11. It seems like being "anti-Obama" for whatever real or imagined slight is considered "street cred"

for some people. For Republicans, they practically have to be to keep the teabaggers and Rush Limbaugh from going crazy ON them. Some progressives seem to oppose President Obama just so that they can tell themselves (and others) that they've not "sold out" their principles or that they are not being cheerleading "Obamabots". I fail to see what this person who heckled Michelle Obama thought that she might get out it. Well, I guess that she DID get some publicity and a newspaper column out of it but it's not going to really change anything in regards to advancing LGBT equality. Getting people out to the polls and getting a bunch of pro-LGBT equality candidates elected OTOH will and we DO have an election coming up next year that she could be working on. Going after people whom are already on your side just seems like a dumb strategy. Going after and getting rid of opponents is a much much better one IMHO.
