marriage penalty

a few weeks back in the glow of the democratic convention, george will claimed that for 95% of the delegates the most important issue was gay marriage. this claim went unchallenged on This Weak when uttered. it was an obvious overstatement which im sure will if pressed would have said he was exaggerating for effect and that delegates are part of the "activist' wing of the party. as we all know most of these fabrications go unchecked. here from the pew center we have their annual report on americans and religion and public life. when asked what are their voting priorities, gay marriage ranked last (among those listed) for both democrats and swing voters (pg 10). plenty of other baubles to ponder within.
