I haven't been very nice to S.E. Cupp in the past, but I really believe this was a genuinely emotional moment for her that we should applaud.

Watching the reaction at the Supreme Court this morning, Cupp was visibly moved by what she was seeing.

"Those people are not pariahs, they are patriots," Cupp declared.

She called on Republicans to actually look at the people behind the ruling, who only wanted the same human dignity and respect the rest of us have.

She continued, "I would just challenge the members of my party to look at the faces and ask yourselves whether they deserve the same dignity the rest of us get to enjoy."

"We are going to become relics if we don't get to where these people are. It's time for the politics to shift on this," Cupp concluded.

It's nice once in awhile to be able to applaud a conservative for being intellectually honest.

Can you help us out?
