smokescreen

Maybe I’m a cynic but I can’t help but think that the gay marriage debate is a smokescreen to keep people from noticing repeal of the estate tax. Just a thought.

Why else would they be working this hard on an amendment that won’t pass? They won’t get 67 votes in the Senate. They won’t get 37 States to ratify it. But if you look at Google News you can see the following:

1,880 news articles for: Estate Tax
3,530 news articles for:
death tax.
9,690 news articles for: gay marriage
7,420 news articles for:
same sex marriage

So it looks like something that won’t pass is getting four times the coverage of something that will pass.
