Support For Gay Marriage Among Republicans Up 24% In The Last Year

A slim majority of Republicans do still oppose gay marriage, but the numbers are changing rapidly per a CBS poll. In fact, 33% of the people who said they support gay marriage said they once held the opposite position. As the Supreme Court begins to hear oral arguments in cases involving two high-profile laws to

Having Solved That Whole Budget Problem, Obama Pivots To Gays And Guns

The Senate passed a budget for the first time in four years. So, you know, fiscal crisis solved. President Obama devoted his weekly radio and internet address Saturday to pushing for more gun control in response to the mass killing in Newton, Connecticut last year. “As a nation, the last three months have changed us,”

George Will: "Opposition To Gay Marriage Is Literally Dying"

I’ve written before, to the consternation of many conservative readers of this site, that the GOP’s on-going opposition to gay marriage is foolish as a long-term political strategy. That’s because younger generations of Americans are either agnostic on the issue, or very much opposed to the idea of the state banning gay marriage. And George

Republican Senator Flips On Gay Marriage

Senator Rob Portman of Ohio has flipped on the issue of gay marriage, going from opposing it to embracing it in the pages of the Columbus Dispatch. What turned his head on the issue was the fact that one of his children is gay: Two years ago, my son Will, then a college freshman, told

"Most Republicans Are Fat Asses"

I’ve got to admit that I’ve given up watching cable news, but this segment from Sean Hannity’s show in which the statement “most Republicans are fat asses” is used was just too wild to ignore. My favorite part is the cigarette getting lit up on-air, but the argument in favor of nanny state laws because

Conservatism Vs. Libertarianism

This debate between Ann Coulter, an outspoken conservative, and John Stossel, an outspoken libertarian, is interesting because it’s a proxy for the rift in the Republican party today. I don’t like Ann Coulter, because it seems she can’t discuss issues without being combative in a way that undermines her credibility, but as someone who lists

If Businesses Or Landlords Are Discriminating Against Gays, Why Not Name Names?

The North Dakota Senate voted down a bill which would have added gays to a list of protected classes (races, genders, religious affiliations, etc.) under state law. Now activists in Grand Forks are going to ask the city council there to pass a local version of the law. I find these sort of efforts a

Is America Ready For A Libertarian Republican President?

“I would absolutely not run unless it were to win,” Senator Rand Paul said on Fox News Sunday today in response to questions about a potential run for President. “But I think the country is really ready for the narrative coming — the libertarian Republican narrative.” So what is the “libertarian Republican narrative?” “I think

Video: ND Senate Shoots Down Bill Banning Discrimination Against Homosexuals

In its original form, SB2252 would have added homosexuals to North Dakota’s list of protected classes against whom employers and landlords cannot discriminate. The bill was amended in committee to remove homosexuals from the list of protected classes and state simply that North Dakota doesn’t condone discrimination against homosexuals. The amended version of the bill

Gay Couple Denied Family Golfing Pass By Fargo Park Board

Sigh… FARGO – A Fargo gay couple legally married in another state says they may shoot for birdies elsewhere after being denied a discounted family pass to the city’s public golf courses. Katy Kjelvik and her wife, Steph Rindy, who were legally married in Iowa in 2011, were told Tuesday that they can’t receive a
