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.

Marriage Equality: The Chicken And The Egg

Democrats are rapidly lining up behind marriage equality.  But the numbers are so confusing and spotty it's tough to tell whether Obama's shift changed minds or whether the population's shift changed his mind.

My guess is that Obama's change led to some changes in the African-American community, but aside from that his position is meaningless.

As an aside, after watching Mitt's press guy meltdown in Poland, all I'm waiting for is Mitt's "Hey, do you guys put screendoors on your submarines?" gaffe when he meets the Polish Defense Minister.
