Senator Waffles Strikes Again

Doc Poliblog beat me to yet another example of John Kerry being all things to all people.

Kerry Again Opposes Same-Sex Marriage

With his home state set to begin marrying same-sex couples on Monday, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) reiterated his opposition to the idea yesterday, even as he met with gay and lesbian groups to shore up their support.

The presumptive Democratic nominee has long opposed gay marriage, favoring instead state-sanctioned civil unions that extend legal protections to gay couples.

Yet Kerry has taken several positions on the issue: He voted against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as a union only of a man and woman, saying it amounted to gay-bashing. Kerry has opposed President Bush's call for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage but said in February that he favors such a ban in Massachusetts.

For the many of you that are new to the blogosphere this week, Dr. Steven Taylor (Doc Poliblog as I dubbed him) is a Professor of political science and has an interesting blog if you are really into politics.

I think you could post just about anything about John Kerry right now and only get an off-topic comment from someone with Baghdad pix.


Kerry is so very boring that he'd have to run naked around the Washington Monument to spark an interest. I just find myself tuning him out.

"I'm running for President to make the country we love safer, stronger, and...blah, blah, blah...leaving no American behind...blah, blah, blah...firehouses in Baghdad and closing them in Brooklyn...blah, blah, blah...foreign policy backed by an enlightened self-interest...blah, blah, blah...bold, progressive internationalism...blah, blah, blah..."

Sad, huh? On top of that, he's been completely eclipsed by the Berg video and prison abuse scandal. He'd better choose a dynamic running mate.

Granted, I'm hopelessly partisan on this topic, but with Kerry there does seem to be a certain "charisma gap."
