Speaking of Donald Trump, here’s how he explains his opposition to gay marriage. Via The New York Times:

“It’s like in golf,” he said. “A lot of people—I don’t want this to sound trivial—but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive,” said Mr. Trump, a Republican. “It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”

If you read my coverage of Prop. 8, you know why I oppose denying same-sex couples the chance to marry.

Why yes, that is a photo of Trump and me, just before I got fired.
