Obama Has a Lot on His Plate. Maybe It’s Time to Bite Into That DADT Burger?

If there’s one news personality the president listens to besides that adorable Matt Lauer, it’s Jon Stewart. They have even sat down together before! So with Obama heading to the HRC dinner to chat with the gays on the heels of completing exactly zero assignments on his Fierce Advocate assignment, perhaps it’s not Joe Solmonese who should be bending the president’s ear, but Mr. Stewart.

Stewart has been down this road before. He makes talking about DADT, and its non-repeal, a punchline. And his punchlines are funny! Not funny: The carrying on of Obama and his minions about how he’s just too busy for this right now.
