As expected, the discriminatory anti-gay marriage amendment is DOA. Even a majority of the Pubs themselves are against it. Meanwhile, Repub Sen Rick Santorum, the guy who can’t tell the difference between a gay man and a dog, was one of several to repeat things only he has heard.
“Marriage is hate. Marriage is a stain. Marriage is an evil thing. That’s what we hear. People who stand for traditional marriage are haters, they’re bashers, they’re mean-spirited, they’re intolerant. … Well, we’re not,” he added.
Heard where, Rick? Nobody ever said ‘marriage was evil’. We said you are intolerant of gays because you are. None of us, outside the confines of your fevered brain where tiny voices tell you to kill, ever said marriage was a ‘stain’. It’s just you. Rick.
Meanwhile, Wayne Allard, Repub from Colorado, had his tinfoil hat locked down with sheet metal screws.
“There is a master plan out there from those who want to destroy the institution of marriage to, first of all, begin to take this issue in a few select courts throughout this country at the state level,” said Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo. Pointing to rulings in Vermont and Massachusetts, he said that “once they get their favorable rulings from activist judges … they want to take it to the federal courts and they’ll eventually move it to the Supreme Court.”
Yikes! A ‘Master Plan to Destroy the Institution of Marriage!’ Where’s Superman? Where’s Spiderman? We Must Stop These Dastardly, Evil Villians, Else They Will DESTROY CIVILIZATION!
Wayne. Babe. Get a grip. You gotta start reading something besides comic books, man. They’re warping what little brain you’ve got to work with. Your gray cells are oozing pus, atrophied from disuse. Try getting through at least one book without pictures this summer. It’ll do you good. Therapy might not be a bad idea, either.
Jaunty Bill Frist promises we ain’t seen the last of this, no sirree.
“This issue is not going away,” Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee said in a virtual concession that the measure would fall short of the 60 votes needed to advance past a Wednesday test vote. “Will it be back? Absolutely, yes,” he added.
Meanwhile, back in the House, Denny Hastert was moving swiftly to keep the pandering to wacko right-wing Xtians alive in the months before the election.
The Senate moved toward a showdown as House Republicans pursued a different plan — seeking to pass legislation rather than an amendment.
Except of course that without the Amendment, the legislation is un-Consitutional. Or it is until Big Tony Scalia goes to shoot some more tame ducks with Little Dick.
You know, it’s impossible to satirize insanity.

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE CAT LITTER! If Republicans succeed in heading down this slippery slope, where will they stop? Who will stand up for you when they come knocking on your door?To me, this is not about whether or not gays should be allowed to marry (hey, if you’re opposed to gay marriage, don’t have one….). It’s about ensuring that Republicans are not allowed to nibble away at the civil rights of an entire class of Americans. When they are done there, do you really think they’re going to stop? Not if you have anything resembling a grip on reality.
