Although much of America was less than ebullient today about the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage, some folks were, so to speak, over the rainbow about it.
The latter group included Betsey Stevenson, an official on the Council of Economic Advisers, who commemorated the historic ruling by tweeting an image from last week of the White House with double rainbows over it.

To be sure, the official White House tweet about the ruling has made more of a splash, for obvious reasons.

But it’s Stevenson who gets LU’s Tweet of the Day honors. Her tweet more clearly plays up the counterpoint between the Biblical account of God’s promise about the rainbow, after the flood described in Genesis, and the use of the rainbow as a symbol for today’s gay-advocacy movement.
Readers are at liberty to ponder these points, or not, as the muse strikes them.
Meanwhile, the White House continues its celebration of the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling this evening with a rainbow-themed illumination of the mansion. Exit question: If Islamic State — or Anjem Choudary, or Iran’s mullahs — manages to put the flag of Islam up over the White House some day, will it even matter?
