Sure

Rob McKenna’s wife is right about marriage equality (h/t).

In an email to The Seattle Times, Marilyn McKenna added that while she and her husband disagree on the subject, they respect each other’s opinions. “I believe that being pro-gay marriage is completely consistent with being a Republican too. It’s a matter of personal choice that the government has no right to interfere in,” she wrote.

She added in a second email: “Both the government and the Republican Party need to get the hell out of people’s bedrooms and get a life!”

Great. I mean sure. I’m glad to have Republicans on board the human decency train. Of course that’s easy enough to say after marriage equality passed, and when it’s a done deal. I hope this is part of a genuine reassessment on the part of the GOP, but I fear they’ll be just as backwards on whatever is the next issue of basic dignity in the state as they mostly were on this one.

    Yeah, Marilyn remains a Republican because her husband’s political career depends upon it. When the majority of women are married to career Republican politicians the gender gap will disappear.

    Maybe House Republican leader Cathy McMorris-Rodgers should give Marilyn a call and straighten her out?

    GOP Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers says the Republican “war on women” is a “liberal myth” ginned up by Democrats to discredit Mitt Romney and his party.
