gay marriage loophole

* The Atlantic has a pre-bombing piece on Zarqawi here: "The Short, Violent Life of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi". I'm told it's really good - but haven't read it.

* bill:
"The Republican-led Senate failed abysmally yesterday to protect America from its greatest enemy (even worse than al Zarqawi): gay marriage. Meanwhile a loophole continues to exist that allows the sodomites to infiltrate all levels of American society: it's still perfectly legal for a gay man to marry a gay woman."
* bostonglobe:
""The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."
In response, [Orin] Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?""
yeah - something like that...

* soto on waas:
"1. Is there any indication that Ashcroft shared the information he was receiving from the investigators about their doubts on Libby and Rove's stories with the White House?

2. If he did, and that is a big "if", why would Rove and Libby repeat these stories to the grand jury later if Ashcroft had already told Bush, Cheney, or Gonzales that the FBI and DOJ investigators had already found them untrustworthy?"
* if you aren't reading Eli at Left I On The News, you should be. he is smart - and does what I should probably (try to) do more of (rather than flashing excerpts of others' work speeding by at the speed of blogger)

Yes, you are a flasher Lukery, but not without your charms. Without you we would have to tramp all over the internet to get our satisfaction. Don't stop, oh please don't stop....

Re: flashing

Hell no, don't stop!! I wouldn't have half the material accumulated that I currently have, let alone the sources of info that comprise about a quarter of my bookmarks.

We live in the age of information. You point the way to information we might otherwise miss. Threads in the tapestry of lies, as it were.

You move discussions and links to the FP often so as to promote further exploration.

Most importantly, this is a forum where we all toss about ideas/theories to try and pull those threads together, as it were.

Short form of above: DON'T CHANGE A THING!

Think of yourself as our Editor In Chief, okay? This is my favorite spot for many reasons, especially the road map you provide to the vast blogospere. I think we have a dynamic team here and I'd really miss it if you stopped.
