Priggish boomer-cons embrace the Nanny State

"They're the party whose leader defends the sanctity of embyronic stem cells against scientists trying to cure diseases. They're the killjoy who stands up to object when a gay couple wants to marry. They're so shocked by gambling that the House passed a bill outlawing most online wagering, and federal agents arrested a visiting British executive of a sports-betting operation that is perfectly legal in his country.

Even before there were lottery tickets at gas stations and casinos on reservations, savvy politicians realized that gambling was a vice to be denounced but mostly ignored."
