by Jeremy Hooper

So easy for Joe, Mike, Mark Halperin, or anyone else to just see this as a common booking. I get it. Most people don't know what I know. Most people don't see what I see. Most people don't hear what I hear. Most people don't have to put the hours of critical thought that I have to put into this, a key civil rights battle of our time.

If for no other reason, Tony's admitted positioning of same-sex marriage as America's most important issue should make his demonstrated animus pertinent to his punditry. Always.
