Video: Republican Convention's biggest star backs the freedom to marry

by Jeremy Hooper

His RNC speech will go down as one of this decade's most bizarre political moments and most likely did real damage to the Romney/Ryan brand. But I dod appreciate him noting his support for an essential freedom that his chosen party (and ticket) continue to turn into a "controversy":

First off—put your feet down, young man. There could be an invisible President on that seemingly empty coffee table.

Second—you do know, Clint, that the man to whom you lent your clout has signed a pledge that is about as anti-"live and let live" as you can possibly get, right? If not, you should know it. That way, if invited to speak again, maybe rather than imply that the President of the United States has told his rival to go f*** himself, you can ask your chosen party to stop screwing over certain kinds of Americans? Perhaps?
