On the gay marriage wedge issue, the smirking chimp says:

"After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence and millennia of human experience, a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization," the president said in urging Congress to approve such an amendment. "Their action has created confusion on an issue that requires clarity."

Proponents of slavery used the same argument a century and a half ago. Just because it's been done that way before doesn't make it right. So a shotgun wedding of two eighteen year olds who will end up getting divorced from their "starter marriage" three years later is sacred, but the union of two ladies who have stayed committed to each other for over a half a century is wrong?

If FB decides to reinstate the account of the former "president" tomorrow, I expect an uptick of activity here for random updates ...
