For all the hullabaloo Fox News raised about the minimal amount of coverage tea party people got for their D.C. protest, they certainly let down the gay rights protesters.
If they say the media has an obligation to cover a large group of angered citizens storming D.C. in order to get their rights, why wouldn’t they give the protest for gay rights large amounts of coverage? If you think about it, this protest was even driven by anger at Obama. This should have been a slam dunk.
But I guess homosexuals don’t make the ideological cut. Here’s a clip from The Daily Show. (Regardless of what I put up the few regular commenters we have will disagree and let me know, so I’m going to keep throwing up Daily Show videos because they are funny.)

|Queer and Loathing in D.C.|
And I don’t want to hear that MSNBC loves Obama and whatnot, I know and it doesn’t give Fox a free pass.
Enjoy some cheeseballs (they don’t exist down here).
Today’s song of the day is “The Field” by Mason Jennings. This is Mason’s second song of the day, and he deserves it. This song is off his most recent album, Blood of Man. This song is written from the perspective of a parent who has lost a child during one of the recent wars. It is truly heartbreaking. There is no overt politics to the song. It just follows how a parent can go through something like this. You may be proud that your child decided to join our military, then a war can change them, then something horrible happens and you never see your child again. I can’t pretend to know what it feels like, but I think this song must be pretty close. One of the most powerful lines is, “If I was the president, if I was that brave. I would take a shovel, then dig each child their grave. The song eventually comes to the grief-stricken parent yelling “I don’t want no victory, I just want you back!” This is how I imagine I would feel, especially when victory tends to be an undefined thing. If you truly pretend to be the parent singing this song, it is easy to be moved to tears.
Enjoy this song.
