Maryland GOP’s Solution for Recognizing Out-of-State Marriages? Ban ‘Em

Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler’s opinion that law requires Maryland to recognize out-of-state gay marriages, despite Maryland banning them in its own state, has met its match: House Minority Leader Anthony O’Donnell has a bill that would ban you fags in D.C. and Connecticut from trying to get Maryland’s state agencies, and state tax code, to lend you the M-word. But hey, at least it’s a more reasonable solution than County Del. Don Dwyer trying to get Gansler impeached.

    There’s one beautiful word in this phrase: “House Minority Leader Anthony O’Donnell”.

    There is “minority” and then there is “minor minority” just like there is “majority” and “super majority”.

    In Maryland (I googled this), Minority is a very very beautiful word indeed. In the Maryland House, there are 104 Democrats v. 36 Republicans and 1 Independent while in the Maryland Senate, there are 33 Democrats v. 14 Republicans.

    Thus, in Maryland, the Democrats have super-duper majorities in both houses leaving the Republicans way out numbered (74% control in the House; 70% control in the Senate).

    No rest here though. Teabagging wingnuts succeeded in disrupting Health Care Reform inspite of the Democrats’ majorities in Congress. Even super-duper majorities MUST be prepared to dispatch these asshats. In Massachusetts, where the Democrats have super-super-duper majorities, it was very close for the Democrats to prevent the Republicans from getting a public vote on whether people deserve their civil rights.
