10:37 am - And from another perspective...
Kind of a companion piece to the one I posted yesterday. (Thanks to laurel for pointing it out.)

I read that one somewhere yesterday, and all I could think was how she complains about Kerry, then that Bush is just as bad...then sells out her [alledgedly] gay friends anyway.

Sell out.

I agree that her logic is full of holes. What I found compelling was the emotion behind her plea. It sounded like she really, really wanted to vote for Kerry but couldn't find a reason to do so. While she had reasons to not vote for Bush, choosing a bad thing she knew was better than choosing something she didn't know.

Logic vs emotion. She went with emotion. Typical chick.

This is why women shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Shouldn't someone like her be making me a sandwich?

I'm curious. Both Bush and Kerry oppose gay marriage. Bush favors a Constitutional amendment banning it that doesn't have enough support to pass in Congress, nor enough support in the states to become part of the Constitution if it did; Kerry doesn't.

So how was her voting for Bush "selling out" her gay friends?

(And that aside, is it requisite, if one has gay friends, to be a one issue voter on gay marriage rights issues, even when the candidates are far apart on them?)
