Keith Olbermann speaks out on the importance of gay marriage

 
 

MSBNC talk show host Keith Olbermann devoted his "special comment" tonight to the issue of gay marriage, asking those who voted for Proposition 8 and similar measures, “Why does this matter to you? What is it to you? In a time of impermanence and fly-by-night relationships these people over here want the same chance at permanence and happiness that is your option.”

 

It’s a powerful and emotional speech by a straight person directed to other straight people — and that’s exactly what’s needed if we’re going to win this fight.
