Democrats' platform drafting committee votes for marriage equality; 'wingers react
Pat Robertson reacts in the above clip to the decision by the platform drafting committee for the Democratic National Convention in favor of a plank supporting marriage equality. That, of course, became inevitable on May 9 with President Obama's statement of support. Meanwhile, Brian Brown of NOM says the Democrats "hope to kill off the institution of marriage at their convention in Charlotte." Sigh.
Eleanor Clift at The Daily Beast quotes a Democratic strategist making the point many of us have been making for some time:
It’s a net positive for Democrats as a whole because it generates a tremendous amount of enthusiasm in our base, and I don’t think we lose a single independent vote.
Mitt Romney's campaign issued a tepid restatement of his opposition to marriage rights for gay couples. I sure am hoping that does not satisfy Brown, Robertson and other anti-gay obsessives.
