Nah, Dennis miller is a conservative former comedian. Back when he was still doing comedy, it was pretty centrist, with the social aspect leaning a bit to the left.

After 9/11 made him shit his pants, he started being conservative, and stopped being a comedian, opting to move his "big words and obscure references" style into punditry, where it works about as well as you might expect.

He is still to the left on social issues (abortion, gay marriage, etc.)

And moreover, if Mozilla hired a CEO who said that women shouldn't be allowed to vote, and that black people should be returned to slavery, is it wrong to call for a boycott?

As much as the religionists try to spin it, Prop 8 isn't much different.

You really do not see much difference between not giving a marriage licence versus slavery and denying people the right to vote?

The fact that most people who are against gay marriage are for gay civil unions, it seems to definitely be one driven by religious beliefs.

You really can't compare denying someone a marriage certificate is anywhere near the same ballpark as denying someone the right to vote / ride in the front of the bus / use the same drinking fountains, etc. Especially when the civil union would give the same legal protections as marriage.

We are going to be seeing (and have been seeing), more and more posts like this the closer we get to midterms. They know it's ludicrous, but the more people read something (in this case the same general theme,) the less crazy it sounds and eventually some people will believe it.

As shown during the last elections, Democrats are very good at social engineering/conditioning. Look at most of the "hot" topics on this site this month and you will see a post like this.

I am out of practice. I was married 10 years to my late wife and didn't need those social skills. Getting some positive karma before getting into a vernal conversation helps.

You are right, however. This has not helped me when it comes to meeting people. It only works for people that are introduced to me. That is a preety strong handicap.
