The Sons of the Confederacy part doesn't seem to make sense, 'tho ...

I just assumed he was trying to say "two out of three ain't bad..."? Imagine that "gay" is italicized, and that's how I read it.

Perhaps the Confederate part of the tweet referred to already having flags, Dukes of Hazzard merchandise, and so forth. They could sell it on the black market for more money than they would've gotten on eBay.

Truth be told, I figure GOP presidential candidates are the ones having a pretty good week. Nikki Haley gave them cover on the Confederate flag, the Obamacare ruling gave them a major talking point*, and today's ruling means they don't actually have to say anything about gay marriage if they don't want to (thus avoiding those annoying gotcha questions and any annoyed primary voters). A Republican candidate is in a better position when they can talk real issues instead of SJW nonsense.

* The ruling will also give Democrats a headache next year because Obamacare will continue to fall apart. Really, I've been looking at the liberal rhetoric from yesterday, and it all boils down to the same thing: "Let's never speak of this again because we can't defend the program that's failed to honor a single promise we made about it." There's also how the base was spared the frustration and de-moralization of seeing the GOP Congress cave on the issue.

Good points, ST. I still think the media will try to play gotcha on the gay marriage issue -- "What would YOU do about the ruling, Mr. Bush?" The easiest answer is, of course, "The issue has been decided, there's nothing more to say." They could elaborate without "penalty" by saying they'd have preferred it remain a state matter, but any questions about a constitutional amendment will prove silly as there is absolutely NO popular will to do anything like that, and will prove disastrous for the party.

Do you mean questions from the *media* about a Constitutional Amendment will prove silly? Because a couple of the major candidates are actually still saying they'll push for this. So the questions are pretty relevant.

The media can ask the question (and they will, make no mistake, 'cuz REPUBLICANS, natch), but consider who's making the case for an amendment:

Huckabee? Seeya. Got no chance.
Walker? Based on what he's said, he seems to be merely pointing out the only way to alter the SCOTUS's ruling. Sure it's tactical politics, and someone could ask him "If such a movement started would you support it?" but in reality he knows it'll go nowhere.

Bush and Rubio have already seen the light, so to speak.
