Carpetbagger Now Supports Equality

Things are getting interesting in the race for non-gay-marriage-supporting carpetbagger Hillary Clinton's old Senate seat:

The New York Post reports:

In what will likely be read as another sign of his interest in running against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in this year's Democratic primary, ex-Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford Jr. publicly said for the first time that he was in favor of same-sex marriage.

"He supports gay marriage, in the interest of fairness and equality," Ford spokesman Davidson Goldin told The Post.

Ford backed up that statement himself this morning on the "Today Show."

Host Matt Lauer asked, "So you're now in favor of same sex marriage?"

"Civil unions and same-sex marriage, yes," Ford said.

Ford also said there's a "fiction" in language between civil unions and same-sex marriages, and that he now supports gay nuptials because it's the best way to keep equal benefits flowing.

New York has a long and glorious history of carpetbaggers. Robert Kennedy and Hillary Clinton are merely two of the most recent carpetbaggers to represent the Empire State. We welcome Harold Ford with open arms and great enthusiasm.
