The Gay Issue

Everyone’s up in arms about Kerry’s mention of Dick Cheney’s lesbian daughter at the last debate. Stuart James, at the Chattanoogan, got it right. This isn’t some “tawdry political trick,” unless you count the way the Republicans have turned gay marriage into a central campaign issue, in spite of the fact that a majority of Americans think there are far more important issues to be dealt with (the war in Iraq, terrorism, health care). The Little Bushie Brigade is using this to suck up to the Christian Right.

Need I remind anyone that the official site of the Westboro Baptist Church represents what the Christian Right will do if given the chance? (Warning: extremely offensive Web site for the uninitiated.)
