In survey after survey and poll after poll, the results always show the younger generation of Americans is much more accepting of LGBT issues, such as marriage equality, than their elders.
And so we know that in time those on the wrong side of history will also be on the wrong side of the ground. (As in buried.)
Media personality and possible presidential candidate Sarah Palin responded today to the Department of Justice's announcement that the Obama administration will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court.
Palin responded to a question from the National Organization for Marriage, which was posted on the group’s blog earlier today.
"I have always believed that marriage is between one man and one woman. Like the majority of Americans, I support the Defense of Marriage Act and find it appalling that the Obama administration decided not to defend this federal law which was enacted with broad bipartisan support and signed into law by a Democrat president. It's appalling, but not surprising that the president has flip-flopped on yet another issue from his stated position as a candidate to a seemingly opposite position once he was elected."
I’ve been thinking a lot about Sarah Palin lately. It’s kind of impossible not to think of her, what with the new book coming out, and her reality show where we learn that life in the Palin family is like a never-ending stay at Outward Bound.
Plus, she can be found every other week on “Dancing With the Stars,” beaming with pride, blissfully unaware that the dancing chest-of-drawers in “Beauty and the Beast” had more personality and elegance than Bristol Palin has ever displayed.
In Sarah’s eyes, a Palin can presumably do no wrong. Bristol is a fabulous dancer, and if the liberal media claims otherwise, it’s part of a conspiracy against those nice outdoorsy Palins. The funny thing about that is, in her new book she criticizes talentless “American Idol” contestants, saying, “No one they have encountered in their lives — from parents to teachers to their president — wanted them to feel bad by hearing the truth.”
Last night’s "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" highlighted the Republican gubernatorial runoff between Karen Handel and eventual winner Nathan Deal.
The segment highlighted the endorsements Deal and Handel received in the run-up to Tuesday’s vote. Deal was endorsed by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Handel received the backing of “Momma Grizzly” Sarah Palin.
