Video: Steele seeks job insurance, hopes gays' wedding rings make worthy deposit

by Jeremy Hooper

We've already shown you clips of National Organization for Marriage chair Maggie Gallagher talking to five RNC chairperson hopefuls about marriage, specifically the subject of shutting gays out of the system. And all five of those hopefuls, running to the right of current RNC chair Michael Steele, told Maggie exactly what she wanted to hear: Ban the gays, smile so you don't seem cruel doing it, sleep well knowing you've "protected families" (and small tents) for another few years.

Well now it's current chairman Michael Steele's turn in the hot seat, except this time Maggie passes the duty on to her NOM colleague Frank Cannon. And as for Steele? Well, he proudly puts on his his staunch conservative mask and draws a clear line in the sand between the GOP's changing tide and the GOP's old wave, showing once again why no equality advocate can in good conscience place sincere hope for fair, civil rights gains in this current (or, seemingly, future) incarnation of the GOP:

Hey Michael Steele: Saying something is not exclusionary doesn't make it so.
