Christian family organizations have been strong-arming pre-teens into signing pledges for years, but it must have been a banner day when they realized they could do the same with fully grown, seemingly powerful men and women running for president.
That much-maligned "marriage pledge" that both Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum signed has a lot of people crying foul, and not just because of the now-excised slavery introduction. Bill Maher recently made the snarkiest, and therefore, most rewarding takedown of it on "Real Time," introducing his own ridiculous pledge in the process.
Who will stand and sign the, "The American Eagle Liberty Bell Ronald Reagan You're A Homo If You Don't Sign It Pledge"? Only the most patriotic of patriots.
