    I saw that today...McCain handled it really well, didn't back down, but was gracious and Ellen was respectful as well.

    Well she doesn't make me want to sleep with women, I did that for too long and just don't know what I was thinking. But I do have such respect for her. She really is an amazing person.

    I believe that after Madonna dies, that Ellen shall be my new queen.

    I have promised the Old Ladies that I work with that we will see legal gay marriage in THEIR lifetime...
    It won't happen if we continue to accept legal unions...Lucky for my partner- My employer offers domestic partner benefits..Unfortunately the Federal government requires it to be after tax since our relationship is not a "real" one??!!??

    Married couples and common law are recognized as pretax..And they get the married tax break...

    Kuddooo's to Ellen for handling it so well...I get angry (inside) when my straight family and friends get married ( I know jeolousy is so unbecoming)...

    My respect and admiration for Ellen has gone up 100 fold for her saying that to McCain.

    Thank you Ellen. Thank you for being my voice.

    That was a great moment for Ellen, speaking truth to power, at the end of which McCain was forced to admit (without explicitly saying so) that the illegality of gay marriage has no legal, ethical or practical basis.

    So, let me get this 'straight', McCain -- we get to pay taxes just like everyone else, but the government you intend to be the chief executive of will still deny us basic civil and human rights?

    Hmmm. Let me think about that for a second.icon_rolleyes.gif

    hmmmmm. love the silence after mccain speaks. she presents example and an argument about equality, and all he has to say is "i just believe in the unique status...". bravo mccain!

    I hate having to cater to the religious right too. If you guys would just become Republicans it wouldn't be a problem. What a fabulous party it would be.
