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.

Hoosier Daddy

Mike Pence should be a yoga instructor, given the knots he's tying himself into around this law.  But what's fascinating is that Pence is struggling to come up with an explanation that doesn't amount to, "But gays are icky and so, yeah, we want to discriminate against them."

Indiana Republicans are desperately trying to keep the law without keeping the law.  They are getting ripped to shreds over this.

Meanwhile, of course, conservatives want to remind us that THEY are the real victim here.

And every GOP presidential candidate is supporting the law.

And Arkansas is about to join Indiana with one of these laws on the books.

What's fascinating is that this is clearly becoming a losing hand, but they just don't seem to know how to fold it.
