Liberals Taking Credit for Conservative Ideas

I find this story in the Houston Chronicle amusing:

Republican Gov. Rick Perry rallied his evangelical, socially conservative base on the issue, but political analysts said Proposition 2’s success doesn’t necessarily predict future success for individual politicians.

“I don’t see how it can be useful for a party or a candidate because this so transcends all the political parties and the typical categorizations,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of the conservative Free Market Foundation, which backed the amendment.

I see. So while Democrats opposed Proposition 2’s ban on gay marriage and Republicans supported a ban, the fact that the rank and file Democrat voted for Proposition 2 also doesn’t mean they support Republican principles. Huh.

Looks and smells like denial to me. The Democratic party has been supporting every far-left anti-moral cause for the last decade and don’t understand why they’re losing elections. To oppose Proposition 2 and take credit for its passage simultaneously is a fascinating study in doublespeak.
