Had I been at the press conference in front of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford today I would have posed a different type of question to him. Since the Governor is opposed to gay marriage, civil unions, and gay adoptions, and he was after all, hoping to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, (the key word there is ‘was’) my question would have been as follows.
Governor, so what is the argument against gay marriage again? That it will weaken heterosexual marriages such as yours? A lot of strong conservatives, such as yourself Governor have been threatened by gay marriage but in reality seem to have some pretty bad marriages all on your own. Could you comment that perhaps your bad marriage is more the issue rather than those who desire to create gay loving relationships.
Then just to be difficult I would add, ‘and I have a follow-up.”
