We DO need another hero

The video below is possibly the most powerful thing I've heard in a long time.

It's about the passing of Proposition 8 in California (and probably similar propositions in other states the past election day). Prop 8 was for a constitutional amendment that would deny homosexuals the right to marry. Basically, it changes the guarantee of equal rights for all to say that gay people can't get married. The equal rights guarantee is what proponents of gay marriage are using to legalize the practice. Now states are gradually changing their constitutions to eliminate that protection. I don't want to even consider where that slippery slope could lead.

So, without further ado, have a gander at an impassioned plea for some common sense and basic decency.

Keith Olbermann is definitely my Hero of the Week.
