Supremes Stop in the Name of Love
Now, call me a cynic (better than those of you who think I make a fitting human sacrifice and I know who you are), but I take no comfort from the idea that the Supreme Court refused to bar Massachusetts from permitting gay marriage.
I'm thinking that by shooting down those crazy liberals in Kerry's home state (that has among the nation's lowest divorce rate, as irony would have it), the Supremes wittingly or unwittingly were stoking the fire underneath W.'s drive to urinate all over, um, I mean, amend the U.S. Constitution to outlaw same-sex marriage.
Obviously, this is a good thing.
As you all know, as a married, straight, fat guy, I'm constantly being accosted by gay men (and easily confused biker lesbians), demanding that I leave my wife and kids, and marry them right away. I get email, phone calls at all hours of the night, even mailings. Oh wait, I just looked at the mail, and that was just my former/future opponent's campaign piece, but you know, he's so hot, you could see how I'd be confused.
So, anyhow, today's ruling should help build momentum behind the "burn 'em at the stake, after all, they're gay!" movement, by stoking the fundies into apoplexy. The bad news for our little American Taliban friends, is that it won't make it through enough of the blue states (Pennsylvania being an embarrassing exception) to be ratified, and W. and Rove and so on know this.
So who is scamming who?
Poor, gullible fundies.
