Recently, the Democratic candidates for office had to opportunity to address the same sex marriage issue in front of a bunch of gays and lesbians. There was more backpedaling than at a Michael Jackson concert and more tiptoing since "So You Think You Can Dance". Except for the longshot candidates, all the candidates came down squarely on the fence of the issue: preferring "civil unions' over "marriage." This way, they can tell us breeders that they oppose same sex marriage, while still wooing the Gay Vote. This is called "having your cake and eating it, too."

However you feel about Bush, at least he takes a stand. These guys stick their finger in their mouths, then hold it up on the wind to see which way it's blowing. And Kudos to Kucinich and Gravel for taking a stand, even if it costs them votes.

For the record, I support gay marriage. But I'm not Gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

For any of you Lefties who are disappointed that your candidate pirouetted around the issue, there is a reason. Over at 10 Zen Monkeys, they posted a list of issues candidates shouldn't talk about. If you don't want to click the link, here's an incomplete summary of the things to be danced around:

  • Homosexuality
  • Sex (With the exception of Bill Clinton, no President is allowed to enjoy, have, or encourage others to have sex. In fact, AmeriKKKa should be sexless, lest everyone turn into perverts.)
  • Open Borders
  • Failed Drug Policy/War
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gun Control

The list also discusses other things. Head on over and check it out.
