I’m not Keith Olbermann’s biggest fan. Honestly, even today I feel like his passion is sometimes misdirected, but his comments supporting same-sex-marriage [ no on Proposition 8 ] are spot-on, and he deserves accoldades for his passion, professionalism and journalism. Take a minute to hear his word and try to explain how you could possibly justify voting to change the constitution to segregate a portion of the population based on their sexual preferences.
I was driving to a local street festival this weekend and on the way there drove past about twenty, older, white folks, all waving signs suggesting that people should vote to affirm Proposition 8 in the State of California. For those of you that don’t know, this is the abolishment of the right for gays to marry. If I had been in my other car I probably would have ran them down. I could simply use the defense of Natural Selection and probably get away with it. Their arguments really are that stupid.
