Video: Rep. McMorris Rodgers shows GOP's growing discomfort with resisting marriage equality

by Jeremy Hooper

To be clear, Rep. McMorris Rodgers (R-WA5) is a conservative with an abysmal LGBT rights record. The fifth term congessmember holds a 0% on the Human Rights Campaign's Congressional Scorecard. She's never had any problem opposing us.

Which is why I find this clip fascinating. While McMorris Rodgers again voices her "one man, one woman" marriage stance, just listen to how mealy-mouthed she has suddenly turned. All of a sudden she, someone who voted for a Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006, is all about state's deciding the issue. Plus she leaves the door open for civil unions and other forms of recognition. It's sort of fascinating to hear the growing acceptance of inevitability in even conservative members' voices.

Clip is cued:

To be honest, she sounds like most Democrats circa 2004—and we know how that played out.
