Interesting how the MSM is suddenly so interested in this issue--last night Alan Colmes wanted to wax sorrowful over an alien that murdered somebody. I think the left smells a wedge issue--they know that Bush loves Vicente like Lindsey Graham loves McCain.
Interesting now, isn't it...this issue has moved out of the realm of fringe and 'net publications, and is being picked up by the MSM...
I think wedge issue is right...for crying out loud, what does the Republican Party think it's doing?
"...I think the left smells a wedge issue..."
Absolutely. This one is going to cost the Republicans. I think we'll see some lost ground in '06, and potentially huge losses in '08.
I don't think the Republicans care. I think the Republicans need the Democrats and vice versa. So, the Republicans are doing their best to keep the Democrats viable.
