On Friday, actress Portia de Rossi appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel" and offered this terrific tongue-in-cheek PSA, a shot at all those Proposition 8 supporters so undone by the horror of gay marriage.

Standing in front of a wedding portrait that reminds me what a classy little snifflefest her own ceremony was, the actress says: "When I got married, all I was thinking about was my own joy at committing to my partner for the rest of my life. I didn't think about all the people I was hurting by getting married. That was selfish." Indeed it was! It's high time someone reached across the (wedding) aisle to those sad little protesters.
