Conglomerate-cum-candidate Saint John the Chameleon has, as is his wont, waffled and flip-flopped and flapped in the breeze, along with the rest of the Democratic Party establishment, on this issue for a very long time.
Today, Saint John faces a test. Either he remains "newly invigorated", and takes for the first time a real, strong, and substantial position on what amounts to the biggest gay rights battle since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, or he waffles and takes one step towards becoming Bush Lite in this campaign.
Here it is, John: the Great Satan in the White House has thrown down the guantlet on an issue of civil rights gaining great importance amongst liberals. Not the cozy-yacht-set liberals, but the liberals out on the street. The real liberal voters, John. We're still out here.
Show us why we should respect you. Take a stand against enshrining bigotry into the Constitution itself, or take a fall as a Bush Lite. The choice is yours. Do you stand for something other than political convenience? Or did Dr. Dean's spine transplant actually assist you in developing real principles?
We get to see just a little bit of the truth about you now. Please don't waffle. I am expecting the worst - you will hem and haw and say I agree with Bush but maybe not sorta 100%, maybe I disagree just a little, the amendment against marriage is okay so long as it does'nt permanently ban the concept of separate-but-equal back-of-the-bus civil unions, not this version of the amendment, but that version, etc. In other words, some out here already fear the worst (Bush Lite) from you. Why don't you take a principled stand and prove us wrong?
