Quote of the Day

"I would like to think that fixing [the debt] and saving our kids' future could be a unifying moment for our country and we wouldn't stop our disagreements or our passionate belief in these other [issues like abortion and gay marriage], we just sort of mute them for a little while, while we try to come together on the thing that menaces us all."—My garbage nightmare of a governor, Mitch Daniels, who is a strong contender for the 2012 Republican nomination.

I just can't get enough of highly privileged straight white cis men telling me what the REALLY important issues are, i.e. the ones that effect them.

And, seriously, advertising you can't multitask or hold multiple thoughts in your head at the same time isn't a great pitch for the presidency. Personally, I can be concerned about abortion and marriage equality and the economy ALL AT THE SAME TIME. In fact, I don't even regard them as mutually exclusive subjects.
