Silent B-J: Why our wedding nights are being met with sealed lips

by Jeremy Hooper

You may love the fact that same-sex marriage is barely being talked about by the two major party candidates or their number twos. You also may think the lack of attention is annoying, considering marriage equality is a major issue in certain states. But regardless of your stance, there's definitely been a lack of chatter from either Team McCain or Team Obama in regards to the marriage bans that will be up at the polls in Florida, California, or McCain's home state of Arizona. The AP attempts to explain why:

EXCERPT: McCain supports the amendments, Obama opposes them — yet the two nominees rarely mention them proactively as they compete for middle-of-the-road voters who rank the marriage debate low on their list of concerns.
"It doesn't benefit either one to promote it for their own campaign," said Matthew Corrigan, a political science professor at the University of North Florida. "You have the economy, the war. It makes it more difficult for social issues to get people's attention."
