Op/Ed : Ohio's ban on gay marriage
by kris harsh Friday February 06, 2004 at 03:31 PM

sorry to do this, but it's just too damn convenient for an election season

Hey, what better way to split the Democratic vote than to force the issue of gay marriage in an election year! really, every homophobe in this country (many of whome are democrats) is going to sympathise with the republicans about "defending marriage" and whatnot. not that this could even BE and issue in an intelligent country, it's so obviously a question for the church and not the state.

but hey, black republicans rejoice! a chance to finally attract some black votes. watch in awe as democratic nominees try to woo the blue collar/working class while defend the rights of gay people. see voters scramble to the right in an attempt to distance themselves from the gay-lovers. all over an issue that shouldn't even be an issue.

my hat goes off to the republican re-election campaigners. all that's left is for ronald reagan to die spinning the media into the traditional role of showering accolades on the great old leader and his legacy (that is, the Bush clan). phenomenal.
