Tucker Carlson BONUS: Tucker Carlson ("libertarian")

Supports gay marriage.

So, we agree with Tucker Carlson! There's a first time for everything. Swallow your pride. Reward tolerance. Tweet Tucker a quick thanks:

On July 24, 2007, Carlson said on his show, "I'm just for marriage generally. I'm for people making a lifelong commitment. Do you know what I mean? I'm not against gay marriage, actually, and I'm the most right-wing person I know." Carlson later went on to say, "I think, marriage has been a great thing for me, and I think it's a really civilizing force, and I think it would be a civilizing force for gay people, too."
