Friday’s Big Gay Marriage Schadenfreude Moment

The folks at KUTV interviewed Gayle Ruzicka, head of the Utah Eagle Forum, on Friday.  I’ve met her in a number of settings and she’s normally ready with a clear, simple, and well thought out talking point or six – it’s clear from her comments that she was caught every bit as off guard as the rest of Utah with the court’s decision.  Watching her fumble for answers and rely on empty rhetoric was a moment of sweetness for me.  It’s rare to see such a practiced public speaker do badly and Gayle Ruzicka is a practiced public speaker and a consistent opponent of anything and everything that might benefit gay people.

    Ruzicka has to compete with interviews and video of happy couples showing off their marriage certificates, and she knows it.

    Ruzicka has gone up against statues of David.

    She’s prepared.

    I’m just glad we live in such an enlightened, post-homophobic society.

    Thank you Governor Herbert.

    Has the KUTV interview with Ruzicka been scrubbed?

    Wow! I didn’t realize she had THAT much influence.

      The link on the page was broken because of a typo. It should be working now

      (Sorry if fixing that bothered you, Glenden)

    Thanks Nathan.

    It’s nice to know that fossils can talk. I just wish that the young could get on TV. They have a lot to say.

    I found this. :)

    Don’t ask me for the meaning. I have no idea.

    Well, a new day has dawned. Has Governor Gary Herbert changed his spots?

    Larry, That musica still goes on…but, I think I’m getting to the end. I think.
