Ellen Degeneres on Prop 8

 

I just love this woman…

My Political Point… And I Do Have One

You know how usually I talk about cell phones or kitty cats or cheese pizza… well, this is sorta like that… without the cell phones, the cats, or the pizza.

There’s a California Proposition on the ballot that’s a little confusing.  It’s Proposition 8.  It’s called, “The California Marriage Protection Act” – but don’t let the name fool you.  It’s not protecting anyones marriage.  Not yours.  Not mine.

The wording of Prop 8 is tricky. It’s like if someone asked you, “You don’t want dessert, right?”  But you do want dessert so you say, “Yes,” which really means you don’t want dessert.  And if you say, “No,” which means you do want dessert – it sounds like you don’t.  Either way, you don’t get what you want.  See – confusing.  Just like Prop 8.

So, in case I haven’t made myself clear, I’m FOR gay marriage.  And in order to protect that right – please VOTE NO on Proposition 8.  And now that you’re informed, spread the word.  I’m begging you.  I can’t return the wedding gifts – I love my new toaster.
