Gay bashing amendment fails

Hey, the image might be harsh but that is what this stupid attempt to amend the Constitution boiled down to...discrimination, hatred, and bigotry. It's that simple and don't be fooled, the Republican party is pandering to the scum of their party purely for political gain.

With everything that's happening in this country and around the world, the powers that be are more interested in securing their base than fixing the problems they created for everyone.

Shameless indeed.

John Aravosis at AMERICAblog brings up an very interesting point.
This vote was better than expected. The gay bashers were claiming that they would have a majority. Our side picked up two GOP votes, Specter and Judd Gregg. Chris Dodd and Jay Rockefeller, who would have voted with us, were absent. Chuck Hagel, who would have voted against us, is in Omaha with the President. If everyone was present, the vote would have been 50-50. That means the Vice President would have had to break the tie. Now, that would have been interesting.

Next up on this list...flag burning.

Ah, this is your Republican leadership at work. Hey, you get what you voted for.
