Joe Biden Was for Marriage Equality Before He Was Against It

President Obama previously had the dubious distinction among politicians of being for marriage equality before he was against it. But now he's not alone: his own vice president shares the honor!

Of course, in the case of Obama, he was for it for perhaps 8 years, depending on when he started saying he was against it (after having said he was for it in a questionaire in 1996, which his aides have spun themselves into a frenzy trying to explain). For Joe Biden it was just about 8 minutes.

The walk-back was offensive because it was another slap in the face, a reminder that this "fierce advocate" not only doesn't support full equality but can't tolerate it even among his number two.
