Will Mary and Heather make a statement on civil equality when Dear Leader is fawning over his fundies on Monday about the marriage amendment vote? Just asking.
And what about Darth — will he or Lynne have anything to say about the President and Bill Frist’s desire to fill the coffers of the base by trashing Mary’s relationship during this amendment debate? Just asking.
* Mary Cheney’s path
Since we’re talking about protecting marriage, how about this candidate in San Diego, who is proving, once again, that the sanctity of marriage has been under attack for some time — and the homos had nothing to do with it.
Republican Jim Galley, who is running for Congress as a â€œpro-traditional familyâ€? candidate, was married to two women at the same time, defaulted on his child support payments and has been accused of abuse by one of his ex-wives.
The San Diego Union-Tribune discovered the personal history in making public-records checks on Galley, who is making his fourth run for elective office in four years. These checks are part of the newspaper’s election reporting process.
Galley married his second wife, Beth, in 1982 when, unbeknownst to her, he was still married to his first wife, Terry. Beth and Galley divorced in 1990 after she sought a restraining order alleging abuse.
Protecting marriage is what Dear Leader and Bill Frist have declared top priority.
Do they plan to divulge the divorce rates of all the “pro-family” candidates running for office?
