Mitt Romney refuses to sign anti-gay marriage pledge

Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney refused to sign a pledge that rejects gay marriage, divorce, abortion and Sharia law. Of course just because he won't sign off on the inane rhetoric put forth by Iowa's even more inanely-named FAMiLY LEADER organization [sic], it doesn't mean he's for any of the aforementioned concepts. According to his spokesperson, Romney "strongly supports traditional marriage," but that the pledge "contained references and provisions that were undignified and inappropriate for a presidential campaign."

We think Romney's referring to the part that claims African American families were better off during slavery (though they've since removed that bit). Or he could be referring to a whole host of other craziness. But don't you worry — at least the pledge has gotten the approval of Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum.
