Krauthammer: Nitwit

Writing on polygamy for the Washington Post (aka Pravda on the Potomac), Charles SauerKrauthammer point out that "I'm not one of those who see gay marriage or polygamy as a threat to, or assault on, traditional marriage. The assault came from within. Marriage has needed no help in managing its own long, slow suicide, thank you. Astronomical rates of divorce and of single parenthood (the deliberate creation of fatherless families) existed before there was a single gay marriage or any talk of sanctioning polygamy. The minting of these new forms of marriage is a symptom of our culture's contemporary radical individualism -- as is the decline of traditional marriage -- and not its cause."

This may be, but you'll notice reading the article that Mr. Krauthammer makes no mention of the Republican cult of "radical individualism" that fuels cuts social programs, that fails to subsidize childcare or provide health insurance to the public, and that forces both parents to work outside the home, fraying the bonds of marriage.

Republicans always want it both ways. This is why they're STUPID.
