Inspired by what she called President Bush's "vile and hateful comments" against gay marriage, Rosie O'Donnell and longtime girlfriend Kelli Carpenter tied the knot Thursday in San Francisco. They join more than 3,300 other same-gender couples who have married in the city since Feb. 12. Emerging from city hall to thunderous applause from hundreds of spectators, O'Donnell thanked the mayor of San Francisco for taking "this amazing stance for... the thousands and thousands of loving, law-abiding couples." O'Donnell and Carpenter have been together for six years and have four children, one failed Broadway show and a truckload of koosh balls.
