Candidates OK With School Books on Same-Sex Parents

September 27, 2007

Salon’s Michael Scherer has a very funny (and informative!) write-up on last night’s Democratic presidential debate — a shorthand version of what you missed while watching “Bionic Woman.”

Here’s my favorite part:

57 minutes. A question goes to all of the candidates. Would it be appropriate for a schoolteacher to read a story about a gay couple to their children in second grade? “Yes, absolutely,” says Edwards. “What I want is I want my children to understand everything about the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day.” Obama agrees. So does Clinton.

62 minutes. Another commercial break. Hopefully no children in second grade are watching. This time MSNBC shows an advertisement for Cialis, a pill that promises an erection at any point between 30 minutes and 36 hours after consumption. Sometimes erections may last for four hours or cause temporary loss of vision.

Heh.
