While we were away: Chris crossed his CTs and Dodded his 'I dos'
On June 21, U.S. Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) revealed that he has become the latest prominent Dem to locate the fairness-supporting spine that he and his colleagues failed to utilize during the aggressively rights-hostile Bush years. Dodd said, in part:
I believe that, when my daughters grow up, barriers to marriage equality for same-sex couples will seem as archaic, and as unfair, as the laws we once had against inter-racial marriage.
And I want them to know that, even if he was a little late, their dad came down on the right side of history.
Rights, Responsibilities and Love [Chris Dodd]
So D-CT now holds a view of equality that is less D-odd and more D-even. A nice development, fo' sho'.
Now we just hope the gentleman from the Constitution State will ask his fellow rights-reluctant lawmakers to pick up their own irresponsibly dragging feet and to step over to our green-grassed side of the historical fence. It is the only acceptable destination (even for those who R-taking the slower road on the back of an elephant).
