It's looking as though America's LGBT citizens are going to be on their own in trying to convince Congress to pass the repeal of DADT during the lame duck session. President Obama will be unable to call wavering Senators owing to an injury to his lip, requiring 12 stitches, sustained during a basketball game.

According to the official White House statement: "After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player's elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the President received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit. They were done in the doctor's office located on the ground floor of the White House."

The opposing player was identified as Rey Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.  Decerega stated, "I learned today the president is both a tough competitor and a good sport. I enjoyed playing basketball with him this morning. I'm sure he'll be back out on the court again soon."
