That's a Confusing Issue...

I understand and appreciate Governor Synder’s general approach to social issues. He wants to stay above the fray, not get bogged down in emotional issues, not get stuck in a debate where somebody will inevitably end up angry. But, at a certain point, that act gets tiresome. And also at a certain point, taking a clear position on a issue like gay marriage is necessary to set a course for the state you happen to be the leader of. It becomes an economic issue. If threats of government shutdowns have taught us anything, it’s that markets do not like uncertainty. Take a stand. It’s time to move on.

Note: This cartoon was already submitted by the time Miggy signed his $292 million ┬ácontract last Friday. Otherwise I might have gone with “Cabrera is rich” as one of the topics of undebatable truth.
