Rachel Maddow: Obama's Inaugural 'Stonewall' Shout-Out was for the Supreme Court - VIDEO
Last night, Rachel Maddow and Frank Rich hashed out Obama's Stonewall reference:
We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.
Maddow theorizes that it was a shout-out to the Supreme Court, preemptive of its decision on DOMA and Prop 8. And Rich believes it was specifically for Chief Justice John Roberts.
