Contrary to the San Francisco Chronicle’s political blog, even if Obama cut a spot for “No on 8,” he still favors Prop. 8 because he opposes gay marriage.
And THAT is why he’s not asking “Yes on 8” to stop using his likeness.
Just another example of political petard-hoisting.
He knows that if he pushed on “Yes on 8” using his mug, it would be YouTube-mining for clips of him expressing his opposition to gay marriage.
