Rightbloggers Take Cover as Gay Marriage Reigns Supreme

Rightbloggers Take Cover as Gay Marriage Reigns Supreme
By Roy Edroso Sun., Mar. 31 2013 at 9:33 PM

Last week the Supreme Court heard a couple of gay marriage cases and, with so many politicians and even some conservatives running to grab the rainbow flag, it seemed as if a corner on the contentious issue had been turned.

How went the rightbloggers? Most continued to -- paraphrasing Buckley -- stand athwart history, crying "Please be gentle!" But others tried to accommodate their new gay-married overlords in ways that preserved for themselves some sliver of Right Pride.

However the court rules, things do look sunnier for marriage equality than they did even a year ago. Polls now show slightly more support for than opposition to gay marriage. And some top Republicans have been doing the rats/sinking ship routine. Rob Portman switched on account of his son; a number of Republicans signed a legal brief on behalf of gay marriage; Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said a pro-gay-marriage GOP Presidential candidate was not only possible but "inevitable," etc.

But don't worry -- most real conservatives are holding the line; Mike Huckabee's even willing to lead the Bible belters out of the GOP over it. And despite some maudlin well-I-guess-this-is-it capitulations, most rightbloggers are on the line with them -- though there is some (pardon the expression) diversity as to tactics. ..............(more)
