RNC Platform and Other Preparations 

I was going to put up an in depth post on the latest in RNC platform news, but really, what's the point? Is anyone surprised that:

-The platform committee approved the plank calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment and opposes recognition of same-sex unions?

-The platform committe rejected the proposed "Unity Plank?"

-That the GOP doesn't approve of its delegates getting discounted tickets to see the gay-themed and long-running Broadway show Naked Boys Singing? You're going to have to pay full price now, folks.

I admit that I didn't expect to see the list of moderate Republicans such as Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Arnold Schwarzenegger appended with the name Dick Cheney. But now that he has reiterated his earlier stance against a Federal Marriage Amendment, that's the company he's being slotted into by FMA advocates such as Andrea Lafferty and Gary Bauer.
