W.H. aide blasts bloggers: 'Take off their pajamas'

W.H. aide blasts bloggers: 'Take off their pajamas' By Eric Zimmermann - 10/12/09 10:50 AM ET

Liberal bloggers are up in arms over a reported jab from a White House adviser.

The uproar began this weekend when NBC's John Harwood, after reporting on a gay rights march in Washington, relayed a dismissive quote from an anonymous administration official.

"And for a sign of how seriously the White House does or doesn't take this opposition one adviser told me today those bloggers need to take off their pajamas, get dressed and realize that governing a closely divided country is complicated and difficult," Harwood said.

Though the quote seemed to refer to the "internet left" in general, many bloggers are taking the quote as an affront to the gay activists, who are already angry with the president for not pushing hard enough for LGBT issues.

Speaking to the Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Obama pledged to repeal the ban on gays in the military and push to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, two issues where gay activists think the administration has dragged its feet.

"I wonder how the Human Rights Campaign is going to explain how the White House just knifed our community less than 24 hours after he went to their dinner and claimed he was our friend," wrote AMERICAblog's John Aravosis.

For more response from liberal bloggers, see Pam's House Blend and Firedoglake. Political Animal's Steve Benen is upset but more willing to give the White House the benefit of the doubt.

Oh, but I thought electing obama was going to do away with any division in the country and bring us altogether as we all sang, "We are the World".

That IS what he promised, wasn't it?

So they admit to "closely divided" instead of "we have a mandate". Telling.

It's especially "complicated and difficult" when you have no standards, no "right and wrong", no accountability, no rule of law and no accurate history from which to learn.

What's mind boggling and intensely frustrating to liberals is that it's relatively easy to govern when you do have those things.

Closely divided? I thought Obama was a uniter not a divider?

It is on the same page as ‘ CONTROLLED BURN”- which is usually started by ‘authorities’.

No, controlling it is complicated and difficult. Sticking to the Constitution as written, and thus governing as empowered to, is easy.

What I found most interesting about Bammy’s gay conference coverage was that the DBM actually covered the gays’ march on the WH while they virtually ignored the Tea Party express and the 9/12 march on Wash!!!

And they tell us they aren’t biased!!
