At this afternoon’s Netroots Nation 11 panel entitled “‘What To Do When The President Is Just Not That Into You.’
An Obama for President volunteer named Nick Tischda (strangely) approached Dan Choi and the panel during the Q&A was going to get Dan Choi’s autograph on one of the flyers that he had. And he almost got it, until he mentioned that he was against gay marriage at which point Choi ripped the flyer in pieces and threw it down at Tischda.
I was at the panel in the front row and I’ll say with all honesty it was a nice piece of drama but somethings not sitting right with me about this. It is bizarre to say the least
