Pence on "Partners"

Lieutenant Gov. Steve Pence had this to say in yesterday's Louisville Courier-Journal on U of L's plan to provide taxpayer funded benefits for the live-in sexual partners of its staff: "I don't necessarily disagree with it."

Let's give him 10 out of 10 points for honesty, 2 out of 10 points for sentence construction (a really limp double negative to blunt the political implications of his position) and 0 out of 10 points for political acumen. This is, after all, the man who says he may run for the Republican nomination for governor against Ernie Fletcher in a state that passed a same-sex marriage ban by a politically numbing margin.

Go Steve.
