Webster's Dictionary? That Damned Liberal Rag!

Page Bernard Goldberg! Evidence the dictionary's "written by some liberal person!" They're changing the definition of marriage - civilization will end!

Conservatives have their tidy whiteys all twisted because (ZOMG) the nation's most popular dictionary updated the definition of marriage. Guess what, language gets updated all the time, that's why there are new editions of dictionaries. *facepalm jpg*

Merriam Webster added a new definition of marriage in 2003

the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage

but as Andrew Sullivan points out, conservatives seem to have just noticed it. One guy got so upset about the "homosexual agenda" he made a video about it (above).
Two things, here. It took them six years to crack open a dictionary and discover this "outrage." That's fucking pathetic even by wingnut standards. And that video's as pathetic as they are. They'd better pretend it's a Poe.

How long do you think it'll be before some absolute idiot in Congress or a state legislature tries to push a bill defending marriage against dictionaries?
