Ye Olde Politicize Homophobia Maneuver No. 5, or,
A Call for a Federal Anti-Equality Constitutional Amendment.
That’s right folks! He claims that he will accomplish at the federal level what he failed so miserably to do at the state level. Nee, what even the bona fide homophobe Bush failed to do with a congressional republican majority!
A brief recap: gay marriage became a reality in MA on Romney’s watch, and he and his comrades failed to thwart it in MA with a state constitutional amendment.
But according to his ad, he’s gonna protect marriage from the likes of me and mine, by golly! Throughout the Land! And without being prejudiced!
What remains to be seen is whether the good people of Iowa will see through his act. Are they thrilled at the prospect of marriage equality? Well, their state motto is “Our Liberties We Prize, and Our Rights We Will Maintain”, so you never know! But I’ll wager that they’re absolutely not thrilled at being played the bumpkin fools by slickety Mitt, and having some outsider butt into their state business. What do you think?
UPDATE: Republican Mayor of San Diego Jerry Sanders has signed a resolution in support of marriage equality. What will Romney brand him? Activist Nudge? Or will his Grinchy heart grow 3 sizes today?
