Britney's Views on Gay Marriage

Hmmmm… Some Secret Reason We Don’t Know About????
Britney: A Poster Child for Gay Marriage?
How is it that Britney Spears has become the poster child for gay marriage rights? The credit goes to the great state of Iowa. Specifically, Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack. In a speech on Valentine's Day, the Democrat said that Iowa should provide legal rights to committed gay couples and offered his support for same-sex civil unions.
Here's where Britney comes in: "I do think that we as a state ought to honor commitments, and we ought to reflect that in policies that we have," Vilsack said. "I personally don't think that it is fair...for Britney Spears, who was married for 51 hours to some guy in Las Vegas (for) that guy (to have) more rights than someone who's been committed to another person for 25 years." That marriage was annulled.
This wasn't the only attack on Britney by a government official this week. Remember when she got caught by the paparazzi driving with baby Sean in her lap instead of safely buckled in a rear-facing car seat? Now Norman Mineta, the secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has yelled at her for that infraction. "There's absolutely no excuse for this display--not instinct, not fear, not even reckless paparazzi," Mineta preached on Monday. Oh yeah, that was the same day he was promoting a $25 million initiative for new or tougher booster-seat laws. Coincidence? We don't think so. Funny comment from FedBlog: "I'd say this qualifies as the biggest celebrity smackdown by a federal official since Dan Quayle went ballistic on 'Murphy Brown.'" Well, at least Britney is a real person.
