!! OMG, Let Them Eat Wedding Cake: Hillary proud to live in a country where any straight person can marry any straight person !!


Hillary Clinton’s straight daughter Chelsea’s peen-on-vaj matrimonial extravaganza is quickly impending and it’s reminding SOS Clinton how proud she is to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, a country where any person can marry any other person– as long as they’re a man and a woman! Or, the

“It says a lot about this wonderful experiment known as America, where we recognize the right that every single person has to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and over the years so many of the barriers that prevented people from getting married — crossing lines of faith or color or ethnicity — have just disappeared.”

While it’s easy to make fun of Clinton for this statement (I just did it above!) I actually think it might be a very gently coded statement in support of same-sex gay marriage. If she’s saying that “many” of the barriers preventing people from getting married have broken down, it also seems implicit in her statement that other barriers should be eliminated as well. Right? She’s a diplomat, after all– she’s used to this kind of gentle prodding without actually coming out and saying what she means.
Or am I giving Madame Secretary way too much credit here?

    The way I read her statement it sounds to me like she’s implying exactly what you’re thinking.

    you are giving her credit for what is not there. she has always said what she means and supported it. this was not a statement of support. why should we patronize ourselves with support that is simply not there?

    no. you are giving her credit for what is not there and somehow patronizing yourself. if she wanted to say it , be clear, she has always been able to support her statements. this was not a statement of support.

    Personally, I think you’re spot on. She’s encoding multiple layers of meaning into what she says. She doesn’t want to turn her daughter’s wedding into a political thing, but she’s a politician, and she can’t help but push some obvious buttons.
