'I swear to uphold the non-bulsh*tty parts of the constitution'

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 9-25City officials in Madison, WI, are considering a plan that would allow elected officials to officially protest the state's recently-passed gay marriage ban as part of their oath of office. Thus allowing those who conduct the swearing in to finally use the line:

"Please place your right hand on the Bible, and with your left -- give inequality your middle finger!"

That'll make inaugurations SO much more interesting!

According to the AP, those opting to sign the pledge would "vow to fight to overturn the amendment and to minimize its impact." Not to be out-liberalled, we hear rumors that San Francisco will soon initiate an identical program, except theirs will also demand that "Abraham, Martin, & John" be played while the oath is being taken.
