She says their religious values are so wishy-washy that when Obama recently said he had “evolved” (aka flip-flopped) to support gay marriage it resulted in a huge swing in the polls with Maryland black voters here-to-fore opposed to gay marriage now supporting it in large numbers. Well, Rachel didn’t exactly say it that way, but that is what she is saying! Obama says jump and they jump!
Here is how the story from PoliticusUSA begins:
Last night on her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow pointed out a 36 point swing in support for equal marriage rights in the state of Maryland. That swing is from a PPP poll, which shows a 36 point swing from a previous poll taken just two months ago. This kind of swing is not seen in American politics. Furthermore, it’s going to become an issue because in response to Maryland passing marriage equality, opponents are putting the measure back on the ballot, where minority rights seldom fare well.
To what can we attribute this huge upswing in support for equal marriage? President Barack Obama’s public support.
* Lemming according to the ‘urban dictionary’—-
A member of a crowd with no originality or voice of his own. One who speaks or repeats only what he has been told. A tool. A cretin.
I know you all know about lemmings (even if there is some dispute about whether the little rodents jump off cliffs or not). I just liked the definition—tool! cretin!
Headed to the beach? Have a good holiday weekend! (Remember what it is for!).
