Furthermore, Hub went on to call the forum a "gay debate." Gee, I didn't know debates could be homosexual.
Addressing the arguments Hub tries to make seems akin to debating a four year old, especially since they use neither logic nor evidence, but perhaps I should since it would provide a service to readers to show just out "out of touch" Hub Politics is. Just read this laughably ignorant sentence:
During the gay debate, both candidates revealed just how out of the mainstream they are, expressing their desires for Massachusetts to become the Gay Las Vegas by allowing our state to issue marriage licenses to gay couples from out-of-state.Maybe the candidates are out of the mainstream for Uganda, but here in Massachusetts the vast majority of people support gay rights. However, it's nice to see Hub using Mitt Romney talking points (memo to Hub Politics: using someone else's idea without sourcing it is called plagiarism, but that's par for the Republican course). Added fun for capitalizing "Gay" for no apparent reason. Note, however, Hub Politics makes a bold statement by saying that being against a 1913 law written for racist reasons flows against the "mainstream," but fails to offer any evidence to support its claim. Are readers just supposed to take Hub Politics' word for it?
If Chris Gabrieli and Deval Patrick are out of the mainstream on this particular issue, chances are it's the mainstream of voices Matt Morgalis (the author) hears in his head. The voices were having a deep conversation with Matt when he wrote,
Strange isn't it that they want the same 87% Democrat-legislature that has gone against the will of the people time and time again to make that call.I don't think a rational supporter of Mitt Romney wants to throw that one out there, but when one has a chorus of voices in their head they may not be so rational. Perhaps Matt has forgotten about his favorite Massachusetts
PS: Hey Matt, don't forget it was Republicans who wrote and supported the Goodridge decision, not Deval Patrick or Chris Gabrieli. Just sayin'.
