If They Can Die For Us…

“Gay rights” has never really been one of my issues, but it’s clear to me that we have a double standard as a society and now it’s on my radar screen. The latest news out of the military seems to place the whole issue in a particularly striking light, and it certainly does merit some mention.

And Speaking of Endorsements

And speaking of endorsement, there’s been rumblings and rumors swirling about when and who John Kerry will endorse over the past couple of days.

Regardless of who Kerry endorses it will no doubt be a coup for the lucky Dem candidate, as National Journal’s John Mecurio points out the Democratic candidates are awaiting endorsements from “The Three Kings of the Democratic Party“: Forget about Oprah and Barbra. When it comes to moving votes in the Democratic primary and shaping the race for the White House, there are only three Democrats left out there whose endorsements could really change the game: Al Gore, Edward Kennedy and, yes, John … Continue reading
