The journalist and her gal pals over at estrogen-fueled blog Wowowow today discussed gay rights in America. And, in an argument we find valid – and flawed – Smith, Candice Bergen and Lesley Stahl discuss how the States’ death row inmates can marry, but gays still face restrictions.

That’s definitely interesting – and noteworthy – argument, but the gals seem to forget that prisoners in some states can’t vote, while gay people can. If anything, this pink v. prisoner comparison shows the vast flaws in America’s democratic system. But that’s just our opinion.
Smith and Stahl go on to discuss the forthcoming election and the importance of potential judicial nominees.

Honey, we want to elect you! Or George Clooney. Or Homer Simpson. Decisions, decisions…
