Ellen DeGeneres to Wed at Bush Ranch?

After the California Supreme Court lifted a law banning same sex marriage, Ellen DeGeneres announced her plans to marry longtime companion Portia de Rossi.

During a taping for an appearance on Ellen’s show, presumptive GOP nominee John McCain informed DeGeneres that they don’t exactly see eye to eye when it comes to same sex matrimony.

“We just have a disagreement, and I, along with many others, wish you a lot of happiness,” McCain said.

DeGeneres replied with a question: “So you will walk me down the aisle?”

After the audience laughter subsided, McCain responded, “Touche.”

The following day President Bush's daughter, newlywed Jenna Bush Hager, also taped a show for Ellen.

During the taping, after Jenna showed Ellen a wedding pic, the TV talk show host noted, “So, the ranch was a great place to get married – it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures or bother you, really.”

“So, can we borrow it for our wedding?” “Can we get the ranch?” DeGeneres asked.

Without missing a beat, Jenna responded, “Sure.”

Sitting right next to Jenna and listening intently as the Bush family ranch was booked for the wedding of Ellen and Portia was—First Lady Laura Bush.
