Republican New York Senator Comes Out For Gay Marriage With Awesome Quote

Senator Roy McDonald.  

 “You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn’t black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing,” McDonald, 64, told reporters. 

“You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing. 

 “I’m tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I’m trying to do the right thing, and that’s where I’m going with this.”

And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women - except, of course —those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff, But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years - whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know - actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.

Tina Fey

On a 251-to-175 vote, the House approved a bill prohibiting federal money to be used for insurance plans that cover abortions. The bill goes beyond current federal law, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortions. It would also wipe out tax breaks for private employers who provide coverage if their plans offer abortion services and would eliminate the ability to pay for an abortion with pretax dollars from a flexible spending plan.

Michele Bachmann: … all the surplus in Social Security is a big vault stuffed with IOU notes, there’s not one dime sitting in there.
Anthony Weiner: Are you surprised to learn, Congresswoman Bachmann, that we don’t have a room filled with dimes?

I want to move to New York just so Anthony Weiner can be my representative. But I suppose I’ll settle for my current rep — one of the champions of the health care reform bill.

Congress Pushes For Official "Ten Commandments Weekend" Starting This May

Congress would just like to take a moment to blur that useless “church and state” line, if that’s cool with everyone.

On April 7, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced H. Res. 211, a resolution “expressing support for designation of the first weekend of May as Ten Commandments Weekend (expertly times to coincide with the National Day of Prayer) to recognize the significant contributions the Ten Commandments have made in shaping the principles, institutions, and national character of the United States.”
