Well, Maybe Not.

New York State Senate Republicans staged a coup and took over the Senate.  Democrats briefly had control of the state senate for the first time in 40 years by a one seat majority.  That evaporated when 2 Democratic senators, one from the Bronx (NOT Ruben Diaz) and another from Queens, defected to the Republican side.  However, they did not change their party affiliation, the Democrats refuse to recognize the move, and the whole thing will likely end up in court.

So, it looks like no gay marriage bill this year.

New York ranks right up there with Texas and California when it comes to dysfunctional state government.  Mercy!

Doesn't this seem little desperate?

Also thinking of Ms Palins latest idea (she didn't think that out on her own, as usual) that President Obama is leading towards Socialism...

And Mr Murdoch's idea that President Obama is "dangerous"...

Maybe precisely because he isn't ;=)

And Louisiana. I've heard about the shenanigans in Albany.

I'm very sorry about that the bill didn't pass.

I thought it was too good to be true.
