  •  Do you really think he's going "Thank God (0+ / 0-)

    for Newtown, which provided a distraction from my budget."?

    You can't make this stuff up.

    •  No, that's not necessary (0+ / 0-)

      He and the rest of us are genuinely aghast at what happened in Newtown.  But the amount of effort going into rallying our side, the barrages of emails and rounding up of support from those who already believe in the cause, is a sign that it is being used as a wedge issue.  Gay rights was a good one last year.  At least our side didn't get major religions to change their theology, as the SBC did, in order to create the wedge.  We just have to open the newspaper or turn on the TV or radio.
