Karl Rove has been on the front lines in the fight to stop gay marriage:
Marriage is a very important part of our culture and our society. If we want to have a hopeful and decent society, we ought to aim for the ideal. And the ideal is that marriage ought to be and should be a union of a man and a woman. And we cannot allow activist judges to overturn that. We cannot allow activist local elected officials to thumb their nose at 5,000 years of human history and determine that marriage is something else.
Last week, Karl Rove got his second divorce.
Here's my question - for how many of those "5,000 years of human history" has it been acceptable to be twice divorced?
The longstanding claim by conservatives has been that gay marriage would undermine (as homemade porn star/conservative icon Carrie Prejean said) "opposite" marriage. That straight marriage is devalued by gay marriage.
2 divorces from Rove. Imagine how many he'd have if gays were undermining him?
