There is some sanity left in the world.

The US Senate has blocked a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. It doesn't mean same-sex marriage is ever likely to happen in America of course, at least not with the current lot in power, but at least it's one in the eye for old chimp-features. His plan to shore up the Deranged Right-wing Nutjob vote by attacking The Evil Gays would appear to have failed.

  3. Hurrah! I can’t help but feel it’ll only be a few days before hearing of some altogether new stupidity from the States, though. The fun just keeps on rolling in with Dubya in power. *sigh*
