Good news from Washington, D.C.

U.S. Senate Blocks Bid to Vote on Gay Marriage Ban


There were only 48 votes to cut off debate and continue on to a final roll call. 60 votes were needed.

During the debate, Rick Santorum, bless 'im, said, "It is not about hate. It is not about gay bashing. It is simply about doing the right thing for the basic glue that holds society together."


The six Republicans who crossed the aisle were McCain-AZ, Nighthorse Campbell-CO, Miller-GA, Snowe and Collins-ME, Nelson-NE, Sununu-NH, Chafee-RI. Good job, guys.

Update: Vote tally
