1. Today Cindy McCain announced her support for gay marriage and released her pose for the popular "No H8" series shot by photographer Adam Bouska.
2. Megan McCain continues her outspoken campaign in favor of marriage equality. And she's certainly not backing down just because GW's GOP student group pulled out of hiring her for a speech after they found out she's also talking to the campus gay group.
3. Margaret Hoover, a Fox commentator and great- granddaughter of Herbert Hoover, posted an essay earlier this week called Why I'm Joining the Fight for Marriage Equality urging her fellow Republicans to follow Ted Olson's arguments and endorse gay marriage.
So, given these conservative women's evolving views, where is Michelle Obama? We know where her husband is. And more and more people are calling him out on it.
Yesterday, Gavin Newsom discussed Obama with the NYT: “I am very upset by what he’s not done in terms of rights of gays and lesbians. I understand it tactically in a campaign, but at this point I don’t know. There is some belief that he actually doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage. But it’s fundamentally inexcusable for a member of the Democratic Party to stand on the principle that separate is now equal, but only on the basis of sexual orientation. We’ve always fought for the rights of minorities and against the whims of majorities.”
Lamenting Maine and Prop 8 ten days ago, Jane Lynch told the Guardian: "Shouldn't there be safeguards against the majority voting on the rights of a minority? If people voted on civil rights in the 60s, it would have never happened. It took somebody like Lyndon Johnson going, 'F all of you! I'm going to do this.'" She pauses for a moment, then says, "Obama won't do it. He's a huge disappointment to me."
