  1. Rand Paul is such an idiot. His solution would result in country where straight white Christian couples are benefited everywhere, but same-sex, mixed-religion, mixed-race, or even re-marriage couples face frequent or even widespread discrimination.

    And no, I am not going to be blamed for ACTUALLY destroying marriage, Rand.

  2. Chris Hayes informs you, and is not hard to look at. That is all.

  3. I am no fan of Rand Paul, but I have wondered how marriage equality would be faring if the case in favor of it was being argued as a contract between willing adult parties rather than a civil rights matter. After all, state laws generally define marriage as a civil contract and two persons of the same gender can enter into other contracts that are governed by state law -- business partnerships, sales contracts, mortgages.

  4. For some reason I always thought Australia was much more progressive and forward-thinking but increasingly it seems to be not the case.

  5. Rand isn't as bad as some in the GOP (not saying much), but he is obviously an idiot likely to become a lot like his dad, and I find it a joke that he's considered the most high profile libertarian in this country (though he is barely one).

    I'd love to ask Rand and others with his view: what would the historical definition of marriage be? From what I know, it had nothing to do with the civil sphere at all. And that would be at least consistent with his supposedly "libertarian" philosophy. I'd love to see him run on a platform that's going to completely abolish civil marriage and see how many votes he'd get.

  6. Rand Paul looks so much like the Scarecrow on the Wizard of OZ and he doesn't have any courage either based on the BS coming out of his Scarecrow mouth.

  7. bamjaya,
    I totally agree with you and I too like Chris Hayes. The only problem for me is that he is often hyper and spastic and I can only watch that type of personality for so long before it exhausts me just by listening. I hope his new timeslot works out, but I might suggest he switch to decaffeinated coffee!

  8. Rand Paul is historically an idiot. There is no consistent historical definition of marriage.

    the problem with his being an idiot is that it makes it seem like the anti gay marriage people have an argument when in actuality its a false claim

  9. I didn't know The Ed Show was switching to weekends. I wonder if Ed's big scoop this week - identifying and interviewing the bartender who filmed the infamous Romney 47% video - was the show's way of going out with a bang.

    I love Chris Hayes and will be glad I'll get to see more of him. I don't know why I never bothered to put "Up" on my DVR, and instead relied more on waking up before the sun on weekends (which unfortunately happened rather often) to catch that show.

    Anyway, Chris is geeky hotness personified, so YAY!

  10. Including gay couples in civil marriage no more redefines it than including mixed-race couples once did. The truth is marriage has been continually redefined over time--by straight people--and within their own redefinition of it, there is no rational reason to exclude gay couples. In other words, Rand Paul is an idiot.

  11. Death seems to be the only solution for gay foes. I often read comments about those wishing death upon any one who disagrees. Now the new Pope -- one day in and his demise is being calculated.
    He's only got one lung, if that cheers you up.

  13. And THAT, boys and girls, is one of many examples that let us know that Rand Paul is a big, fat liar when he portrays himself to be a libertarian. Same goes for his slimy father.

  14. Chris Hayes is adorable, but he looks way too smooth (seriously, does he have any body hair) for my taste. I don't trust a man who either waxes off all of his body hair or doesn't grow any.

  15. There is no biblical definition of marriage.

  16. The government is interested in marriage only because there are tax implications.
