I read a story in USA today about the Mayor of San Diego, who's daughter came out of the closet to him (a Gay marriage opponent)and told him about her long time partner. Suddenly he is pro gay marriage, and testifying in the Prop 8 case. Amazing how knowing someone close to you is gay can change everything.

Ya the SD mayor had his own kind of Cardboard Testimony - just at a press conference. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rfea8iEGNw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rfea8iEGNw</a>

Guess it sometimes takes actually knowing gay people and being around them to open some people's eyes.

^^^^ that's a shame huh... Sad that some are so set in their ways that they have to care about what others do.

Yeah our mayor pretty much sucks on all fronts, but I was impressed that he did speak up on the Prop 8 front. It is the one thing I can say I agree with him on.

"John McCain's office issued a statement saying the Arizona senator respects the views of members of his family but remains opposed to gay marriage."

^^^ ha, what a friggin political tool. Nothing like throwing family under the bus for political image.

McCain really is a tool. Real good over the years at playing the "independent" card when in actuality he's just your typical D.C. douchebag.

^^^^^Nail on the head!

I like how liberal causes always feature people with duct tape over their mouths LOL. I remember Martin Scheen protesting the Iraq war with duct tape across his pie hole. Hilarious!

Rob, you're joking right? That's been the pro-life MO for decades. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/4387/770163.jpg" alt="1"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/4387/770164.jpg" alt="2"> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/4387/770165.jpg" alt="3">

I hadn't seen that previously (I don't attend protests) but the pro-life people look just as stupid and ignorant as any other protest clan that uses that prop. Duct tape is meant for fixing chit and duct work- not to cover pie holes IMO.

Agreed on both points!
