Muckroom Follies1.15.08 Horse Hair!

Dear Gentle Reader(s), Good News! There has been found a genuine, albeit metaphorical, horse hair over at the Townhall muckroom!

It seems that somehow a rational column has managed to get by the keepers of the purity of Right Wing Nut Scum thought.

Check out "It's Freedom Stupid" by Craig Shirley. In it, he castigates the fundamentalist Yahoos who have seized control of the venerable Republican Party for their attempts to add a "marriage amendment" to the U.S. Constitution. And he uses Ronald Reagan as a prime example of a Republican who would not have supported such an action during his presidency.

Mondy quote: Reagan saw the Constitution as a brilliant document because it does not outline what the citizenry cannot do; rather it stipulates what government cannot do. It is a mechanical document of negative governance. The Marriage Amendment runs contrary to the principles of the Constitution and is offensive both intellectually and historically, like the silly proposal to ban flag burning.

And there's more. The column is a breath of fresh air for the muckroom.

Would there were more of such.

Trust, but verify!
