Last night on the Rachel Maddow Show, Ted Olson and David Boies came on to talk about the Prop 8 trial. This is just the latest stop in what has been a full-on media blitz from the pro-equality side. It's an interesting contrast from the Prop 8 supporters, who are afraid to even have their testimony videotaped and shown during the trial.

I think having these two out on the news and morning shows is definitely moving the discussion on marriage equality forward. I also think the American people will notice the crickets chirping from the Prop 8 supporters- like Maddow says, "Where's the anti-gay pride?"

Kudos for the savvy media and public opinion campaign from Olson/Boies!

The MSNBC video isn't loading for me. They haven't been the past couple of days. Anyone else having that problem?
