I have made fun of The View’s resident conservative, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, in private conversation, in public, in dreams, and in song many times over the years. Like many of her conservative compatriots, she tends to be wrong about Most Things.
But on marriage equality? Even Hasselbeck has come around:
“I actually support gay marriage,” said Hasselbeck. She added, “I think the gay marriage thing would definitely surprise people. I mean, for some people, it will surprise them to the point that they won’t want to hear it. ‘No, that can’t be, I really want to have this sort of idea of her in my head,’ so I sort of rain on their parade there.”
Dear Elected Democrats: I think it’s okay for you to stop being so politically homophobic now. Because at this point, for a Democrat to pussyfoot around the marriage equality issue is approximately as cowardly as a Democrat opposing the Park 51 Cordoba House community center project.
