Stolen from Bring It On:
On Wednesday, March 1st, 2006, in Annapolis at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at American University, was requested to testify.
At the end of his testimony, Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs said: “Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?”
Raskin replied: "Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."
The room erupted into applause.
And then there's Molly Ivins. Finally, someone says it. For months now, in other blog comments, I've pointed out that Hilary's problem is, people hate her. No more sugarcoating. I hate her. Why isn't she for censure? If Blue Gal can grow some, so can she, except that it's all about her, innit? And it's too late now, honey.
