The Super Bowl ads were more important than you thought


Yesterday Dalia Lithwick had an excellent column on the lack of actual arguments from the anti-marriage equality forces. This was certainly in evidence to anyone watching the debate in the Washington house of representatives earlier this week. With the outcome not in doubt, the defenders of discrimination tended to wax philosophical, with hilarious results. There are a lot of options, of course, but my personal favorite came from Mark Hargrove, who represents the fine people of the 47th district, describing the epiphany he had while watching a Jack in the Box commercial. Mr. Hargrove is surely not the first person to have a profound philosophical discovery while watching a Jack In The Box commercial, nor will he be the last. The key difference, it seems to me, is that the vast majority who experience such a revelation have the good sense to keep quiet about it once they sober up.
