that the Black Christian Internet Network has taken note of this.

♠ In a somewhat edgy comment at another post on this blog, Jack Mitchell of Left in Lowell has assured us that the Presidential—the US Presidential—Election is basically over and Romney will lose. Notwithstanding, I still plan on voting in November and so should you.
