Mitt Romney Disses Hillary, Gay Parents

Shorter Mitt Romney: The children, the children! Check the dig at Hillary Clinton:

What should be the ideal for raising a child: not a village, not "parent A" and "parent B," but a mother and a father.

Though Mitt magnanimously offers that, "Same sex marriage doesn't hurt my marriage, or yours," there's plenty of offensiveness elsewhere in the statement, like when he says kids with divorced or even deceased parents are better off than kids with two gay parents:

Of course, even today, circumstances can take a parent from the home, but the child still has a mother and a father. If the parents are divorced, the child can visit each of them. If a mother or father is deceased, the child can learn about the qualities of the departed. His or her psychological development can still be influenced by the contrasting features of both genders.

At least the child will grow up knowing he/she wasn't related to any homos then, right? This point is extremely bizarre. If Romney is, as he says, "troubled by those on the other side of the issue who equate respect for traditional marriage with intolerance," then maybe he should stop saying such offensive things as the above quote.

I've been meaning to post on sports and may get to it tonight/tomorrow. You know you're a hopeless NBA fan when you're excited about the Charlotte Bobcats expansion draft.
