The Jeb stands alone

by Jeremy Hooper

   Of all of the House members from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire (22 in total), New Hampshire Republican Rep. Jeb Bradley was the only New England Congressman to vote in favor of the so-called "Marriage Protection Amendment."

Which means he will, of course, be promptly chased out of the area with pitchforks, torches, and chowda'.

Bradley says he believes in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and feels it's been threatened by court rulings, and that he thinks marriage should be between a man and a woman. Meanwhile, we wonder if he made a wrong turn somewhere around West Virginia.
