CNN’s S.E. Cupp and wingnut freak show Ralph Reed tangled last night in a debate about gay marriage and the feuding Cheney sisters. Evan McMurry has the recap:
“Isn’t it time that your wing of the Republican Party accept and embrace good Republicans like the Log Cabin Republicans, like GOProud, like Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), like Rob Portman (R-OH)?” Cupp asked. “Don’t you think it’s time to recognize that in some ways the tide is turning, that we should be more inclusive of these values, without having to change our personal opinions of them?”
“If the tide had truly turned, then you wouldn’t have thirty-six states and 70% of the American people defining it as a man and a woman, and you wouldn’t need the courts to impose it,” Reed said. “The same Millennials who today are more inclined to support same-sex marriage and are also more pro-life than their parents were. So the country became more pro-choice in the 70s and 80s and in the 90s and the last ten years became more pro-life. Just because something is moving in a particular direction, it’s an analytical error to assume it’s going to continue in that trend.”
Watch Reed spin the lies!
