According to the Republican Party of America circa 2008, the biggest threat to America was a couple of nice gay people who live together and share all their expenses also being able to visit each other in the hospital, thanks to “gay marriage.” But now that New York State Republicans have approved Gay Marriage, the national GOP is suspiciously silent. Maybe they were all gay all along? Well yeah, but they are still supposed to be against any legislation that was fair to gays overall. Have Republicans all turned “Cuomosexual?”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo finally got to sign a hard-won bill to legalize teh ghey marriage over the weekend, which is good. So, have all of New York’s small children turned gay yet? This is what happens, we have heard during culture wars past, when gay people get married. Maybe not? Well, plenty of other terrible things are likely to happen, according to people like Newt Gingrich.
Here is what weird human failure Newt Gingrich said about it: “I think we are drifting toward a terrible muddle which I think is going to be very, very difficult and painful to work our way out of.” Haha, Newt, we are not talking about your campaign. But he is always our favorite person to check in with for hypocritical comments about marriage. And that is literally the worst thing we can find about this from any of the GOP presidential candidates, who are being suspiciously silent about all of this, probably because the law was passed by a Republican-controlled state senate.
Michele Bachmann initially forgot to check in with her other voices in her head and first said, during an interview on Fox News, that the states can legalize gay marriage if they want to, but then Other Michele #4 changed around and said we need one of those federal constitutional amendments to stop the gays from gaying all over the place or trying to eat Michele in restrooms.
And sad Manhattan cat lady Kathryn Jean Lopez is just depressed, so all she could muster was a useless post over at The Corner about how gay marriage would have failed if New Yorkers would have been allowed to vote on a referendum about it, which would be news to the 58% of New Yorkers who support gay marriage. WHATEVER, MATH IS STUPID. [NYTimes/ Reuters]
