I'm happy to see that at least some of them have realized that fighting culture wars is a waste of taxpayers' time and money. Last time I checked, same-sex couples in loving and committed long term relationships weren't causing an economic crisis; shouldn't politicians focus their energy on bigger issues instead of trying to preserve archaic discrimination against this minority group?
It would be nice to see Republican legislators around the country (and on Capitol Hill) take note, but that's wishful thinking. Fanning the flames of anti-gay sentiment is an all to easy way to distract their constituents from the fact that they aren't doing anything to trim down government spending.
At least four in New York got it right.
