I mean I know how hard it can be to resist those freshly polished legs of your dinning table that seem to go on forever simply blending into it's sexy... sorry I forgot what I was talking about there for a minute just thinking of the romantic possibilities of my dinning set. I hope that this proves to be a political tipping point that undoes her campaign as it forces people to realize how utterly absurd and destructive this kind of thinking is not only to the gay community but to the ability of us as a country to have an intelligent civilized debate on these issues, as it is impossible to do so when you are boiling down the basic human rights of a whole group of people to the absurdity of forming legal (and social) contracts with inanimate objects. In the process of doing so instead of allowing for a true debate on the subject they have instead turned it into a debate of little sound bites that have little if anything to do with the actual issue, but instead create an polarized environment where logic is wholly unwelcome and when it dose make an appearance is totally drown out and ignored in favor of the absurdities of sound bite political debate.
It is ever clear that not only as citizens do when need to return to the table of rational debate and the ability to disagree with each other in a civilized manner, but that we need to hold our news media to the same standard. As citizens we need to make it clear that simply having two sound bit spitting extremes from both sides of an issue "debate" by trying to out shoat absurdities over each other is not actual balanced coverage of an issue. Instead what we need is for them to bring on more moderate at least rational people from each side and allow them to politely debate each other, along with the press doing some digging into the issue and the assertions of each side and the actuality of each sides assertions. Then they need to take those findings and present them to the public, it is then up to the public to draw their own conclusion, but they need to at least be provided with the information they need to draw one as well as to be able to see threw the talking points sound bites BS that both sides of an issue tend to spew. The media needs to be less of an airing board for political divides and instead be an airing board for facts and truth.
Until we get to the point where the press once again starts reporting and actually doing its job, and the citizens say they are fed up with only the loudest of the bunch getting heard we will continue down a road where the debate on each issue degrades into the most extreme and absurd statements from each side being the majority foundation on which decisions that will effect the lives of many are made on, and that is something that all Americans should be worried about.
