Gay marriage is the most important issue in Wisconsin. Stop eating waffles, Scott, and start debating whats-her-name about it.

"I think the people of Wisconsin would like to hear what the governor thinks and I know as governor I'm going to be clear about where I stand on issues," Burke said during a campaign stop."

Burke on Obamacare: No comment

Burke on jobs: Future

Burke on Act 10: Nothing definitive.

I thought what Scott Walker was doing was respecting the rule of law.

All bloody flags, all the time. Are the people of Wisconsin this stupid?

"I think the people of Wisconsin would like to hear what the governor thinks and I know as governor I'm going to be clear about where I stand on issues," Burke said during a campaign stop."

Translation: Elect me governor and I'll tell you my positions on issues.

Sort of like: "We need to pass the bill to see what's in it."

Non sequitur, even before considering the facts of either matter.

"I think the people of Wisconsin would like to hear what the governor thinks and I know as governor I'm going to be clear about where I stand on issues,"

Just for a start, there's that artful use of the word "and"--as if "and" is the "O-positive" of conjunctions: It can be used in place of all others, as if it's the same, or at least close enough. Except that "and" isn't actually that.

Methinks there's no "therefore" there.

(For example.)

Congratulations to couplets, bigamists, polygamists, incestuous unions, et cetera.

Burke is the one who is "waffling" on equal protection. After declaring her support for normalizing homosexual behavior, she does not have standing to oppose any other union, irrespective of form, kind, or number.

The issue that should be debated is Democrats' selective respect for equal protection. They have a history and tradition of creating moral hazards, beginning with individual dignity, and ending with, apparently, evolutionary principles. As if normalizing abortion/murder on principle did not expose their true nature.

Burke, take the frog out of the frying pan. Progressivism/incrementalism is an immoral doctrine.

Mark said...

N.n. - So I would assume that you also think Althouse has no standing on the same issue, as her opinion mirrors Burke?

Walker is good at avoiding questions, but that doesn't always last. He needs to put this issue behind him quickly, as he cannot afford to lose votes on anything.

It is going to be a hoot watching gay marriage supporters own words used to justify polygamy and incest.

Simply:

gays wanting affirmation of their lifestyle/who they are;
Pushing someone to state their position so they can point out how bad that person is.

It does seem that a lot of gay people are not happy with their position, so desperately need someone else (especially someone in power) to not only accept their position, but totally embrace it. As if they will make their own unhappiness diminish.

its also going to be a hoot having someone supporting gay marriage not support other marriage equality and defend their words. Especially whn those supporting such marriages use the same argument.

Gay marriage is a finger in the eye of tradition. It serves very little other purpose. I don't care if every ugly and/or fat lesbian gets married to another one.

Better yet, wait until "as long as no one gets hurt" attaches itself to pedophilia.

Politically Oh, nooooooo!!!Say it isn't sooooo........

Walker shot back at Burke, telling reporters it is not the job of the governor to rewrite the state constitution to his or her pleasure.

"She needs to understand 'Government 101,'" Walker said.


Whatever doubts I might have had about Walker are now resolved. What a great response!

who-knew said...

Some one should ask Burke what the she would DO about gay marriage in the state. The Governor has essentially no role in constitutional amendments so she can't do much but campaign on that front. Is she willing to tell the AG to ignore his duty to defend our laws and drop any appeal? Who cares what her position on gay marriage is when she is running for a job that has no real ability to change things.

Who is this Burke of whom you write?

I demand he/she/it/they immediately identify themselves and stop this mudslinging at the duly elected state governor! It is unseemly and rude and helps no one.

What?! Burke is a candidate for Walker's office?

Well, he/she/it/they are gonna lose, but I'll give this an Emily Latella "Never mind."

Mark:

The argument not for equal protection but normalization needs to be addressed, don't you agree?

The selective doctrine used to normalize homosexual behavior creates moral hazards. It was not people who opposed homosexual marriage, but its proponents, who have ignored their purported principles, both moral and scientific. The outcome has been selective exclusion.

Yes it will be.
However, it won't be a hoot having to live in the resulting society brought on by those perverts.

Colbert made fun of Walker last night over this.

That 'unintimidated' title is hard to match up against.
