The wisdom of The Unelectable One
More from the Diane Sawyer interview:
“If necessary, I will support a constitutional amendment which would honor marriage between a man and a woman, codify that,” he said. “The position of this administration is that whatever legal arrangements people want to make, they're allowed to make, so long as it's embraced by the state or at the state level.”
Now maybe I'm at a disadvantage here because English is my first language, but doesn't the second sentence there directly contradict the first one?
Mr. Bush reiterated that he doesn't read newspapers and prefers getting the news — without opinion, he said — from White House chief of staff Andrew Card and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.
Well, that's a relief. Nice to know that Andy and Condi don't have any opinions, or at least can completely put them aside. Personally, I suspect that really means that Andy reads him Garfield, and Condi reads him Peanuts.
