Gay marriage inevitable? If you say so, Joe Biden

First off, Merry Christmas everyone! May Santa stuff your stockings with all sorts of strong opinions on politics and a world that continues to jangle us like wind chimes in a hurricane.

I wasn’t going to blog today because I am somewhat busy helping the elves pack the sleigh. But then Joe Biden opened his big mouth again today and I couldn’t resist.

The vice president was on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and said the country is evolving on the issue of gay marriage and he thinks it’s inevitable there will be a national consensus.

Biden said the same thing is happening with the issue of marriage that happened with gays’ service in the military, referencing the Congressional repeal of DADT.

Well, Biden’s idyllic view is sprinkled with small fingers of doubt among many, to put it politely.

While he was at it, the vice president should have predicted by Christmas next year every American will live on a leafy cul-de-sac with a backyard lake where dinghies rock peacefully in the morning sun.

Then again, anything is possible in a world where even Mr. and Mrs. Rex Ryan put their best foot forward.
