Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Please Stop

Joe Biden did not "force the President's hand" on marriage equality.  He floated a trial balloon.  So did Arne Duncan a few days later.  They prepared the ground.

And it's not a coincidence that this happened after Amendment One either.  And it's not "eleven dimensional chess" either.  They knew Amendment One was going to pass a week ago.  David Gregory just happens to ask Biden a question about marriage equality on Sunday?
