No marriage equality in NY. But hey, the legislature did earn national head shakes. That's something, right?

by Jeremy Hooper

Frustrated-statueSo who loses out in the aftermath of the New York Senate's monthlong circus/absurdist play/immature pissing match/offensive slight to the taxpayers who pay their salaries? Well the gays, natch.

Joe.My.God has the scoop:

As disappointing as it is to admit, it is clear that this week is not the right moment for same-sex marriage legislation."

Your thoughts

"this week is not the right moment for same-sex marriage legislation" and the next 52 weeks aren't looking good either.

This is one of the times when both parties looked like such putzes from their juvenile antics that I'm willing to bet many folks on both sides of the political spectrum would love to clean house of all these SOBs...

Agree. Completely bi/nonpartisan.

And although there are clearly many good eggs that don;t deserve the scorn, the offending lawmakers have put a long-lasting stain on the entire legislature. It's sad.

So, just like Washington, it comes down to:

Democrats in charge of EVERYTHING = "not the right moment for same-sex marriage legislation"

kthxbye

I definitely wasn't expecting it, unfortunately. Not after this mess. I feel like cleaning house, too.
