This is just the direction Steele needs to take the GOP if they are to successfully lose worse in 2010 than they did in '06 or '08.
In response to a question from radio host Mike Gallagher today, RNC chairman Michael Steele took a hard, dismissive line against civil unions -- which have increasingly become a fallback, compromise position for blue-state Republicans and others who oppose same-sex marriage.
"Do you favor civil unions?" Gallagher asked:STEELE: No, no no. What would we do that for? What are you crazy? No. Why would we backslide on a core, founding value of this country. I mean this isn't something that you just kind of like, "oh well, today I feel, you know, loosey-goosey on marriage." I mean, this is a foundational principle of this country. It is a foundational principle of organized society. It isn't something that, you know, in America we decided, "let's make it between a man and a woman, oh well now, let's change our mind and make it between anyone and anyone. No.
