rush-limbaugh-radioMaybe Time magazine is right since conservatives are seemingly throwing in the towel left and predominately right on the whole gay marriage thing.

First Bill O’Reilly nearly gave Stephen Colbert a satirical heart attack with his ambivalent endorsement and now soft-boiled potato and Republican stalwart Rush Limbaugh has weighed in on the issue.

On his radio show yesterday, Limbaugh called the fight against marriage equality “lost” and that it is now “inevitable,” regardless of what the Supreme Court decides on Prop 8 and DOMA.

On Wednesday, Limbaugh said same-sex marriage opponents are being told “the country is changing and you better get with it and understand it. The genie is not getting put back in the bottle.”

“And I think that’s right,” he added. “I don’t care what this court does with this particular ruling, Proposition 8. I think the inertia is clearly moving in the direction that there is going to be gay marriage at some point nationwide.”

So it’s not so much an enthusiastic “gay marriage is happening!” so much as a defeated “ugh, gay marriage…FINE!”

Limbaugh did, however, take issue with O’Reilly “marginalizing” opponents as “Bible-thumpers,” but argues that he and his lost the battle because they allowed the term “marriage” to be “bastardized.”

Despite these conservative concessions, however, the fight is far from over so don’t rest on those liberal laurels quite yet, kids. Opinion may be in our favor, but as long as there are laws on the books that discriminate against LGBT people, there’s no real victory.
