I started to do a post yesterday on how muted the right wing response has been to President Obama’s same sex marriage shift. Back in the day, the House conference would have held a candlelight vigil for traditional marriage on the Capitol steps, protests would have been organized, right wing groups would have leaped at the fundraising opportunity, and the entire wingnut Wurlitzer would have been cranked up to maximum volume. It’s a sign of how far we come that not even Fox News could rouse itself to make a big deal about it, as Jon Stewart brilliantly points out. Watch.
