Another prominent Republican has come out in support of same-sex marriage — or at least, in support of one particular same-sex marriage.

Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara served as an official witnesses Saturday at the Maine wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, co-owners of a Kennebunk general store. Thorgalsen posted a photo on Facebook of the 41st commander-in-chief signing a set of documents for them at an outdoor celebration: “Getting our marriage license witnessed!”

I heard of someone who wanted to tie the knot with her Great Dane. Maybe G.H.W. Bush will be witness to that ceremony, as well.

Bush is wearing his clown socks just as he did about three months ago when he went to the White House to kiss Obama’s ass.

The Post’s intent here was to portray homosexual marriage as so normal that even a Republican like GHWB supports it. The average Post reader has no idea what real conservatism is.

The Bushes aren't real Texans. They moved to Texas only to escape the "wimp" factor and appeal to conservatives.

Their Texas badge should be revoked.

She doesn’t need to see this.

I don't even go to second marriages of divorced friends; I sure wouldn't go to lesbian nups. No need to speechify (unless they ask) --- I just say, "I'm sorry, I won't be attending."

I had some awkward moments when a single woman friend (in the prolife movement!!) made the decision to get inseminated at a clinic and raise a son with her mom. Considering the circles we run around in, she was not much surprised by less-than-congratulatory reactions. She said that, curiously, her Protestant friends tended to say, "Well, at least you didn't have sex with some guy", and the Catholics tended to say,"Well, at least you should have had sex with the guy!"

Wasn’t he shoved onto Ronny? That’s the way I always understood it.

I have long detested that sorry excuse for a man, clown socks and all. Would never trust him with my house plant.

His going there was his business. His official witnessing {signature} is political which makes it our business.

How I wish I could go back in time and take back all those votes I gave to both Bushes.

Oh, well. At least I finally put my foot down and refused to give my vote to that gay-marriage facilitator Romney. May that SOB burn in hell.

The entire bush gang are rabid global statists.

Bush 41 couldn't wait to lurch back left after Reagan.

I loathe the Bush family -- arrogant, global elitists.

It’s sickening that Clinton was better at economics and restraining government growth than the Bush dynasty.
