Bill Maher on Majority Support for Marriage Equality: "It's your turn, Obama." (video)

Bill Maher at the PETA screening of I Am An An...Image via WikipediaComedian Bill Maher took on the Do-Nothing Democrats and President Obama for their lack of evolution on marriage equality Friday night in the New Rules segment of his HBO show Real Time. He also rightly recognizes that prominent Republicans are actually ahead of the curve.

"New Rule: now that a Cheney, a McCain, and a Bush have come out to support gay marriage, it's your turn Obama."
Via Queerty:
"I'd like to congratulate the leadership of Democratic party who really stood up for right," says Maher. "I'd like to, but I can't." Because they're all pussies. "Unlike the Democrats, when Republicans believe in things that the public doesn't, their response is: 'Fuck it, we'll make them believe.' Like attacking Iraq, to avenge 9/11. Like convincing a country that badly wanted health care reform, that they actually didn't want it." Victoria Jackson said Glee is forcing "the gay thing" down our throats. If only that were enough to convince politicians to attempt it.
