FMA Killed In the Senate
So, after all the sound and fury the GOP kicked up by picking on gays, they couldn’t even get a simple majority in the Senate to support the odious Federal Marriage Amendment (you know, the one that would have put a ban on gay marriage into the Constitution). In other words, not even half the Senators voted to support the FMA. So it’s dead.
You know, if you’re going to try to flex your political muscles by beating up on a minority group, it really helps if you’re actually powerful enough to actually pull it off. Otherwise you just come off looking intolerant and impotent. Way to go, Senator Santorum!

Mentioning “Santorum” in a public place where kids can see it is an FCC decency violation.
