Cali legislature fails to legalize gay marriage, Cruise/Holmes fail to convince America

by Jeremy Hooper

    In its third and final attempt, a bill that would have legalized gay marriage in California failed to receive the majority vote needed for Assembly passage. Had the measure captured only four more 'ayes', the California legislature would have been the first to voluntarily grant marriage rights to homo-gay couples.

Oh so close.

In a related story, it seems that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' California partnership has failed to receive the majority approval needed to qualify as "successful publicity stunt." Had the partnership captured only a few more 'seems plausibles,' we hear that the Hollywood couple would have been the 678,326,854 to publicly shack for the sake of their careers.

Oh so Oprah.
