NewsBusters: Vulcan Hand Sign = Support for Gay Marriage
Topic: NewsBusters

A Sept. 16 NewsBusters post by Kyle Drennan is headlined, "CBS's Rodriguez Shows Support for Gay Marriage." And how exactly did CBS "Early Show" co-host Maggie Rodriguez perform such a sinister act? Drennen explains:

On Tuesday’s CBS Early Show, co-host Maggie Rodriguez interviewed ‘Star Trek’ actor George Takei and his partner Brad Altman about their wedding following California legalizing gay marriage and asked: "George, how was the wedding? Was it everything you dreamed of?" At the end of the segment, Takei declared: "And may sweet equality live long and prosper," making the Star Trek Vulcan hand sign. Rodriguez showed her solidarity, making the hand sign back and replying: "Let me do it. Same to you." [boldface in original]

No, Rodriguez could not possibly have been a fangirl who couldn't pass up the opportunity to do the Vulcan hand sign with a real, live "Star Trek" actor. Drennen wants you to believe that endorsement of gay marriage was the only possible interpretation.
