Cleve Jones’ 11th Hour Push to Get You to D.C.

More amusing than watching Anderson Cooper talk about a gay rights march without noting what it means to him personally is seeing National Equality March organizer Cleve Jones on the defensive.

What’s interesting about this, and many other mainstream media reports about Obama and the gays is how the conversation is framed: How come Obama hasn’t done more? Yes, these reports are required to include the requisite White House response … something about “but he is a fierce advocate” or some such. But the pressure mounts with these news reports.

And, Cleve hopes, with the march too.
