More important issues

It strikes me as odd that Kerry’s comments on gay marriage are not headlines today. He points out (accurately, I think) that the Bush administration is trying to use this issue to distract people from real issues, like the 43 million Americans without health care. This strikes me as an incredibly serious accusation and yet the media seems to have no interest in covering it. I also think it was a huge mistake on Bush’s part to do this now. Even if it’s a win issue for the GOP, it’s way to early in the cycle to be able to capitalize on it. Though I suppose Newsom and the MA courts forced the issue.

Moderately related: Seems the photographers who own the photos that were doctored to discredit Kerry are a little miffed. Of course, the culprits see no problem with stealing and misusing someone else’s property for their own purpose.
