I'll admit, I cheered when Rachel Maddow got to the part where she talks about politicians' personal views on marriage equality and the political cowardice that seems to overtake them as soon as they move from "citizen" to "candidate."

Joe Sudbay deemed it "political homophobia" when these cowards mouth words of support, but then turn around and do nothing to advance our civil rights because they're worried about the careers and the next election.

It clocks in at almost 20 minutes, but it's well worth the time to watch.
