IN WHICH I FEEL IT NECESSARY TO BURNISH MY CONSERVATIVE BONA FIDES SO THAT THE MOUTH BREATHING, SCROTUM SCRATCHING NINCOMPOOPS UNDERSTAND WHAT MAKES A TRUE GENTLEMAN OF THE RIGHT

Dear Ed

If you can think of it, I have either done it or thought of it so feel to say any nasty thing about me you wish and I will try not to suffer under the burdon of your condemnation. I do try not to parade my sins in front of others and demand others validate them as OK though.

BTW, stoning went out with the New Testament.

First let me say I found Ann's comments juvenile and designed to get Ann more attention. I will however take issue with your comment regarding:

"But accusing gays of being “sinners” and “deviants?” This is beyond the pale and should have no place in our political conversations."

As a person who actually takes the bible seriously as opposed to people who view it's teachings as collection of quaint anecdotes to pick and choose among, there is no question that it is called out as sin. Does that make me a saint? No. Does that mean they are going to hell? No. I have my own collection of sins but ultimately I don’t try to pass them off as being OK or less then the sin they are. We are generally called on as believers to love the person and treat them with respect while rejecting the sin. It is not beyond the pale to call gay's or their practices sin or deviant...unless you consider the Bible and it's teachings beyond the pale as well.
Is Ann’s vulgar epitaph a worse sin then homosexuality? I leave that for God to sort out but in the end they are both sin and fall short of the Bible teachings.
You could only argue it is not a fair part of the political discussion if you consider Biblical teachings of right and wrong a bunch of superstitious nonsense with no place in political debate.

A PYRRIC VICTORY FOR OPPONENTS OF MIERS

Your being way too melodramatic about this. The dems were seeing victory in her actual confirmation as well as her current withdrawal. They considered it win-win either way. Bush and the conservative base are much tougher then you give them credit for; he makes a decent choice from here all that past recrimination will be bird cage liner. Had he steamrolled and ignored his base in this is then you would have seen damage as his most dedicated supporters sat out 2006 because they didn't like being used.
