    And, only the Teabagger Republicans blinked...

    After all, what's there to defend ?
    Denying equal rights to one class of citizens ?
    Come on.

    Well that argument could have been made at anytime during the past 15 yrs but they found reason to defend it during that period.

    Fortunately, someone has realized how wrong it is.
