More Bad News for the Theocons - In today's NYTimes, William Safire comes out in favor of civil unions and legislative (not judicial) progression to gay marriage. The author of On Language also introduces us to a space saving neo-acronym: s-s-m. Safire admits to being a "libcon" -- a libertarian conservative. If only more cons were also libs. Although he doesn't say it explicitly, I suppose this puts him four square against the FMA.

In case you haven't noticed it, there's been a raft of conservatives speaking out against the stupid thing -- from David Brooks, mentioned here earlier, to George Will. Now if Rush would just tell us he's opposed, we can all help the bigot brigade pack up and just go home.

Update: Jonah Goldberg joins the "No on FMA" chorus.
