Meh Culpa

Meh Culpa: On Medved and full civil unions, sort of

After thoroughly considering Elton John’s declaration against marriage, Michael Medved says he’s willing to accept civil unions with all the rights of marriage, both civil and federal,  and Andrew Sullivan asks:

So if the far right now favors comprehensive civil unions at the state and federal level, why won’t Obama propose a federal civil unions bill? Or will the Human Rights Campaign try to dissuade him?

::dies laughing::

That was a good one.  The HRC has been criticized for all sorts of things after its pitiful Prop 8 fund raising effort, but Sullivan’s remark is priceless.

In any case,

A) Elton John is a British citizen so he doesn’t get to say

and

B) The UK has had civil partnerships, with full marriage benefits, since 2004.

Sheesh.
