BOX TURTLES?....I thought that David Gelernter's comparison of John Edwards to an under-ripe bunch of bananas yesterday was a serious nominee for awkward simile of the year honors, but I guess I was wrong. Via Andrew Sullivan, here is Texas Senator John Cornyn:

It does not affect your daily life very much if your neighbor marries a box turtle. But that does not mean it is right....Now you must raise your children up in a world where that union of man and box turtle is on the same legal footing as man and wife.

First bananas, now box turtles. There must be a name for this syndrome....
