    Pa. gov: Gay marriage is like marriage of siblings

    Pa. gov: Gay marriage is like marriage of siblings

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) Republican Gov. Tom Corbett compared the marriage of same-sex couples to the marriage of a brother and sister during an appearance on a Friday morning TV news show.The Pennsylvania governor was on WHP-TV in Harrisburg speaking about gay marriage when an anchor asked about a statement his lawyers made in a recent court filing, comparing the marriage of gay couples to the marriage of children because neither can legally wed in the state.
    "It was an inappropriate analogy, you know," Corbett said. "I think a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don't you?"


    Typical "conservative/republican" ignorance.

    What a douche nozzle.

    So he's saying homosexual = incest


    A true moron in so many ways.

    Ugh. Stuff like this is why we wont win a re-election next year. He should have stepped aside for a better candidate it's like Corbett has been trying to write a book on how to lose a campaign.

    It's good to know that some government officials are completely uneducated on this topic.

    It's like what Corzine did in NJ back in 2009.

    Corbett has just left a bad taste in everyone's mouth. With the gutting of education, the refusal to tax gas companies among other things, it is incredibly unlikely that he will will be reelected in Pa.

    It's an odd analogy but makes sense from the fact that homosexuality is as abnormal as incest and not to mention the slippery slope gay marriage represents.... Hell, gay marriage by de facto discriminates against others in "taboo" relationships...

    I don't think it takes a "conservative" to realize that... An intelligent person of any political affiliation (or no political affiliation at all) can see that...

    So unfortunate that there are people who actually think, believe, and vocalize absolute horse excrement like the above.

    Truly sad.

    Truly ignorant.

    I'm more upset at how poorly he's handled liquor privatization. As for gas my big thing has always been that I think we should be creating a state sovereign wealth fund (SWF) to help plan for the future instead of feeding right back into the budget today. I wouldn't mind a small tax on certain types of gas development but I don't want to increase the overhead too much since we already have a decent state corporate tax of 10% (more if you have offices in Philadelphia or Pittsburg which some of them do).

    As for the state education system I'm honestly unsure of what needs to be done. I think part of the problem is that the system is so warped nationally that we don't feed enough students who's families could actually afford in-state tuition into the university system. To change that you'd have to start adjusting the way federal loans for out of state and private education work so they were more reflective of actual borrowing potential i.e. less accessible. That way you'd refocus a lot of families back to our state schools and make them more self-sustaining.
