Oh look, another Politico link.

One of my Senators is one of the nine holdouts. The practical problem I run into here is that he's a reflection of the fact that most of my state is overwhelmingly gap-toothed-inbred-teabagger-stupid, so if he doesn't win, the likely alternative is not just somebody who won't endorse fairness, but somebody who will actively try to beat it to death with the spine of a bible while he screams about smaller government.

I can gripe to him about it all I want, but I have little choice but to vote for him anyway or else I risk helping to put somebody far, far worse in his place. And he knows it.

Because democrats are the ones we have to worry about denying our fellow citizens their basic human rights. Right,  subby?

That list of states read exactly as I expected.

Montana, West Virginia, Missouri and Virginia (lookup the educational rankings for these states and place your palms over your face)

hey submitter, that's the side effect of having a big tent party. getting 100% agreement on everything is harder.

Meanwhile, over on the GOP side of the Senate, support for marriage equality is at 1 out of 45 seats.

Dig the patronizing attitude here:

"a new wave of Democrats who, for a combination of political and personal reasons, have jumped on the same-sex matrimony bandwagon"

Because representing the people who voted for you isn't what our politicians are supposed to do, it's just "bandwagon-jumping". Assholes.

Life outside the echo chamber is frightening.

By the way, when did Politico start running afoul of Fark Dependents' ideological purity filter?

So we're starting to see the narrative change to 'Republicans have always supported same-sex marriage, it's the Democrat Party that opposes it.'

As a party, the DNC needs to take a lesson from the RNC and not give money to candidates who don't fall in line if they plan on getting anything done.

Our Democrat Senator, Kay Hagan, came out in support of gay marriage this week, and immediately began drawing attacks from potential conservative Senatorial opponents on how she was going against "the will of NC" by doing so. One of our conservative Teabag Representatives, Renee Ellmers, even said she would now consider running against Hagan for the Senate seat in 2014.

/hope Ellmers does
//she's in a gerrymandered 'safe' GOP district right now
///rest of the state thinks she's an idiot

Bill Nelson has ties to the right wingers at The Family, Though, considering that the dude manages to find it politically expedient to support abortion I don't know why he can't find his way to support marriage. It's not like he's going to get a primary challenge from the right in Florida and the teabaggers aren't going to vote for him anyway.

I've always wondered, does cognitive dissonance to this extent hurt?

/I sure hope so

Yes, I'm the one that got most of them in. I also got the TPM articles in too, as well as a HuffPo piece and a few other papers. I'm sorry if they all give me material to make headlines out of. Don't shoot the subby.

Hot damn, I put no anti-democratic snark whatsoever in that headline. I have no idea why you're bashing me on the content of a "trolly" headline. I found an article about the Democrats who haven't come out for gay marriage (since we've had a rash of Democrats who have in the last month) so I submitted the story. There was no malice towards them or the party for not supporting gay marriage, it was just an interesting look at who's left to come out in support of it in, what I can only imagine, the next few weeks.

boy you guys look  way too deep into my headlines. It's not a goddamn philosophy course

She's an idiot, but she's not "scream at interns in the hallways" raging asshole on top of that like Virginia Foxx, who is also rumored to be in the running.
