We’re All Evolving

-->
Mittens, Social Issues

One of the most interesting things I’ve seen all weekend is that a prominent Republican pollster is warning the GOP to back off of outrage over marriage equality. Apparently polls are saying gay bashing is not the winner wedge issue it used to be.

John Stewart notes that a few years ago the Fox Bobbleheads were screaming that marriage equality would allow humans to marry turtles. Now they’re saying that Obama only is embracing marriage equality to get re-elected, a tacit admission that the tides have turned.

Still, Mittens can’t find a sweet spot to stand on anywhere. Last week he said he thought adoption by same-sex couples was a “right”; then the next day he “clarified” that he doesn’t actually support gay adoption; he was just saying it is legal in most states, like it or not.

    Mitt’s not evolve-able – but he is download-able.

    “the next day he “clarified” that he doesn’t actually support gay adoption; he was just saying it is legal in most states, like it or not.”

    Serious, long term “lack of backbone” problem– from the bullying on forward. NO moral compass, either.

    For one thing, the difference we’re seeing between the parties is not just support for same-sex marriage vs. opposition to same-sex marriage. It’s support for same-sex marriage vs. an irrational and sometimes violent hatred of gay people. I would guess there are a lot of people out there these days who are maybe still somewhat uncomfortable with the idea of same-sex marriage, but who are even more uncomfortable with open bigotry.
