Note from David: Welcome yet another newbie to the pond, Rochelle!

Protesters from a gay rights activist group heckled President Obama at a fund raiser for Senator Barbara Boxer this week. The President shot back in true ‘I’m the teacher you’re the student’ style by saying “do you want to come up here?”

Have we lost so much civility that we shout down even the President? CNN writer, Paul Steinhouser calls it “another sign of the frustration by opponents of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” Perhaps, but I think it’s just plain rude. I also wonder at the media’s somewhat tongue-in-cheek chidings directed towards this group of protesters. Especially in light of the mock indignation leveled at the Tea Parties for far more civil behavior.
