‘Left, Right & Center’: Crash of the Titans

Posted on Dec 19, 2008
Left, Right & Center

Bernie Madoff made a big mess, and Detroit’s Big Three drove themselves to the brink. So what’s the good news this week—Caroline Kennedy’s auspicious entrée into her famous family’s political biz? Or is that, too, bound to become yet another instance of an American aristocracy flexing its privilege at the expense of the nation? Listen in as “Left, Right & Center” regulars Matt Miller, Robert Scheer and Tony Blankley take on these timely topics.

One of the distinguishing features of the gay movement is it’s lack of perspective. Proposition 8’s passage was a big deal, Obama’s invite to Warren was not. If we can only function by interacting with those we agree with the entire country would come to a halt. Since I’m a live and let live kind of person, and consider most religious beliefs largely baloney, I have no problem with gay marriage but a lot of people still do. In the long run they are going to come out on the wrong side of this argument as public opinions shifts on the issue but for the moment it’s a reality and by making a big song and dance about something that in the scheme of things is fairly small potatoes when the country is falling apart, gays make themselves look small and out of touch with reality. The other aspect of it is that Republicans and enemies of the gay community love this infighting because it makes the Democratic party and its supporters look divided when in reality or not. Essentially in a political sense the people stirring this small matter up into a big deal are giving aid and comfort to the enemy but this seems less important than indulging themselves.

it is very disappointing that the program did not address Obama’s invitation to Rick Warren for the inauguration.  do the LRC commentators think that homosexuality is a joke in America, as Obama seems to think they are?
