The decision handed down today by the NJ Supreme Court is fairly clear: gay couples must be given all of the benefits of marriage, but the state is not required to allow gay marriage. AP gets it. Fox News gets it, A Google News search will show dozens of headlines saying that the court has stopped short of requiring marriage rights. So what is UP with CNN.com?

I cannot really quote from this article on cnn.com without distorting its overall implications but to summarize:

1. The same thing already happened in 1983 when a conservative Republican got caught with a female page and a liberal homo Democrat with a male page.

2. The Republican repented and lost; the Democrat selfishly declared a special homosexual right to molest pages so Massachusetts reelected him.

3. Following that model, Republicans (who may be the victims of a deliberately timed political smear) could (tragically!) lose because "values voters" are the only ones who care enough to protect the children. You see, they are simple folk, bless them, who are sometimes too good and pure for their own good. And if they stay home... only calculating perv-loving Democrats will be left to vote.

Read it and see if I have done it justice.

Also, there is a poll to freep.

by Jonathanonymous

Despite a desperate propoganda push from Disney/ABC, more Americans now blame the Bush Administration for the attacks of September 11th than ever before

"Asked whether they blame the Bush administration for the attacks, 45 percent said either a "great deal" or a "moderate amount," up from 32 percent in a June 2002 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll."

Why does America hate America?

History is written by the winners, and its not looking good for Bush & Co. In 30 years, when he has clinched the title of "Worst President Ever" in popular memory, what might a "dramatization" of the Bush years look like? Here are some scenes that have been criticized for being "fictional composites"

While I am generally turned off by Lou Dobbs and his anti-immigration rantings that sometimes sound more than a little racist, he has his finger to the pulse of a significant segment of American society. His Wednesday Op-Ed on cnn.com may suggest a great way to frame the immigration debate, and indeed, the entire election.

Love the Govs (WSJ poll)

by Jonathanonymous

There is a lot of polling data flying around about the 2006 races and it ranges from moderately hopeful, to wildly promising. But with all of the hubub over the BIG QUESTION of whether the Dems can defy the odds and take back Congress, it is easy to miss the overall shape of the governor's races. An updated infographic from the WSJ paints a very pretty picture.
