I’d go gay for these Republicans

  • NY Sen­a­tor Roy McDon­ald for the most quotable quote of all time (on sup­port­ing New York’s equal mar­riage bill):

Well, fuck it, I don’t care what you think. I’m try­ing to do the right thing.

I would like to have this tat­tooed on my fore­head. Read the awe­some­ness in its entirety here.

  • New Jer­sey Sen­ate pres­i­dent Stephen Sweeney for admit­ting:

I made a deci­sion purely based on polit­i­cal cal­cu­la­tion to not vote for mar­riage equality…I failed in my respon­si­bil­ity as major­ity leader to actu­ally lead. I was wrong.

  • New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who spoke a few weeks ago about the inevitabil­ity of mar­riage equality:

It is not a mat­ter of if, but when. And the ques­tion for every New York state law maker is, Do you want to be remem­bered as a leader on civil rights or an obstructionist?

I believe this is what is known as a rhetor­i­cal ques­tion, but if you are still unsure, read this.

  • The two NY State Sen­ate Repub­li­cans who sup­port the equal mar­riage bill. Who will be the third?
