He Isn’t Happy, But Rush, (I’m so Wrong, I’m Right), Limbaugh, Concedes Gay Marriage
Rush Limbaugh is a liberal’s best source for one-liners. He says so many ludicrous things on his radio show, I could fill a column with the material each day.
On his Thursday radio broadcast, he was forced to surrender on at least a single issue. No matter what the Supreme Court does, legalization of same-sex marriage in this country is “inevitable,” he said, during his Thursday broadcast.
“The issue is lost,” he said. “I don’t care what the Supreme Court does. This is inevitable. And it’s inevitable because we lost the language on this.
“As far as I’m concerned, once we started talking about gay marriage, traditional marriage, opposite-sex marriage, same-sex marriage, hetero marriage, we lost,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “It was over.”
Well, as his misguided “fans” will tell you, and show you with their bumper stickers, “Rush is always Right”. So a battle for equality for all citizens has won a battle.
The original Republican battle against same-sex marriage was to appease their “base”. Whether they were personally for or against it didn’t matter, getting elected did.
I found 3 perfect definitions of the word “politician”.
n. One who is actively involved in politics, especially party politics.
n. One who holds or seeks a political office.
n. One who seeks personal or partisan gain, often by scheming and maneuvering.
This is what we have in Washington, we do not have Democrats, Republicans, or Representatives, we have politicians.
Mike Huckabee, who is more of a religious zealot than a politician, had an honest statement about Republicans who have changed their position on same-sex marriage.
When asked by Newsmax.com whether he thought Republicans may eventually punt on the issue, Huckabee responded, “They might. And if they do, they’re going to lose a large part of their base because evangelicals will take a walk.”
That’s what’s important, not doing the right thing, or believing in the Constitution, or protecting the rights of all people, it’s getting votes.
It’s hard for me to agree with Limbaugh on whether it’s night or day, so admitting he’s right about something is not easy for me to do. America has changed, and those who cannot change with it will reside in a country that exists only in the past, not the present or future.
If I can change in my mid-sixties, anyone can, if they want to. But, I’m not celebrating yet. Unlike Rush, I have been known to be wrong.
