Gay Wedgies

March 19th, 2011

Inspired by Slim majority back gay marriage, Post-ABC poll says (WashingtonPost.com 3/18/11). 

“What do I say to the idea that this is a wedge issue? I say ‘Hallelujah.’ The fact that we’ve now evolved to the point where the Republicans are complaining about the fact that we introduced this bill because it causes them political problems is a great sign of progress. It used to be the other way around.” – Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA)


Bullies like to give wedgies, but not to get them,

So the new state of affairs will naturally upset them.


Repubs used “the gays” as a wedge issue for years and still do,

But now complain that Dems are starting to do it too.


53% of Americans now agree that same-sex marriage should be allowed,

A result of which gay activists should be undeniably proud.


Of course, one thing that hasn’t occurred to the anti-gay right—

Dems might just be pushing this issue because it’s right.


But I agree with Barney that the turnabout’s fantastic,

So let’s just grab hold and pull that Republican elastic!
