Evan Bayh, Indiana's (thank God) out-going Senator, was on Morning Joe in a rather brain-dead segment talking about Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johanson kissing. If you want to know how un-cool Bayh is, while everyone's making silly, forgettable, and dorky comments, Bayh had to jump in and say:
I'm glad it was past my kids' bed time.
Evan Bayh ran for governor and then Senator on the perfect, home-grown family image (despite his corruption and his wife's huge income from her position on the board of WellPoint she was coincidentally offered when Evan won his Senate seat). So of course he'd bring his kids into the conversation, his perfect twins who'd just crawl into a corner and cry in the fetal position if they saw the horror of two women kissing.
He's not running for Senate so I guess he's just letting himself go. Even though he says he supports LGBT legislation, I think comments like this go a long way to show why Democrats in Congress haven't made much progress on our issues.
It's a Bradley Effect sort of thing - they say it's wrong that we can lose our jobs because of who we are because saying otherwise polls badly and is homophobic, but when push comes to shove they think we're kind of icky so they just don't want the topic to come up. Evan Bayh's a perfect example.
Video of him on Morning Joe is at Glaadblog (sorry, I can't embed it here), and video of the kiss is after the jump.
