As we watched The Simpsons last night, I commented to Liz that they were sure gonna get a lot of letters on this one. The episode featured Marge's sister Patti coming out of the closet and a whole mess of gay marriages.


L. Brent Bozell, president of the Parents Television Council, criticized "The Simpsons" for addressing the issue of same-sex marriage, though he said he hadn't seen the episode.

"At a time when the public mood is overwhelmingly against gay marriage, any show that promotes gay marriage is deliberately bucking the public mood," he said.

I love that 1) he hasn't seen the episode, and 2) he thinks that our country would be better off if ideas that "buck the public mood" were kept out of site.

Where the hell do these people come from?
