Olbermann: GOP Chair Steele’s Gay Marriage Position ‘Laughable’


Keith Olbermann attacks GOP Chair Michael Steele's ridiculous argument that casting same-sex marriage as the enemy of small business would help the Republican Party. Over the weekend, the AP reported:

"Steele said that was just an example of how the party can retool its message to appeal to young voters and minorities without sacrificing core conservative principles. Steele said he used the argument weeks ago while chatting on a flight with a college student who described herself as fiscally conservative but socially liberal on issues like gay marriage. 'Now all of a sudden I've got someone who wasn't a spouse before, that I had no responsibility for, who is now getting claimed as a spouse that I now have financial responsibility for,' Steele told Republicans at the state convention in traditionally conservative Georgia. 'So how do I pay for that? Who pays for that? You just cost me money.'''
