An Unanswered Letter to Sen. Jim Bunning

Senator Jim Bunning

Dear Senator Bunning,

I know this guy who is a huge fan of yours, so I am hoping I can get an autographed photo made out to “Craig” for him (that’s his first name). I’m not sure if it’s your politics or the fact that you’re a Baseball Hall of Famer that makes him think you’re great, but either way a photo would make his day!

This isn’t why I am writing though. As you may have heard recently we’ve decided to allow gay people to get married in Iowa. And not just gay Iowans! Some people are unhappy with this decision, some elated, and some like me, are just plain confused. I decided to write to get your opinion.

If someone from say Kentucky were to get married in Iowa (I mean a gay someone), and he and his husband went back to your state, will their marriage be recognized? And has anyone thought about what this may do for illegal immigration? Now people wanting a green card have twice as many options when committing fraud!

Regardless, I have a great idea. If the state of Kentucky doesn’t want gay people getting married, we could work out some kind of swap. Iowa can have your gays and we could send you the people in opposition to gays and gay marriage. I don’t mean a formal swap, but maybe some cross-state promotion. Get the state tourism boards to start promoting what kinds of people we want in each state. We’d even take Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo off your hands!

This seems like a win win win to me! Let me know what you think.
