Sweet, sweet irony.

Don't care, really. Either way, there's a week's worth of schadenfreude watching Harper squirming on this.
Here's a guy who redefines the words "control freak." In fact, I believe I read somewhere on the intertoobz that his picture comes up when you google the expression.
And today, he gets caught looking while some nameless schmuck in the Justice Department argues that same-sex marriages aren't valid for some weaselly reason. With all the money they spend on message control, you'd think one of his spin doctors would have flagged that and kept it from happening. Too many dirty irons in the fire, maybe?
Guess you can only throw so many bones to the socons and fetus fetishists before they start expecting some real meat. A nod and a wink, then a lick and a promise, and then ... oh, shit.
I'll leave the last word to Dan Savage.
(Motherfucker. Heh heh heh.)
