Why I Wish Every Lawmaker Would Lawmake As If They Were Lawmaking For Their Family

From San Diego: the Republican mayor there was vehemently opposed to gay marriage. Then, we have his daughter come out... and guess what the mayor's take is on gay marriage now?

SAN DIEGO -- Mayor Jerry Sanders abruptly reversed his public opposition to marriage for same-sex partners and revealed that his adult daughter is a lesbian.

Sanders on Wednesday signed a City Council resolution supporting a challenge to California's gay marriage ban. He previously promised to veto it.

The Republican mayor said he could no longer back the position he took during his election campaign two years ago, when he said he favored civil unions but not full marriage rights for homosexual couples.

He fought back tears as he said he wanted his adult daughter, Lisa, and other gay people he knows to have their relationships protected equally under state laws.

''In the end, I could not look any of them in the face and tell them that their relationships -- their very lives -- were any less meaningful than the marriage that I share with my wife Rana,'' Sanders said.

This isn't an original thought, but it again leads me to start thinking: "What if George Bush's daughters were in Iraq?"

"Iraq Who?" To start they never would be there even if they had been twin boys. Nepotism at work. Which I do believe is a great way.
