I Say, Let Them Be As Miserable As The Rest Of Us

Gays, that is. If they think being married is so special, I've got some land I'd like to sell them along the Mississippi. I mean, as far as I'm concerned everyone has the right to be stupid and miserable and married. But it seems a group of Republicans don't agree.

This week they re-introduced the Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution which essentially says that marriage is between a man and a woman, which essentially excludes marriage between those who pee the same way, which essentially means by prohibiting gays from marrying, Republicans are actually promoting premarital sex.

But that's not the odd thing.

Supporters of the bill include Senators David Vitter (R-LA) and Larry Craig (R-Idaho). Remember them? Vitter hired prostitutes and Craig was caught soliciting gay sex in an airport. Not actually poster boys for the sanctity of marriage between two people who pee differently.

I mean, this kind of stuff is why I Prefer My Fantasy Life folks. And why I prefer those Humor Blogs.

Perhaps Craig will explain his motives in his upcoming book.

I already have it in my queue..right behind the Richard Simmons autobiography.

Great post, but I feel you didn't use enough exclamation points! ; )

Let'em get married, I say.

here, in the fine state of massachusetts, we've been letting gay dudes and dudettes get hitched for a while. everything has gone to hell: the republicans are STILL getting busted for child porn.

jesus, the more people i can have to gripe about the ball and chain the better.

plus, it's not like there's a WAR going on or anything.

Seriously...only something else for the politicians to bitch about.

I say anyone who wants to marry, should be able. And they can call me..I can start a wedding planner business.


Honeybell said...

I know this has been done to death, but really; the only people who care if gay people get married seem to be uptight Republican white guys. Come out of the closet already.

Jen said...

Wouldn't gay marriages be good for the economy with all the wedding purchases? And yes, that is pretty hypocritical of those Senators to support this bill. Idiots!

Jen said...

Oh and just wanted to thank you for the Ruffalo movie recommendations. I'm adding them to my Netflix queue and will let you know what I think.

Jerry Thomas said...

Senator Craig has a wide stance and a narrow mind.

There. You see how I made a joke there, playing on the concepts of "wide" and "narrow"? It's a humorous remark, and it makes a fine point about the state of politics. Thus I make my argument for the relevance of this comment.

Alex L said...

Yeah its the same in Australia, Gays want the chance to lose half their stuff in the divorce like all the rest of us... Now thats being cynical!

Let em get married, hell let them marry their cars if they want to, I dont see the problem.

Arpeggio Andy said...

I think senator craig is concerned that if gay people marry, then they won't be available in bathroom stalls.

I wonder sometimes why everything is so crooked.

Tisk Tisk.

I think the title of your post says it all!

Thanks for stopping by my site. It's nice to meet you :)

There are laws that need to evolve with humanity and/or changed/discarded.

Did you know that here in Illinois my hsuband can call me his property??


When we all know I could trade him for a pack of Marlboros like that! [snapping fingers]

Just kidding, I don't smoke.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Everyone who's an adult should be able to marry the spouse of their choice. And yeah, Craig has got to be the weirdest sponsor of that bill.

Bex said...

I'm married and (sometimes) vote Republican. And I totally agree - adults should be able to marry. Period. If we are going to challenge peoples rights to marry I say let's start with uptight white dudes and politicians in particular. If I see one more "supportive wife" holding her husbands hand while they stroll into a press conference so that he can explain to the world why he's been bumping dirties with the intern, the gay chauffeur or the prostitute I think I might just go off the deep end.

The religious right really chaps my ass. What a bunch of hypocritical dingleberrys.

Nice blog, by the way!

Audubon Ron said...

I'm gonna have to think about this one, and, I'm not equiped for that activity.

jt said...

LOL! Leave it the boys who get caught to try and amend how everyone else should control their lives. Hypocrisy at it's best. And I agree with Honeybell, they that object so much, are.

Jake Titus said...

Wow, looking at Vitter's quote raised a question in my mind.

"If my wife knew gays were marrying, she'd divorce me in a minute."

Sounds to me like she would consider a woman over a sleazeball like him. Hmmmmm, are you a little bit afraid Vitter?

Sully Sullivan said...

Republicans being hypocritical? Nah that doesn't sound right.

Anyone should be allowed to get married. Why is the United States still so closely tied to Christianity. It's over guys...wake up. God doesn't exist (at least not in the ridiculous sense that Christianity purports) and Jesus sucked. He existed, and he sucked. Christianity just did a hell of a job of selling him the good old Hollywood way. Big explosions, diluted and nonsensical plot lines, smoke and mirrors.

Gay people should be allowed to get married. End of story.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

I love any logic that can therefore conclude "Republicans are actually promoting premarital sex." Well done.

Oh yeah-- we do have patients that tend to diagnosis themselves-- and sometimes they are correct!

Why? Because doctors = morons in white coats. hah


good luck with your doctor hehe.

Thanks for the laugh. Sometimes laughter is all we have--as Sullivan discovers in the movie Sullivan Travels.
