I think I have officially seen it all today. Instead of debating real issues such as Iraq, health care, the slow meltdown of the American economy, the blogosphere is ripe with stories about Republican Jon Elrod’s sexual orientation and Democrat Andre Carson’s religion.
It’s ironic that individuals who want to be treated with the same deference as mainstream media are clearly demonstrating they are as about as far out of the mainstream as possible.
As one of the premiere bloggers in this state I can solve their issues for them right now. Andre Carson is not a member of the Nation of Islam and is not a follower of Louis Farrakhan. Jon Elrod is not gay. He is a single man who is straight and takes the institution of marriage seriously and has a “live and let live” attitude.
Now that I’ve settled that, perhaps we can back to a real conversation. Or if not, leave the race to the grown ups.
