Turncoat Ted Olson wants to don the mantle of conservative after what he’s done?
Barbara was his third wife, so it's clear that his attitudes about marriage and family are far different than those of many people who have traditional, conservative views about marriage and family.
This jack@ss served as an advisor to Rudy Giuliani's failed 2008 presidential campaign, folks. Nothing more needs to be said.
The government should get out of the marriage business, its true. Marriage should be returned to the religious rite or sacrament it was meant to be (apart from a financial transaction which it became). Domestic Partnership Contracts between two consenting adults should be available from the state to any one or all domestic union contracts discontinued and alternative waivers and releases built to accomodate health decisions and inheritence.
As for the turncoat line, that was pretty lame. Ted Olson made a good and solid argument which you reduced to more knee jerk dismissal. I liked Olson when he represented President Bush in 2000. I like him more for standing up for his convictions, representing people who need fair and honest representation and for speaking the truth as he sees it. In the end, Olson will be remembered as perhaps one of the strongest attorneys this nation has ever produced. He ought to get a statue one day for the work he has done (or at least a law school somewhere, named after him).
