The dominoes continue to fall: a second Republican senator has come out in favor of gay marriage.
It occurred to me that conservatives have a virtually unblemished record going back hundreds of years of being wrong about social issues: slavery, segregation, reproductive rights, interracial marriage, the right to privacy, prohibition, pornography... the list goes on and on and on. The liberal position on social issues has been vindicated again and again and again and again. In fact, I can't think of a single social issue on which conservatives have been on the right side of history. Can you?
You'd think that people would start to catch on after 300 years without a win.
(Conservatives are wrong about most economic issues too, but that's a harder case to make because there's not a consensus on the quality metric. Conservatives think that oligopolies are fine and dandy, but dare I say that reasonable people might disagree.)
