SunsetLament: The author answered his own question, but it took him to the second page ..."At bottom, though, the reason gay marriage stuck while everything else fell away had to do with winning elections."
imontheinternet: Gay marriage is a huge issue for the Left because it's the first solid win progressives have had in a very long time.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Hey, anyone else noticed that the only thing Conservatives seem to care about anymore is whining?
SunsetLament: The author answered his own question, but it took him to the second page ..."At bottom, though, the reason gay marriage stuck while everything else fell away had to do with winning elections. Abortion, the death penalty, gun control, economic injustice, all that stuff was fraught enough to make you just want to triangulate. Abortion clinics don't poll well. Good grief, even access to primary health care polls poorly. And those issues are as popular as plums compared with the rights of death row inmates and freedom from religious coercion. By 2008, on the other hand, gay marriage was becoming acceptable enough to pose a puzzle for the Republicans. Increasingly bipartisan, it was safe. Is it any wonder that the only other issues the left wholeheartedly and unequivocally embraced were electing the country's first black man as president, and immigration reform? Those were about winning elections too. <B>The left would not have nearly as excited about electing an African-American if he were a Republican. And amnesty for millions of unlawful immigrants promises eventually to put an end to the modern-day GOP."
Jake Havechek: Hey, has anybody noticed that conservative teabaggers are suddenly concerned about the deficit, national debt, and unemployment?Funny, that.
