Bleeding Heartland: The Big Lug on Gay Marriage

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Something about how Chet Culver describes gay marriage always struck
me as funny, but I could never quite put my finger on it. I knew
there was some dog whistle politics thing about it, and today with
this whole new gay marriage flap I finally realized what it was.
Check out this quote: "I have said personally that I believe marriage
is between a man and a woman, and I've been consistent on that. At the
same time, I think it's important we let the judicial process work
itself out here," [Culver] said. Do you notice it? The guy never
makes any judgment at all. He believes that marriage is between a man
and a woman, not necessarily that it should be. And, I think we can
all agree, he is correct for the state of Iowa. Marriage is indeed
only between a man and a woman.
