More Reasons to Pity the People of Louisiana

by Jackrabbit Slim
We debated the gay marriage issue ad nauseum in the Hollywood Elsewhere forums, but I had just had to point out the moronic statement made by Louisiana's Republican Senator, David Vitter:

"I don't believe there's any issue that's more important than this one."

He was speaking of the anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment. Seriously.

This is a man who represents a state that is still reeling from a devastating hurricane. I hope the people of New Orleans who are still suffering from the effects of that storm are comforted by the fact that they have a senator who is working hard to make sure that there are no same-sex marriages.

I guess Karl Rove has advised him and other Republican senators that making such statements is the only way to get re-elected?

The amendment was defeated in today's vote. I applaud all those Senators, particularly the Republicans, who voted against it.

Well, the hurricane came because of gay marriage, right? So I can see how it is a pretty important issue for Louisiana.

Unless you are one of those godless hippies who believe that the last couple of years' insane hurricane seasons were caused by increased temperatures in the world's oceans.
