CO Senate Republicans split on gender lines

Colorado Independent:

Senate Republicans delivered Pat Steadman’s same-sex civil unions bill to the Republican-controlled House Thursday with momentum and a message. Although the twelve Republican men in the Senate voted against it, the three Republican women in the Senate voted in favor of the bill, making the case to leaders of the Republican-controlled House to take up the bill with good faith and allow it to move beyond committees and onto the floor of the House for a vote.

Is anyone besides me starting to notice a trend?

Yes, unlike their men, Republican women, with some exeptions, actually have a functioning brain and are able to recognize what was done to them.

The fact that Republucan men are here to perpetuate their self entitled life styles surely does not surprise anyone.

They’re still civil unions. Bring up marriage and those women would be marching with the men.

It just shows they have a little bit more of a semblance of conscience than do their callous male peers. But only just a little bit.
