Instapundit: GOP and Dems The Same on Gay Marriage

He said it:

John Kerry, who Sullivan supported, isn't for gay marriage: "The president and I have the same position, fundamentally, on gay marriage. We do. Same position." Or, as he said on another occasion: ""I'm against gay marriage, . . . Everybody knows that." Are there any Democratic candidates in contested races who are pushing gay rights and gay marriage? I can't think of any. Certainly, as I noted before, Harold Ford isn't among them. And Hillary Clinton isn't beyond reproach: "The executive director of the Empire State Pride Agenda gay rights group has described Sen. Hillary Clinton as 'a complete disappointment.' . . . Clinton opposes same-sex marriage but supports civil unions between members of the same sex. During her husband's administration, she supported the Defense of Marriage Act."

Who am I to argue with the Professor? Maybe he should drop Hostettler a line and straighten him out.

    This may be why the Dems don't want to talk about it. It's an internally divisive issue. It's also a great example of the differences between the "moderate" liberals and the "arch" liberals. The moderates are actually DINO's who, like Lieberman, are actually so mainstream that it is THEY who are selling out the truly liberal progressive stands, such as gay rights. They supported, and continue to support, the war in Iraq, though the effort now is to emphasize the "good" war in Afghanistan.

    I have a very hard time believing that the Dems, if they control the House and/or congress outright, will leave Iraq. Pelosi has also apparently said that Bush will not be impeached on her watch. This is not an acceptable position.

    So yeah, let's talk gay rights, and find out who the true liberal progressives are around here.
