A Growing List of Social Conservatives Get a Jump on Destroying Their Own Marriages Before Same-Sex Couples Can Do It To Them

This is relatively old news, but it just adds another checkmark in the column of why I can’t take social conservative views on morals very seriously. From Ed Brayton’s blog:

It was Rove who worked so hard to get as many anti-gay marriage referenda on the ballots in as many states as possible in 2004 in order to push the right emotional buttons and get the anti-gay right to the polls, knowing that they would then also vote for Bush and keep him in office. It was Rove who set the political agenda of speaking in hushed, reverent tones about the “sanctity” of marriage. And now he’s getting divorced. Again.

And the money quote:

It all reminds me of the joke (and I forget who originally told it): “Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich are worried that gay marriage will destroy the sanctity of all three of their marriages.”

And yes, for those of you paying attention, the title came from this week’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me episode…
