And the Winner Is . . .

In the category "Dumbest Rationale In Support of Any Policy Argument From a Supposedly Intelligent Media Outlet" goes to (here I fumble with the envelope), the WSJ Editorial Board who make this argument in support of repeal of the estate tax:
[T]he best thing gay activists could do for themselves at the federal level would be to support repeal of the death tax, since under current law gay couples often lack inheritance rights.
Wrong. The best thing that gay activists could do is argue that the provisions of IRC Section 2056(a) (unlimited spousal bequests) should be extended to gay and lesbian unions.
