"I think that we've proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don't believe in gay adoption."
Younger voters in particular, who have been raised in a world of Will & Grace and Ellen have become increasingly intolerant of intolerance.
Is Goff trying to suggest that, far from being mere light-hearted entertainment, these programs are effective propaganda for the gay agenda? Just a few years ago, as I recall, scorn and ridicule were sure to rain down on any conservative who dared suggest there was even such a thing as a "gay agenda," much less accused Hollywood of promoting it. Now that the triumph of "tolerance" is a fait accompli, I guess liberals don't mind discussing their sitcoms-as-subversion strategy.
Goff says reactions to McCain's quote "highlight a fundamental problem for John McCain as he tries to formulate a winning strategy for November: How to win an election decided by voters in the middle, while continuing to pander to voters on the right."
- Is support for gay adoption a sine qua non in reaching "voters in the middle"? In Montana (the state where Obama spent his Fourth of July holiday), voters in 2004 approved by a 63-37 margin a ballot measure banning gay adoption. This suggests that the Will & Grace agenda has not progressed as rapidly as Goff might believe.
- Does anyone "on the right" feel that John McCain's been pandering to them lately?
