Thanks to all the fair-minded folks who might not be comfortable around people like Charles and me, but who are even less comfortable amending the United States Constitution specifically to exclude us from equal rights.
The vote was 50-48 our way – and would have been 57-43 or 58-42 had it been an actual vote on the amendment. Instead, it was a procedural maneuver designed as a stop-loss measure by the Republican leadership. (Even then, it failed to stop their loss.)
This must have distressed President Bush and the 88% of the Republican Senators who voted against us. But what was meant to be a wedge issue to divide Democrats just might wind up wedging Republicans worse. For starters, Lynn and Mary Cheney both came out as disagreeing with their husband/father’s support of the amendment. And women generally have better sense than men.
OH, THAT EXPLAINS IT
Andy Borowitz’s latest scoop:
LAY: ENRON COLLAPSED WHILE I WAS AT LUNCH
Embattled former Enron CEO Kenneth Lay adopted a bold new legal strategy today, telling CNN that he had no part in Enron’s spectacular collapse because it happened “while I was at lunch.”
Speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Mr. Lay said that he wished he could have done something to prevent the energy giant’s demise, “but I was out of the office at the time.”
When Mr. Lay returned from lunch, he told Mr. Blitzer, “Enron was gone.”
