"Gay Marriage" issue dies with a thud

Early in the campaign, Karl Rove and Pat Robertson said they were going to make "gay marriage" a central issue of the campaign so they could take their tired old "family values" horse for another ride, which they hoped to use as a cover-up of their failed war and economic policies. The idea, of course, was to take the issue of gay marriage out of the hands of the states and make it illegal for gays to marry thruout the country, enshrining bigotry and discrimination against certain people in the US Constitution, something not done since the infamous 18th Century article that defined a black male as "three-fifths of a man". The whole idea was to paint Kerry as a Sodomite-loving sinful family hater.

Problem is, the scheme blew up in there faces. Members of their own party refused to support it. Today, just as happened in the Senate, 57 Republicans refused to join with Tom Delay's homophobe Christian Right stooges, and the proposed Amendment was torpedoed in the House. Do you think this issue is over for this election? Aren't you glad it is? Do you think America has accepted gay marriage?

Kirk , you are so out there its scary! Do you even understand that many, many states are taking it upon themselves to ratify laws making gay marriage illegal in their state? Do you think they are doing this because their citizens approve of gay marriage? Do you live in a cave? About 90% of all Americans are against gay marriage. Gay marriage will never, never gain any acceptance in the U.S.

I'm happy to see that despite the 90% of the public (uh, yeah...) that does not support Gay Marriage, their representatives were smart enough to turn away from legislating this descrimination. If 90% of the public is truly against Gay Marriage, I'm going back to my Hamiltonian ways.

It is just about legal in all the West Coast states, just a matter of time now that Ahnold has come out in favor of legalizing it. New York, New Jersy, not far behind, and it is already legal in two of the New England states. But the real problem for the "90%" crowd is that, absent a constitutional amendment, the existing anti-gay marriage laws are all going to be struck down as unconstitutional under the Equal Protection clause.

Marilyn Musgrave, the bill's sponser, couldn't even get all the colorado republicans to vote for it.

Gotta love Colorado politics, we have the anti gay vote locked up (with Sen. Wayne Allard putting the same anti gay leg to a vote in the Senate) and the anti mexican vote secured with Rep Tom Tancredo.

For Senate they are running Bush Lite, Pete Coors, another inheirited millionare who's going after the greedy trial lawyers.

Somewhere in Denver there is a gay mexican lawyer hiding under the bed.

Colorado was a dramatic mix of liberals (free spirits in the mountains) and conservatives (cowboys in the plains) when I lived there years ago. It sounds like the cowpoke won the war.....
