It’s complicated.

Thanks to the New Mexico Nurse for passing along this story about a reporter/advocate who was, um, forcibly removed from anywhere near where the President might eventually be.

“Lee said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that she wanted to hand Obama a letter urging him ‘to take a stand for traditional marriage.’ She said she asked a Secret Service agent to give the president her letter, but he refused and referred her to a White House staffer. Lee said she refused to give the staffer the letter. ‘I said, “I’ll take my chances if (the president) comes by here,”‘ said Lee, who identified herself as a Roman Catholic priestess who lives in Anaheim, Calif. ‘He became annoyed that I wouldn’t give him the letter.'”

To sum up: a Roman Catholic priestess from Anaheim who reports for the Georgia Informer got in trouble for trying to pass a note to the President asking him to oppose gay marriage.

From Raising Arizona:

“It’s a crazy world.”

“Someone oughtta sell tickets.”

“I’d buy one.”
