They’re not even trying to be truthful any more, are they?

Conservative wise guy Michael Medved claimed today that no state has ever banned gay marriage.  “That’s a liberal lie,” he says.

Seriously, he said that.  I am not making this up.medved

Thirty state Constitutions and dozens of state laws which are easily found contradict him, as well as about half a dozen Federal Court decisions striking down those very laws.

What he is doing, besides lying, is being deceptive. His claim, which is only accepted by the gullible and the idiotic, is that gays can always get married!  There’s no prohibition to gays getting married!  Just not to each other.

Got that?

I can’t believe he actually believes this is a legitimate argument.   It’s the same one used by bigots who fought against interracial marriage.

Anyway, I certainly hope the GOP keeps this up, as it is just another nail in their coffin.  Eventually, the current Republican party will die and perhaps a new GOP not run by the extremists will rise from the ashes, phoenix-like, and then maybe we can get back to the days when we had two parties debating issues instead of one party trying to get things done and the other one just saying “no” to everything.

  1. There was a time in the ’70s and ’80s when Medved involved in interesting things like “Whatever Happened to the Class of ’65?” and “The Golden Turkey Awards.” In recent years he’s become like Dennis Miller, someone trotted out for the true believers on the far right and of little interest to anyone else.


  2. I wonder if the Koch brothers and their tea party operatives are purposely trying to change GOP from “Grand Ol’ Party” to mean “Grand Oppressive Party” or “Greatly Obsessive Party” instead?
