"The genie is not getting put back in the bottle," Rush said

Rush Limbaugh allowed on his radio show Wednesday that gay marriage "nationwide" is inevitable, regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on Proposition 8 and DOMA. Opponents of gay marriage, he said, are being told that "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."
