Cue contented chortling

I know that I should totally hate the anti-gay marriage lunatic brigade. But seriously, there is so much to love.

To start things off, it seems that ol' Rudy Giuliani (the only national political figure I've ever actually spent any length of time with... he was very nice) has decided to rally against gay marriage.
RUDY GIULIANI is declaring war on gay marriage -- vowing to use his strong opposition of it against the Democrats if he runs for governor next year.

"This will create a grass-roots movement. This is the kind of issue that, in many ways, is somewhat beyond politics," said Giuliani, a two-term mayor who unsuccessfully sought the GOP presidential nomination last year.

"I think gay marriage will obviously be an issue for any Republican next year because Republicans are either in favor of the position I'm in favor of, civil unions, or in many cases Republicans don't even favor civil unions," he continued.

Giuliani, who is slated to address a Republican fund-raising gala in Albany tonight in what is widely described as further proof of his interest in running for governor, said he's committed to the traditional definition of marriage.

"Marriage, I believe, both traditionally and legally, has always been between a man and a woman and should remain between a man and woman," said Giuliani, who has been married three times.

Got that, America? Rudy Giuliani is the new spokesperson for traditional marriage. You'll excuse me for a moment while I succumb to an uncontrollable attack of the giggles.

Tee, heeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheehee!!!!!

*whew*

OK, so it looks like America's Doyenne of Anti-Gay Hatred Maggie Gallagher approves:
Note: He's talking about how the issue plays out in New York. A blue state. Call Rudy many things, but dumb is not one of them.
Hmmmm. Fine, I won't call him dumb. I will, however, call him a mind-blowingly bad presidential candidate, whose dunderheaded campaign hardly speaks to his prodigious political savvy. But not dumb.

  1. Well, Rudy's in good company; apparently, Miss California is against gay marriage too--not saying I agree with them.

  2. Not only is California against gay marriage, I've heard that Mr. Obama is against gay marriage and says he personally believes "marriage is between a man and a woman". Of course, Mr. Obama was in favor of gay marriage when he was an Illinois politician, but has apparently revised his beliefs in order to hold higher office.

    I will grant that Mr. Obama supports civil unions, but somehow, I think Dan finds that rather weak tea, since that is precisely the position of the mind-blowingly bad Mr. Guliani.

  3. Yeah, John. I know that Obama is "against" gay marriage. He's also not going on a big tear about it, unlike a certain decreasingly relevant Republican New Yorker.

  4. Depends on how you define "good company," Mom.

  5. Hey, I'm just sayin'. You can't tell the difference between Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Obama when it comes to views on gay marriage. Both use it as a political weapon. Well, actually, Mr. Giuliani has maintained a consistent stand, while Mr. Obama's depends on the wind of public opinion. He's for it in Illinois, and he's against it in Peoria. He's just like Sarah Palin and evolution; doesn't believe in it, but won't actually act on personal beliefs.
