almost like using the term "tax" to describe healthcare?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

In reading and listening to Roberts' analogy, I'm not sure whether he meant to say the opponents of Prop 8 instead of the proponents of Prop 8.  As it stands, it sounds like he is saying it's no big deal to change the definition of marriage since the proponents of Prop 8 would be opposed to changing it.  That's why the interpretation in the clip below differs from Rush's take, which is that Roberts is saying it means a lot.  Personally, I think Roberts meant to say that the difference in definition is quite meaningful, and so Rush's interpretation is correct.

Wasn't Pete Williams a Navy man and isn't he homosexual?
