Ever the voice of reason, Whoopi Goldberg makes several points about Prop 8 crystal-clear: 1.) anyone against gays and lesbians should meet their families–and really talk to them; 2.) there are too many orphans out there that no one wants to adopt to ban two men or two women from caring for them (in reference to Arkansas’ new ban on adoption by gay parents); and 3.) the gays have a wicked sense of humor (hence signs like “Brigham Young had 19 Wives–I only want one” and “No More My Nice Gay”).
Elizabeth Hasselbeck, of course, the strident Republican, defends the voters who took away the rights of gays and lesbians. It’s funny to watch her try to argue on the same intellectual level as Whoopi, Sheri, or Barbara. She is so steadfast in her principles–literally blinded by her beliefs–that she doesn’t listen to others or reason, spinning the argument from one point to another like a pinball. What a hot mess.
