No love for Ellen

John McCain was on Ellen the other day and of course they discussed gay marriage. This man is running to be the next President of the United States and yet, as Ellen pointed out, he is stuck in the mindset that we are all not created equal.

From Dlisted.com
Johnny doesn’t believe in gay marriage. Duh. Ellen used the opportunity to voice her opinion, “I think that it is looked at and some people are saying the same that blacks and women did not have the right to vote. Women just got the right to vote in 1920. Blacks didn’t have the right to vote till 1870. It just feels like there’s this old way of thinking (that) we are not all the same. We are all the same people. All of us. You’re no different than I am. Our love is the same.” Ellen is right. We are all the same people. Well, except for Paris Hilton. She’s a dirty animal.

Ellen went on to say, ” It sounds to me like saying well you can sit there (points in one direction), you just can’t sit there (points in another direction). That’s what it sounds like to me. It doesn’t feel inclusive. It feels isolated. It feels like we aren’t owed the same things and the same wording.”

John responded, “I’ve heard you articulate that position in a very eloquent fashion. We just have a disagreement and I, along with many, many others wish you every happiness.” Lies.

Ellen finished with a joke, “Thank you. So you’ll walk me down the aisle? Is that what you said?”
