Supporting the reversal of California’s Gay Marriage Ban (Proposition 8) is actually the “conservative” thing to do, argues co-hosts Glenn Gaudet and Jeff Kimball. Marriage is about two individuals who love each other, and the government’s involvement should only be to acknowledge that from a legal and tax perspective. They explain how the politics of this ruling will play out at a federal and state level, and how President’ Obama’s position isn’t likely to win him votes from his Democratic base. If the Supreme Court decides to take this case (and those in favor of the reversal should hope they don’t), they caution listeners that this is not a slam dunk case, and that Kagan and Kennedy could very well be the swing votes. At around the 37 minute mark, Glenn explains why Net Neutrality is threatened by a potential Google-Verizon alliance. At the 48 minute mark, they close the show by talking about some Congressional races, including Sharon Angle, and races in Illinois, California and Pennsylvania.
