Last night I appeared on Current TV’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann to discuss New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s opposition to marriage equality. We also discussed President Barack Obama’s position on the issue. It was an honor to appear on the show because I’ve always enjoyed Keith Olbermann and credit him with turning MSNBC in to a progressive brand. The host has also been a terrific defender of LGBT equality. He’s still doing amazing work at Current TV.
