Speaking of conservatives who want to pretend to talk about inequality while not actually talking about it, Edroso finds this gem from Kathleen Parker:
Obviously, marriage won’t cure all ills. A single mother could marry tomorrow and she still wouldn’t have a job. But in the War on Poverty, rebuilding a culture that encourages marriage should be part of the arsenal.
See, if you want to make it to the real big leagues, it’s better to let snarky critics refute your smarm than just doing it yourself. I’ll leave the rest to Roy:
I guess all conservatives will get with this program soon enough, even though, in correlation-is-causation terms, marriage is as likely to make you white as it is to make you rich. Poor people who don’t want to get married, here’s your only hope: When the Republicans come for you, tell them you’re gay.
