Politics Make My Head Hurt

I tend to keep this blog fairly politic-free, but I'm surly this morning. Consider that your warning.

It's damp here in Southern California - which means I woke up with a headache this morning. Seriously, how exactly does this happen? I mean, we had the AC on last night - so it's not like I was breathing in damp air all night long. Why the headache?

I suspect it's because of the current gay marriage fiasco going on in Congress. By now we all know that the Senate didn't pass it. The only reason I bring this up is because I read this quote that left me dumbstruck:

"This is a big issue for lots of our members and frankly for lots of Americans," House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio told reporters on Tuesday.

Um, it is? Really?! Color me crazy but I think the bigger issues at hand are the fact that Bin Laden is still floating around somewhere, there was a terrorist plot to behead the Canadian prime minister (gee ya think he's sleeping easy?), Iraq continues to spiral into a nightmare, and I still haven't seen pictures of baby Shiloh yet.

Silly me, compared to all that, gay marriage is a tad further down on the list.

But this is America - and we're a country populated with people who have the attention span of fruit flies. Think those folks down in New Orleans give a shit about gays marrying each other? I'm thinking probably not.

I had a very similar post (down to the warning in the beginning) a few weeks ago.
