Keith Olbermann comments on Proposition 8 - the funcrunch files


Nov. 11th, 2008 08:06 am Keith Olbermann comments on Proposition 8

Already blogged by several of my friends. I wasn't going to watch it as I figured it was preaching to the choir to me, but I'm so, so glad I did. Direct YouTube URL here in case the embed doesn't work.

A personal note: My parents were married in 1969, just two years after Loving v. Virginia eliminated the last of the laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Like Barack Obama, my own birth would have been deemed illegitimate by many states prior to this decision. I don't see the current civil rights battle as any less important.

Current Mood: impressedimpressed

It's not any less important, because it's the very same battle.

I was practically sobbing when I saw it. Keith is full of epic win.
