Lying Liar Lies

Posted by Dan Savage on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 at 9:44 AM

Rush Limbaugh yesterday:

So same-sex marriage and wiping out the Defense of Marriage Act is now a civil right. People that oppose it are bigots and nobody wants to be a bigot. But the thing you can't say is that if left to a vote of the people, same-sex marriage loses every time it's on the ballot. I think so far it's 30 times. State ballots, initiatives and other things, and the Defense of Marriage Act at the federal level. It's never passed. You wouldn't know that, would you, by listening to the pop culture media? You would think that this issue has overtaken everything, it's the most important issue to everybody and anybody, and that it has massive public support. And yet every time it's been voted on by the people it has gone down to defeat. That's why the courts have to get involved, because the people, according to the left, won't do the right thing.

Someone needs to let Rush know about the polls. And someone needs to let Rush know that marriage equality has been approved at the ballot box—in four states. And someone needs to tell Rush to go fuck himself.
