More breaking news: Bad news this time, gay marriage passes the House

Update (later on the 19th):  Look how the Juicer is treating the Montgomery County Democrat who voted against gay marriage, here.  And, I thought the Dems were supposed to be the kind people and we are the mean people.   Whew!

Update February 19th:  Monoblogue has a good post on how gay marriage fits into O’Malley’s political aspirations,here.

Update:  The two Republicans who pushed the bill over the finish line for O’Malley were Delegates Robert Costa and Wade Kach, here.

The Maryland House of Delegates tonight passed Gov. O’Malley’s gay marriage bill — I am hearing 71-67.  There is a short story here at the Baltimore Sun.  Will post more when we find out which Republicans voted for it.

Earlier this evening, if you missed it, we had the good news that CASA de Maryland lost its court case on the Dream Act. here.

VP Dick Cheney, if this is true, I will never admire you again! 

Here is something I didn’t know, hat tip: Doug.   Former VP Dick Cheney was calling Maryland Republican delegates to ask them to SUPPORT gay marriage.

I would have expected it from the others who called!  From the Baltimore Sun yesterday.

As a handful of undecided Maryland delegates wrestle over their position on same-sex marriage, they’ve received calls from national leaders trying to move them one way or another on the bill.

Prominent figures dialing Maryland area codes include New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman and Cardinal-elect Edwin F. O’Brien — who called from Rome — according to delegates who’ve received messages from them and sources familiar with the calls.

  1. The gay “marriage” insanity was expected. No surprise. This is the O’Malley bubble on steroids. This is Maryland, after all. Like a coiled spring, we will strike back with great power when the petition drive begins. Voters will be energized in November. It is our chance to be a part of history. This is the moment when the waters of socialism and insanity began to recede, and the light of truth started to break through.
    Hint: don’t look to the newspapers to inform you about this change of paradigm. We are in the end times for sure when the concept of homosexuality becomes enshrined by our political leaders with the mantle of “marriage”

    The cause of this nonsense is the great increase of single parent homes, with boy children growing up to identify more with the powerful figure of “mother” You can also look to the so-called “women’s liberation’ movement as a symptom of the problem. Woman are no different than men. That’s the concept that begins to delude those confused in their sexuality to actually think of this behavior as “normal”

    It really confirms what many o f us have known for years — that the great majority of political leaders in Annapolis are just totally disconnected from reality.

  2. To Lee et al:

    AMEN TO THE 1000TH POWER.
    THIS IS A SAD DAY, INDEED, FOR MARYLAND. TOO MANY MARYLAND ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES (I REFUSE TO CALL THEM ‘LEADERS’) HAVE SICK SOULS – IF THEY EVEN HAVE A SOUL TO BEGIN WITH.

  3. Dick Cheney and George Bush are not conservatives. Never were, never will be.
