Is anyone really surprised by the fact that President Obama came out of the closet for gay marriage? What was most surprising is when he explained how his position (supposedly) “evolved,” by talking to his wife and daughters.

These types just aren't capable of referring to evolution in any form it takes without qualifying it in some way. Somebody needs to learn this chick that although Darwinian evolution is obviously untrue and came flying out from Satan's vas deferens, evolution itself is a well-established concept and can be used when talking about things that don't necessarily make the baby Jesus cry, such as ideas and opinions.

I think it may be a type of Tourettes, or a new superstition affecting the religious right: if they say 'evolution' without simultaneously sneering, God might not be paying attention, think they believe in it and send them to Heck. "That's right, young Bristol: H E C K. Heck!"

You see the same thing when they say 'liberal', 'socialism', 'Obamacare' or any other thing that Jesus would have stood foursquare against. Their heads must jus'bout explode if they ever have to say 'charity'.

Other than that, I say cut the girl some slack. After all, she's named after a bosom. giggles
