Ford Flip Flops
It’s hard to maintain your faith in democracy and politics when you see stuff like this:
When asked on the Today Show, “So you’re now in favor of same sex marriage?”
Ford responded: “Civil unions and same-sex marriage, yes.”
As a congressman from Tennessee, Ford advocated a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
I mean, I’m glad he’s flip-flopped in a progressive direction, but if politicians like Ford (and the gal he’s trying to beat) are so malleable in their beliefs as to flip-flop on policy whenever it suits their interest, then what’s the point in fighting to elect one party or the other? Whoever gets elected is just going to do whatever they want anyway.
I swear, it’s taken 10 years of UF and DC living, but I think I’m finally succumbing to the cynicism of real life.
