Tonight the "Real World: D.C." house took its final bow, but not before the housemates accomplished a few more things: Andrew opened up to the idea of Andrea moving to Colorado, Callie produced a profitable flicka show and Mike knocked a few politicians' argyle socks off with his well-articulated push for equality.
It was also an episode about one-upping your roommates. (Panda may have walked inside the White House, but Mike attended the HRC National Dinner ... where his hero, President Obama, spoke!).
Unfortunately, Mike had to face some haters as well. While at the Equality March, he was confronted with an anti-gay demonstrator -- the very antithesis of what he stands for. Irritated by it, Mike responded antagonistically, but his dad persuaded him to go back and give the activist a chance to plead his case. While neither party abandoned ship, it was commendable to see him handle himself with such composure.
