Some honey for Sharron Angle's wedding, even as she douses ours with vinegar

by Jeremy Hooper

Sharron Angle's 1970 wedding sounds lovely:

Genuinely. Sharron looks pretty. Her groom, handsome. The antique satin gown was surely resplendent. And a honeymoon trip around Tahoe and California of the early 1970s? That's fun.

Unfortunately, 2010 Sharron doesn't feel the same way about my legal marriage:

"I confess that we are a nation who has killed our children. I confess that we are a nation who has walked away from the family and allowed divorce even among our ranks. We have walked away from the biblical definition of marriage; one man, one woman, the two become one flesh," Angle said. "We as a nation have been walking away from our constitutional freedom and relying on government instead to take care of the widow and the orphan...we're saying 'well, the government we have all these programs now, aid for families with dependent children and medicare and social security."

Oh yea, Sharron? Well okay, fine: Your bridesmaids dresses sound kind of lacking. There, I said it. Green organza gowns with green picture hats accompanied by a bouquet of salmon gladoli and fern? Sounds drab. Boring. Yuck. ::Harumph!::

Oh, don't listen. I'm just kidding, S.A. The dresses sound fine, perfectly complimenting your own gown. It's just that your words wound so much, S Dog. Here in a world where we're trying to help gay kids, it's sad to hear of another potential U.S. Senator who wishes to push outdated, offensive biases into the national discussion. Those cut right to the core. So you'll have to forgive my catty comments about your bridesmaid choices -- they're born not out of true style assessment, but rather staunch self-protection against dangerous discourse that cruelly undermines millions of American families! Families like mine.
