Feingold: Fine with fine gold being swapped by two dudes/chicks

by Jeremy Hooper

   Russ Feingold (pic.), U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, yesterday releasesd a statement publicly announcing his support for marriage equality. On the proposed marriage ban in his home state:

The proposed ban on civil unions and marriage is a mean-spirited attempt to divide Wisconsin and I indicated that it should be defeated,” Feingold said. “It discriminates against thousands of people in our communities – our co-workers, our neighbors, our friends, and our family members. It would single out members of a particular group and forever deny them rights and protections granted to all other Wisconsin citizens. It would also outlaw civil unions and jeopardize many legal protections for all unmarried couples, whether of the same or the opposite sex. We shouldn’t enshrine this prejudice in our state’s Constitution.

Comments to which we feel the need to respond: Hillary? Really? We sure about that, Dems? Because, ya know, there's still plenty of time for another candidate to be foisted upon us...
