Stupid or Evil?
The wrong side of history
Mitt Romney, who added “teenage gay basher” to his distinguished resume of fucking people over yesterday, unwisely decided to speak out about President Obama’s support for marriage equality.
Via Andrew Sullivan.
“[Below], Romney says that we should not discard 3,000 years of history of one-man-one-woman marriage. Ahem. His own family were ardent polygamists only a century ago - and went to Mexican colonies to escape US federal oppression of their version of marriage (which also goes back a long, long way and still exists across the world). Romney’s great-grandparents were polygamists; one of his his great-great-grandfathers had twelve wives and was murdered by the husband of the twelfth.
For Romney to say that the definition of marriage has remained the same for 3,000 years is disproved by his own family. It’s untrue. False. A lie.
Big love, Mr. Sullivan. This hits it right squarely on the bulls-eye, doesn’t it?
Memo to Mittens: This isn’t going to be an argument that you—you IN PARTICULAR—are going to win.
What’s that epigram from Wittgenstein that’s appropriate here? Ah yes:
“Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.”
In other words, zip it, dumbass, before you make a fucking fool of yourself.
(Are the Republicans deliberately trying to throw the election? If so, WHY?)
