OKAY, THE GUY WHO INTERVIEWED ME FOR THIS STORY was nice enough, but I questioned then whether his characterization of InstaPundit was right:

The stance is a departure from that of most conservatives, a division that supporters of gay marriage hope to exploit.

``I don't see the response to gay marriage as unified at all on the conservative side,'' said Glenn H. Reynolds, a supporter of gay marriage rights and publisher of the generally conservative blog Instapundit.com.

If you support gay marriage, drug legalization, and legal abortion -- but you also support the war -- then you're a "conservative," I guess. That seemed to be his position, and it seems to be a lot of people's. As Art Leff said, all definitions are permitted to the definer, so long as they're clear.
