Cindy McCain Comes Out for Gay Marriage

Cindy McCain has come out against Prop 8 by joining California's NOH8 campaign. I love it whenever women make the two-party tyranny system appear to be irrelevant. (Thanks yttik.)

Cindy McCain -- wife of 2008 GOP presidential candidate John McCain --has taken a high profile position contrary to her husband's on the issue of same sex marriage, by starring in a new ad to support the fight against California's Prop. 8.

NOH8: Aligning yourself with the platform of gay marriage as a Republican still tends to be very stigmatic, but Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn't matter - marriage equality isn't a Republican issue any more than it is a Democratic issue. It's about human rights, and everybody being treated equally in the eyes of the law that runs and protects this country. (via The Advocate)
