A Plethora Of Pledges

"Don't worry. It's mostly pictures."

Every time you turn around these days, Republican politicians are having to “pledge” to do one thing or another.  There’s John Boehner’s “Pledge to America”.  Jim DeMint’s “Cut, Cap and Balance Pledge”.  Grover Norquist’s “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”.  And, of course, Iowa’s “Family Leader Marriage Vow”, where you have to promise not to cheat on your spouse and to engage in “robust childrearing and reproduction”.  Yikes!  Better stock up on the Viagra, guys.  Your country needs you.
