Its a Gay Thing

Virginia Postrel has a piece on how much Americans hate gays. 60% favor gay marriage or civil unions. She says even in the South the number is 49%.

David Brooks's smart and much-linked-to column on Saturday pointed out the same thing, of course. And this piece by Gary Langer, director of polling for ABC News, was a big "I told you so" about the problem of incredibly vague language in the exit polls. Dianne Feinstein and Bill Bennett may think "moral values" means "opposition to gay marriage," but it's just as likely--more, in my opinion--to mean "the candidate's character."
She goes on to point out the Democrats lack of moral courage:
As for gays, the most depressing aspect of the election is how quickly big-shot Democrats want to run away from gay-friendly policies.
Virginia has more to say on the subject of statistics on gay marriage issues here.

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searcing for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a mens male enhancement reviews related site pertaining to mens male enhancement reviews related articles.
