Andrew SUllivan has posted Carl Paladino’s apology for reading prepared statements concerning gays that got him in trouble. Part of the apology says this:

5) My position on marriage is based on my personal views. I have the same position on this issue as President Barrack Obama…

Sully responds:

Notice how Barack Obama’s opposition to marriage equality is used by others. There are costs to pragmatism.

Interesting how, even though the policy position is indeed the same, coming from one camp, it’s a sign of bigotry and homophobia and hate, and from the other side, it’s pragmatism. How does that work exactly?
