Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) just became the third Senate Republican to come out in favor of marriage equality. That makes 54 senators who aren’t going to be an embarrassment to their grandchildren (not for this, anyway).
Though in Murkowski’s case, it was probably the ol’ Biden sweet talk that did the trick.

You know, I’m, I guess, of a generation that I don’t — I wonder — I listened to some of the Supreme Court justices and one of them said, ‘Well what’s next after that? Is it two people, three people?’

Don Rumsfeld, suggesting gay marriage has weapons of mass polygamy. 

Good thing you can’t invade gay marriage.

Yesterday Rhode Island became the tenth state to legalize marriage equality. Yay, Rhode Island!
Lots of people were surprised when they noticed that every single Republican in the RI state senate — all 5 of ‘em — voted in favor of the bill. This is shocking because it means gay rights are gaining within the GOP there are still Republicans in Rhode Island.

Congratulations, New Zealand, being “like Scotland, but far away” is no longer your number-one claim to fame.
After a 77 to 44 vote in parliament, New Zealand became the first country in the Asia-Pacific region and the 13th in the world to legalize same-sex marriage.
Among the parliamentarians voting in favor of a equality was Prime Minister John Key, who happens to be a conservative, but also just wants Frodo and Samwise to be happy.

Tuesday’s Links: War Games

* A compromise for Justice Scalia.

* Unless you’re playing cards, war isn’t a game.

* Put this in your baby scrapbook, space nerds!

* Think your privacy is violated now? Just you wait.

* Invest in this U.S. export and you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.

* Re-enacting a Sex Pistols interview as Amish folk is exactly as hilarious as it sounds.

* Sure, you see them on the internet all the time, but what is the science behind them?

I would not be surprised that at the time when we are debating same-sex marriage, at a time when we’re debating whether or not we should have gays leading the Boy Scout movement, I don’t think it’s just a coincidence that we have a mad man in Asia who is saying some of the things that he’s saying.

Fred Luter, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, explaining that gay people are responsible for Kim Jong-un’s anti-American rants.

Destroying civilization, launching hurricanes, creating East Asian dictators: Looks like gays are capable of EVERYTHING except keeping people from saying dumb, bigoted things about them.
