The White House applauded National Basketball Association player Jason Collins, who on Monday became the first active male player in a major American sport to announce he was gay. We view that as another example of the progress that has been made and the evolution that has been taking place, White House press secretary Jay Carney said, praising the "courage" of the National Basketball Association veteran.

this sure isn’t gonna sell tickets for the NBA.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hey, how else could a player who averaged 0.9 points game this season and whose career is almost certainly over get props from the White House? This should guarantee him an analyst job covering gay sports issues with ESPN. :)
When will the messiah give himself such praise?
The Obama ‘Gay’ file
Wonder if he will get a WH invite for a little “one on one”????

How can they call it courage in this day and age? It is a badge of honor for the left and the gay agenda.

Still waiting for Barack to come out.
Remember when sober, serious adults were in charge?
Jason WHO???? I kinda follow the Celtics (home town team, not much of a BB fan) and I’ve never heard of the guy.

And the Hawaii state registrar effectively confirmed that Obama’s Hawaii BC is non-valid (revealing that the whole stinkin’ system hid the truth about him just like he hid the truth about Bin Laden’s son smiling wide for the camera after he planned the killing of innocent Americans and gets to waltz scott-free because Obama is his ally....
Aside from all that, we could talk about something really important - like the kind of nightee my husband prefers me to wear.... And I’m sure Obama would praise me for revealing the sexual preferences within our household too....
This world is insane.
Barry wants a date. Reggie is being pushed aside.
It's not seemly.
Reggie Love, for one, must be livid.
Does Obama have a date with him yet?
