    Oh, the language is very clear: “I don’t care if 100% of you voted for it. The opinion that counts is mine and therefore all your marriage equality legislation is dead, because that is what gay people deserve.”

    I do hope he brings it to the floor, so it has an opportunity to be defeated, just so he can not play the victim anymore.

    The inclusion of Chris Smith (even given his ultra-Catholicism) and Frank Wolf on this list is remarkable, in that both represent quite moderate districts.

    Fools that represent moderate districts yet sign on to this foolishness will get a fool’s reward.

    Well this explains the huge thud we felt even out here in Hawai’i. It was his amendment falling into obscurity. He will likely try to get a vote of some kind so he can “get people’s stands on the record,” a tactic that used to work on this issue, but that works no longer (for the right wing; though it might be informative for the left). Sadly (for him, anyway), this is the 21st Century, even as he’s convinced this is still the 1990s. Except for the laughter, and dozens of mentions on Faux News, I suspect this is the last we will hear of this travesty of legislation. And hopefully the last we will hear of this travesty of a legislator.

    Just a note Timothy, KA is no state in the USA.

    WHAT…? Michelle Bachman is not a signer or co-sponsor of this?

    I think his math may be a bit askew. It will take 3/4s of the states to ratify this little bit of evil, that means 37 states (actually 37.5 and I don’t know how it should be rounded, so for the sake of discussion, I’ve made it easier for the Christian hate machine).

    There are now 13 states with equal marriage, which means that ALL 37 (and possibly 38) will have to ratify. If one more state joins the equal marriage bandwagon (highly likely), passage will be impossible, not just next-to-impossible as it is now.

    Huelskamp is grandstanding for his crazy constituents.

    Tom: It takes 38 states.

    Joseph, this year is the 50th anniversary of zip codes. And, Timothy has not got them all straight, yet.

    Joseph, you are right. Fixed.

    Charles,

    I am no where near getting zip codes correct. I can usually recognize California and New York and that’s about it.

    Thanks for the fix Timothy. KA is a fraternity founded by ex-Confederate soldiers at Washington College (Now Washington and Lee) when Robert E. Lee was president of the college. One hundred and fifty years ago today Lee was busy fighting a little battle at Gettysburg.

    Yes Kappa Alpha is one of the oldest US college fraternities.

    It shouldn’t even get a vote on the House floor. Remember the Haestert Rule? This isn’t even close to a majority of the Repugs.
