More controversy a la Brownback. I wonder if Senator Wonder Boy is gonna backdown from the YouTube debate like the RINOs? Also, this is the laziest article I have ever read. Listen, if you want to talk about blog “parodies” causing problems or “clouding messages” pick up the phone on your desk and get someone’s/ANYONE’S comment besides some Prof. at BYU. How about Senator Brownback’s campaign manager? Or maybe his internet director? Or maybe Psycheout, or Sisyphus. Make them go on record with their “no comments” or their “denials” or their admittance of satire. Don’t just squirt out a bunch of column inches of navel gazing. Sheesh, are you angling for a spot on “Reliable Sources”?
The mind boggles imagining the back stories (both legislative and personal) for this comment from the Denver Post piece:
Brownback sponsored [the International Marriage Relations Act] that regulates (PREVENTS) marriage by requiring a series of background checks before an American can marry a foreigner within the boundaries of the United States and aditional background checks before they can communicate if they use an matchmaking organization.
Brownback’s romance law was patterned after a 1935 German law which required background checks before two people can marry supposedly to protect German women. But the real purpose of the German law was to prevent Jews from marying German women while Brownback’s sinister law was developed in secret by radical women’s groups to “sabotage American men from marrying foreign women with traditional values that the radical folks at the National Organization of Women abhor.
