Video: S.E. Cupp on GOP's needed evolution

by Jeremy Hooper

S.E. Cupp first came on my radar for what remains one of the most irksome columns I've ever come across, wherein she argued that non-supporters of equal marriage rights (like herself at the time) should retain the easy ability to hold straight bachelorette parties in gay bars. I'm glad to see she has come around in the subsequent years:

Let's not kid ourselves—there's *a lot* of "coming around" left to do. Lest we forget, the most recent GOP presidential nominee ran on the idea that a Federal Marriage Amendment is a good thing. And of course no LGBT rights bill in American history, in any state in this nation, has passed with anything close to majority support from the state or national GOP. So folks like Cupp have their work cut out for them.

But I do sincerely appreciate those who are trying. I think most of my GOP pals know that.
