AmBUSHed!

Ha! Ha!

Take THAT! Republicans with agendas...

...and to think THEY say that there is a 'Gay Agenda'. Unreal. My only agenda is to not feel like a second class citizen and to have the same rights as the rest of this "Free" (bullshit) country of ours.

Here's the result:

Gay Marriage Ban Defeated In Senate

Washington D.C. (AHN) - A constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage was defeated in the Senate Wednesday.

However, supporters said that several new votes for the measure represent progress, which gives the GOP's base reason to vote on Election Day.
Associated Press reports supporters failed to get the 60 votes required for the measure to survive a test vote.

Had it survived, a two-thirds majority in both houses of Congress would have been required to send an amendment to the states. It then would have had to be ratified by at least 38 state legislatures.

Those who supported a ban on gay marriage took comfort in the fact that the idea received several new votes from Republican newcomers elected after the amendment received its last vote in 2004.


Well, bully for them. Pricks.
