From 'you lie' to 'I do': Savage proposes 2011's SOTU Youtube moment

by Jeremy Hooper

Dan Savage's argument: That if the President will just start making some positive statements about our unions and the legal recognition thereof, then he can help us get to a place where everyone -- progressive, conservative, moderate, or "what the hell is a State of the Union and why is it interrupting The Biggest Loser?" -- can stop hearing about gay people all the time. Because let's be real: Ending the bizarrely endless prattle about same-sex-loving people's marriages is a place where we should be able to find bi/nonpartisan agreement! Religious Right?

Go read in full:

I’m not an idiot: Now that the Republicans hold the House, only wishful thinkers and the deeply delusional expect to see any movement on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender legislative agenda this year or next. Nevertheless, President Obama should address gay rights in his State of the Union speech this week, and he should tackle the biggest, most meaningful right of them all: the right to marry.
