Pinning a tall tale on Democratic donkeys

by Jeremy Hooper

We are so sick of seeing variations on this line pop up in conservative commentaries:

A federal judge in San Francisco ruled Wednesday that President Obama is a bigot. And not just the president. Joe Biden as well, and Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sandra Day O'Connor. And maybe you, too.

No, no, no, no, no! Because while yes, Obama and Clinton and Biden have, annoyingly, failed to come out publicly for full and unqualified marriage equality, ALL OF THEM are opposed to state and federal-level constitutional amendments that ban same-sex unions! Not a one of them wanted Prop 8 to ever happen, so overturning Prop 8 did not declare any of these three Dems to be "bigots." Instead, it both validated their lack of support for cruel and un-American amendments like Proposition 8, while also sending them more reasons (cover?) to come around and support fully equality under civil law!

It's surely comforting for Prop 8 proponents to tell themselves that even noted left-leaning voices are on their side on this issue. But in this case, they are deriving their sense of comfort from an absolute lie!

Typical.
