Moral Contradictions

Pragmatism abounds...

Two quotes in a day on why I blog. From Jack Cafferty on CNN in response to the Senate debating and voting on a marriage amendment bill that has no chance of passing (via Crooks and Liars):

This is all being done by the republican majority in an effort to appeal to Right-wing nuts in the Republican Party ahead of the upcoming mid-term elections. Ignore all of the pressing issues facing the country, and instead go grovel at the feet of the lunatic fringe. Senator Frist should be very proud of himself. That's leadership. Here's the question: Is now the time for the Senate to consider a constitutional Amendment on gay marriage?

Will the religious right recognize that empty pandering is just that? Will they realize that a few "minor" issues such as ethics, the NSA scandals, corporate responsibility, the squeezing of the middle class, and Medicaid/health insurance might be a better use of Congress' time?
