They’d better be!
Kasich: I’m going to a same-sex wedding soon http://t.co/VcqqtV9Dlo

Welcome to the latest media litmus test for Republican candidates, which like the 2012 litmus test — contraception — has absolutely nothing to do with the job for which they’re vying. Thanks to our crack legions of national reporters, we now know how Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and now John Kasich will RSVP when the gilt-edged invitation shows up in the mail. Meanwhile, we still don’t know whether Hillary Clinton would sign the deal with Iran or why she refused to bolster security around the Benghazi consulate.
To borrow a phrase from, like, two years ago, dude — what difference does it make?
On Twitter, I noted a few reactions from fellow conservatives that declared Kasich to have disqualified himself for their vote on this basis alone. It’s not clear whether Kasich would have ever held much hope for those votes anyway, but it seems an odd basis on which to choose the next presidential nominee. How exactly does this relate to the duties of that office, not just as a significant portion but as a supreme disqualifier?
Exactly. What is Kasich expecting? A medal?
.@EdMorrissey It never ceases to amaze how eager Republicans are to let the Left dictate the narrative

@EdMorrissey The PC SSM equivalent of "See, I'm not a racist, I've got _______ friends." He's trying too hard.

@JohnEkdahl a couple of Kasich's closest lobbyists are gay, so it's really no revelation even by dumb "gotcha" standards

How can we get in on this?
@GayPatriot This seems all the rage now. If I wanted to attend a same-sex wedding, where would I buy tickets?
