Just when the GOP couldn't get any more offensive on the issue of gay marriage...
"It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right. . . . Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife."
-- Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), advocating a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in a speech Thursday to the Heritage Foundation.
I don't see the problem. Surely it's okay for a man to marry a box turtle, since it seems the good people of Texas sent a jackass to Congress.
