Republicans Still Divide

Of all the important things a presidential candidate could campaign on for the 2008 election, it looks like at least one Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, is still choosing to put opposition to gay marriage as one of his top priorities. Yesterday, Romney announced he will launch a radio ad citing his oppostion to gay marriage. Romney, who has come under criticism from conservatives for his past support of some gay rights issues, says he is the only major GOP candidate backing a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, and he is demonstrating his position by running a 60 second spot in which Romney says, "Not all Republican candidates agree, but defending marriage is the right thing to do." Why this issue you might ask? Romney's new ad is targeted directly at evangelical Christians who are crucial to Republican politics in Iowa. So, another pandering to the conservative, crazy, right-winged Christians! I thought the Republicans learned in the mid-term elections in 2006 that the American public is tired of the divisiveness. Hopefully I am not wrong. Hopefully voters will see through this smoke screen of an issue! Hopefully the Log Cabin Republicans will condemn such nonsense!

Wait, isn't Romney a Mormon?

So gay is bad, but polygamy is OK?

He doesn't practice/believe in pologomy, but I understand your point. I still do not for the life of me understand how the Republicans can support him or Guiliani, the cross dressing Mayor.
