That was more than a little bit shocking ( in a dancing in the streets wonderful way) last night to have Senator Biden AND ( AND ) Governor Palin falling all over themselves to love the gays! What a long strange trip this has been. I think Joe Biden said it, because it is what he believes, BUT, Why Governor " say-it-ain't-so, Joe" Palin?? Her bread and butter is hating us......
BIDEN: "Absolutely. Do I support granting same-sex benefits? Absolutely positively. Look, in an Obama-Biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple.The fact of the matter is that under the Constitution we should be granted -- same-sex couples should be able to have visitation rights in the hospitals, joint ownership of property, life insurance policies, et cetera. That's only fair.
It's what the Constitution calls for. And so we do support it. We do support making sure that committed couples in a same-sex marriage are guaranteed the same constitutional benefits as it relates to their property rights, their rights of visitation, their rights to insurance, their rights of ownership as heterosexual couples do."
PALIN:"...If there's any kind of suggestion at all from my answer that I would be anything but tolerant of adults in America choosing their partners, choosing relationships that they deem best for themselves, you know, I am tolerant and I have a very diverse family and group of friends and even within that group you would see some who may not agree with me on this issue, some very dear friends who don't agree with me on this issue."
But then again, tolerant could just mean," We are going to burn them at the stake fast, instead of slow...."
