Even 2 years ago we may have been looking at a different roll-call. Things are changing so rapidly, and I’m so happy about it. NOM no longer looks like a religious organization. More and more they are looking like a bunch of bigoted idiots, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks so.

It seems like EX governors and EX presidents and EX Senators… always seem to find their moral compass, and testicles/ovaries AFTER they are no longer in a position to make their opinion count.

Obama will miraculously and mysteriously finish his evolution toward supporting marriage equality within months of leaving office.
