The Got Hates Fags Amendment, Again
It got through the Senate judiciary committee. Unsurprisingly, Feingold comes off looking pretty good:
A U.S. Senate panel advanced a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on Thursday as the committee chairman shouted "good riddance" to a Democrat who walked out of the tense session.How spineless is ol' One Bullet Specter? Glad you asked:
"If you want to leave, good riddance," The Senate Judiciary Chairman, Republican Arlen Specter, told Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russell Feingold, who refused to participate because, he said, the meeting was not sufficiently open to the public.
"I've enjoyed your lecture too. See you later, Mr. Chairman," Feingold told the Pennsylvania senator before storming out of the private room where the meeting took place.
Specter said he voted for the amendment because he thought it should be taken up by the full Senate, even though he does not back it.UPDATE: More raw sewage from the world's most overrated deliberative body; the senate has passed an amendment to declare English the national language by a sizable margin. Bill Frist rolls around in shit:
Another quick post to let you know that I am co-sponsoring Senator Inhofe’s amendment to declare English as the national language of the United States.
