Long shot Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo called for a federal ban on gay marriage today. Speaking in Iowa, where a judge recently allowed and then stopped gay marriage, Tancredo vowed:
The commitment of a husband and wife to love one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society. Government, by recognizing and protecting marriage, serves the interests of everyone in Iowa. The State Legislature and the people of Iowa need to take their power back from this activist judge by passing a Constitutional amendment which protects traditional marriage.
Can’t the Republicans think of something more clever than “activist judges”? What about “renegade judges” or “poopy pants know it alls”?
