Jobs and Gay Marriage

by Dan Quinn

Yeah, we know. What in the world does one have to do with the other? That’s a good question for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Here’s what he said recently on the campaign trail (partial audio here):

“There is still a land of opportunity, friends — it’s called Texas. We’re creating more jobs than any other state in the nation. … Would you rather live in a state like this, or in a state where a man can marry a man?”

Seriously? That’s the choice for voters this year, Gov. Perry?

We have a better question for Texans: would you rather live in a state governed by someone who takes your vote seriously or someone who thinks pandering is the ticket to office?

UPDATE: Listening to the audio, it sounds like Gov. Perry’s last sentence was: “Would you rather live in a state like this, or do you want to live in a state where guys can marry guys?”
