I hereby promise that when Scarlett Johannson and I start dating, I’ll let her drive the car half the time.
“But Merg”, you may say, “that’s an empty promise! You and Scarlett will never ever ‘date’!”
“True!”, I’ll respond. “Just like this “promise” from Governor
When asked about legalizing same-sex marriage after Minnesotans defeated a constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman, Dayton said he would sign a bill if it comes to him. But he said he’s unsure if the Legislature is ready to consider the issue.
In other words – it’s an empty promise. Tom Bakk started weaseling out of all of the DFL’s happy-talk about what a fundamental right marriage is, as we discussed last week.
Because if you’re paying attention to the Minnesota Left, marriage is about love…
…until it would hurt the DFL’s chances in the next round of elections.
“Love” is less important to the DFL than maintaining power.
All of you social liberals, and libertarians, and moderates, and people who bought the DFL/ABM/MU4AF’s gauzy message? All of you instant celebrity drugstore-cowboy pseudo-liberty activists s who said that the only reason to oppose gay marriage was bigotry? All of you gays who keep voting for the DFL?
You have, every last one of you, been hoodwinked. You have been played for fools. I am more likely to be trading driving duties with Scarlett Johannson than you are to see the DFL move to legalize gay marriage in the next two sessions.
Especially all you gay Minnesotans. You are of no value to the DFL as happy, married people. Only as perpetually angry, socially influential votes they can count on.
And that, as they say, is all.
