Their Kind of Leader

Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.) accused Republicans of bigotry during last week’s debate on a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. "A vote for it is a vote for bigotry — pure and simple," said Kennedy. If Kennedy were sincere, he would also have to accuse Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) of bigotry — or at least the old Harry Reid. Back in 2004, before he was Democratic leader, Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he had been "steadfast against gay marriage all along." Last week, Reid echoed Kennedy, saying the amendment would "write discrimination into the Constitution."
