That'd be the point, yes.

From an article about the latest anti-gay-marriage thrust (heh heh), the one featuring Miss California, a spokesperson for the "National Organization for Marriage" (straight marriage, that is):

"Brown also said Tuesday that the group is concerned that people of faith who oppose same-sex marriage are being cast as bigots in much the same that people who opposed racial integration were during the civil rights movements of the 1950's and 1960's."

Well, yes. That is true. Let's just think for a minute about why that might be.

Loved the HELL out of Watchmen. No small task, considering I've been building it up in my head for literally 20 years, since I first read the book. I was not disappointed in any way.

Inadvertant Understatement

On CNN.com's front page right now, there's an article link that reads: "Panel leans toward impeaching Blagojevich." Up top, there's a big red BREAKING NEWS!!!1! banner that says "Illinois legislative committee votes 21-0 to recommend the impeachment of Gov. Rod Blagojevich."

Yeah, I'd say that's a lean.

All else being equal...

Roland Burris might make a pretty good choice to fill Obama's Senate seat. All else, of course, is not equal, and the fact that he's willing to accept this appointment at this time really has to cast serious doubt on his judgment.

I'm the trend.

Since I turned 18, every person I've voted for for the office of Governor has later come under charges of corruption by the federal government.

Best Fantasy victory ever

If current polls hold up (and as I'm typing this, Indiana - Indy-fucking-ana - is finally called for Obama, and North Carolina - good Lord - should be shortly), I will have called all 50 states correctly in our election party pool.

I've said for the last eight years that I'd believe the American people weren't idiots when I saw some evidence to that effect.

Now I have.
