Quote of the Day

by Kevin

It shouldn’t be hard for Republicans to see why they’re in danger of losing their majority. Voter anger over immigration and spending has manifested itself in citizen groups patrolling the border, challenging them in primaries, and bussing reporters to the sites of shameful pork-barrel projects. Going back to the story of the failing marriage, one spouse has known for a while what the other one’s up to. The source of her anger is clear. Maybe the wife doesn’t want a huge bouquet and an apology. Maybe she wants her husband to quit screwing around.

David Weigel in Reason Online, comparing the Republican push for the Federal Marriage Amendment to a cheating husband trying to make up to his wife after he’s been caught cheating. Hat tip: Instapundit.

  1. In some sense, I can’t completely blame them. How many states had anti-gay-marriage amendments on the day of the 2004 election? Would Bush have been reelected without that?

    They’re going to keep trying this BS until it stops working. That time appears to be drawing near.

  2. It is silly to say that people are going to vote for Republicans whom a lot of voted for amnesty to turn to the democrats who all voted form amnesty.

    Why leave familiarity all things being equal. If any party steps up this time and says we stand for Americans and what they desire, they will win this election. I truly believe that.
