Politics, As They Say

Makes for strange, ahem, bedfellows.  Like conservative legal lion Ted Olson being on the pro gay marriage side of that argument:

Its frankly not very often that I agree with Ted Olson.  But this would be a classic example of the difference between western-style personal freedom libertarian conservatism and southern style God-gays-guns conservatism.  Or for that matter partisan win at all costs Bush v Gore style conservatism.

Also, as a brief aside, if we were to take his one friend seriously and marriage should only be between people that can combine to procreate, that would mean heterosexual people that are unable to reproduce for medical reasons also cannot get married, and I don’t think the government would want to go there.
