The Post: Agent of Conservative Propaganda

I wanted to hate this weird article on marriage, but it kind of made me laugh.

But then I wanted to make a joke about Bush's stupid marriage initiatives, but that just led me to this disappointing page. Obviously I haven't yet gotten that far in The Audacity of Hope. I already have a more lasting bond with my partner; it's called a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage, and it means that we can't break up without transferring big bucks amongst ourselves and possibly out to some lawyers. And isn't that what marriage is all about?

That is a weird article. I think you should tie this post to a future post on "He's Just Not Into You". I saw the movie Monday night and it was not as terrible as I expected. Do you think the government marriage initiative includes funding for elaborate "honeymoons" in Tahiti that allow you to spend a couple weeks in seclusion bonding with your significant other?

If they do, then it turns out I am in favor of them and would like to apply ASAP.
