Holding Office has become only a place to sit while buying votes to KEEP that Office.
True dat. Portman's sellout fits right in with Pat Cadell's comments about how the RINO party has been lost to career pols who care only about hanging onto power.
However, I think Portman's position is similar to that of many weak-minded people. The gay lobby is gaining a foothold everywhere because parents don't want to think badly of their homosexual offspring. Churches are caving on the issue because parents don't want to think of their homosexual sons and daughters suffering eternal torment; so they change God's rules to something kinder and gentler.
Whatever they THINK will get them re-elected, and covering their closet-issues that come forth to protect from attacks. Sex deviate-in-the-family is no longer a black mark, in Politics.
Lipstick on a pig doesn't matter, if it can fool the un-informed, which is the voterbase today, for the most part. 24/7 State-Run-Media Indoctrination via Progressive Talking Points has dummed-down and fooled Amerika into where we are today......the Constitution is now "Old School", and essentially irrelevant and will remain so with the Progressives'-planted Judges that control the Court Rooms everywhere.
