Following up on the developments in San Francisco, I offer you one of the most rhetorically savvy statements by a politician that I've seen in a long time:
The mayor's views on same-sex marriage run counter to those of President Bush, who has argued for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution stating that marriage must be between a man and a woman.

"He's trying to promulgate a separate and unequal status," Newsom told a reporter Thursday. "He's talking about changing the Constitution of the United States. It is hardly consistent with his compassionate conservatism. So, I guess I'm honored to engage in any discourse on this subject."
It's always good to remind people that our fearless leader once promoted "compassionate conservatism." Perhaps the orcs in Mordor basked in the same type of compassion.
