Obama Only Rides a Pink Unicorn During Campaign Season

R.S. McCain, in feeling the pain of angry gay Democrats as they realize that President Obama is not really the man riding the pink unicorn.  He just plays one during campaign season.  He suggests they abandon their party and join the GOP:

So if this latest knife in the back from your Democratic “friends” is one betrayal too many, maybe you should consider becoming an ex-Democrat, too. I mean, if you want to raise millions of dollars for untrustworthy politicians who oppose gay marriage, the Republican Party would certainly welcome your support.

This other McCain is witnessing right now what we and our blog readers have been noticing for some time.  If there’s a political cost to helping gays, well, then Democrats just jump off that unicorn and pick a more practical means of transportation.

While Republicans won’t offer the sweeping promises Democrats regularly make to gay people, well, at least they won’t break them.  And there could be a little fun to joining the GOP:

Just because Republicans are never going to support your identity-politics agenda doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to offer you.

For example, think of the delicious fun of payback politics, evening the score with those Democrat bastards who sold you out.

Not to mention the fun of coming out conservative to your gay friends and seeing their commitment to diversity and inclusion melt like icicles in the spring when it comes to diversity of points of view and inclusion of political opinions at odds with the prevailing left-wing ethos of the gay community.

But, in the end, it all comes down to that pink unicorn, that image of Barack Obama, presidential candidate, new kind of postpartisan politician with his airy rhetoric and sweeping promises to all and sundry.  Republicans just don’t ride pink unicorns, at least not on the campaign trail.

When election season’s over and your candidate takes office, you won’t be disappointed to find that you just voted for a fantastic image, an illusion really, drawn from the imagination of your chosen candidate to appeal to your childish hopes.

  1. Dan, I love your tag line on this posting. Well done!

    And as I’ve often said on this board, there is a certain Undeniable Truth of Life regarding identity politics:

    Republicans like you for WHO you are. Dhimmicrats like you for WHAT you are.

    Regards,

  2. One of the many reasons I didn’t vote for Obama was his association with anti-gay pastors. Also, I believed “the rumors” and I suspected his self-hatred would color his decisions. Did other people not think this would happen?

    P.S. Why isn’t the pro-outing contingent outing Obama? There’s a much evidence for him as there has been for their other targets.

  4. I love it.

    Yeah, the calls for diversity seem a trifle one-sided.

    …Unless you’re Andrew Sullivan. (Who manages to do it with candidates of both parties. Man, does that guy need a Daddy.)
