Congratulations to Maine, the fifth state in the Union legalizing gay marriage. Way to be adults and give the phrase “freedom and justice for all” literal actuality. It must be feel good to have a governor realistic and mature enough to admit that civil unions are not the same as marriage. I wouldn’t know how that feels, living in Texas – but, hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?
A further benefit for Maine resulting from this landmark bill’s passage is that the state will not likely suffer visits from the likes of Samuel Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. Joe The Plumber, a.k.a. WT King of the Douchemonsters, any time soon. And that’s really the icing on the big LBGT cake. Unless they somehow helicopter him in so that his feet only touch the grounds of the Bush Kennebunkport compound. But that land already has psycho conservative cooties only reparable by ceremonial nonreligious exorcising of notable members of the political religious right. I recommend Michele Bachmann and Tom Coburn, for starters.
Really, really, though – it’s a joy to witness the spreading of goodness across the country after the recent widespread wiretapping of well-known journalists, flood of assault weapons, emiminent domain SCOTUS decision, torture of POWs in America’s custody and so, so many more atrocities becoming normalcy in this country.
And remember, Red States (such as mine), gay marriage is coming to a law near you. Maybe not in the very near future, but the future nonetheless. Don’t like it? Move to an intolerant Islamic country. Switch religions and you’ll feel right at home. (hehe. I had to say that because they always tell us to move to Europe if we don’t like the way things are run here. booyah, biotch).
