With as much anticipation that went into the NY Senate's vote on same-sex marriage (I don't know how many times I read that the Senate would be voting on marriage "this week" or "today" or "soon" in 2009), one would have thought it would have been closer. The LGBT side lost 24-38.
Lots of silliness will come of this, but my favorite so far is how the Log Cabin Republicans, after declaring that NY was where they'd make headway within the GOP, blamed it all on the Democrats. All 30 Republican state senators voted against the bill.
And then there's the opposite of silliness, which is Sen. Savino's speech. I'm impressed with the quality and caliber of the speech, and I can't imagine anyone approaching her in the Indiana Senate. It's after the jump.
