  5. Well, the Republican Party has made its decision. They don't want y'all. They don't want me either. How about you Pedro?

  6. This is great news for Democrats. Their vote ensures the continued decline of the GOP.

  9. Michael, not just their own head - but their children's heads.

    What are we gonna see? A whole lotta Republicans planning the funerals for their children when they could, and should, have been helping plan weddings.

    Republicans! They'd rather attend their kids' funerals than their kids' weddings to someone of the same sex. Take a good hard look at Rick Warren and realize his family's anguish will soon be yours.

  10. The GOP deserves all the criticism that it receives for its narrow-mindedness and anti-gay positions. However, you might might to re-check the facts in your headline that the vote was "unanimous". CNN reports that it was a "voice vote" and that "there was very little vocal opposition". That does not sound unanimous. The only reason this matters is because the few brave souls in the GOP who voted (by voice) against this resolution should not be ignored. For example, the GOP National Committeeman from Washington DC favors same-sex marriage, as do a small handful of others. Not enough to make a difference, but don't silence their voices.

    And yes, this probably cements the death of the GOP with many young people. Great news for the Democrats.

  11. Warren’s anguish ? hah, more like they are relieved that their gay son died.

  13. I was gonna say the same thing ant. Some of these fossils will be glad that their gay kids don't show up at reunions,etc.

  15. Despite all the clues the GOP has had, they still insist on committing political suicide. They deserve what they get. Perhaps the two party system will become a thing of the past.

  16. well, i wrote anguish but i actually agree with you two.

    look, Warren's son could have left some Big Old I"M GAY suicide note. it'd still get buried. and yes, it's ugly to say, but it's even uglier when you realize it's true: his son's suicide can be dismissed as "oh, it was just, you know, a lifelong struggle with depression that medication couldn't cure and in no way had ANY psychological or cultural factors contributing to it" rather than have an Out, or exposed, gay son whose life proves his father's Life Thesis to be bunk.

  17. Well, they could have been on the right side of history for once, but they decided not to. Enjoy your trip to obscurity, GOP!

  21. Good news for the Democrates & 2016. Hope it also helps the 2014 mid-term elections.

  22. Hey, Jimmy LaSalvia, GoProudGirlInChief, what say you of this latest "inclusive" effort of your GOP daddies? Hey, Jerry Katlin, LogCabinetteInChief, what say you of this latest "inclusive" effort of your GOP daddies?

    What's that? (Silence). Try the Democrats. They're inclusive and they want to make America a better place for all and not just for rich white people.

  23. Those of you who think the Republicans are damaging themselves by doing this--however repugnant their actions may be--are probably wrong, at least in the near term.

    Very, very few people who are not gay care passionately about gay rights--even those who are sympathetic are not going to base their votes primarily on a candidate's position on gay issues. For example, I recently overheard a couple of young (straight) men discussing this--one was from North Carolina and had voted in favor of gay marriage, but he also said in discussing it that he "didn't care that much"......and I suspect that is typical of our supporters.

    And much of the Democratic base consists of non-whites who are either apathetic about gay rights or hostile to they are not going to be energized to go to the polls because Republicans oppose gay marriage (a position that many of them agree with).

    The Republicans will probably take the Senate in '14 and retain control of the House, so I hardly think you can say they are on a trip to extinction or obscurity, either.

    I understand the emotions here, but we would do better to continue to work with those Republicans who are pushing for change (of which there are an increasing number) than we would to ghettoize ourselves completely in the Democratic Party. It was not too long ago that just about all Democrats opposed same-sex marriage, too, and they only changed because someone engaged them.

  24. Dems in 2016. Until the Repubs jettison the radical right haters, they will not have a sustainable political life. If 80% of young voters are pro-same-sex marriage, what does this say about the GOP?

  25. Adios didn't evolve with the times so by natural selection(the young vote)you will become extinct.
