Via here and there and everywhere (links too numerious to mention) on the Marriage Amendement to the U.S. Constitution, come these words from Cheryl Jacques of the Human Rights Campaign:
Cheryl Jacques, president of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay political organization, said the last-minute effort to get votes on two different versions reflected a lack of care in drafting the amendment.Republican Senators must have looked at overnight polls after Rick Santorum's hate filled performance from the Senate Floor yesterday [more in comments, below - ed.]. They're backpedalling as fast as they can.
"I think it is outrageous and frankly surreal that at the 11th hour in this debate, they are literally rewriting the Constitution on the back of a napkin," she said.
Stoopid sumsabitches opened up a pandora's box, and now they don't know how to get the lid back on it.
They're being exposed.
And now they are going to have to make a vote on the record.
Stoopid sumsabitches. Cheney 'em.
