New York Senate Democrats Manage to Send 0 Senators To Its Own Pride

Gay Rights March

Thanks to the circus that is New York’s State Senate — Democrats locking Republicans out of the chamber, guarding the gavel, trading barbs with Gov. David Paterson in the press — no state senators were on hand for a Hollywood & Broadway-themed pride celebration in New York City — sponsored by, uh, the New York State Senate Democrats.

While the event went on without its legislative sponsors, and Cleve Jones and Dustin Lance Black delivered their keynotes speeches, the entire evening was an example in brutal irony: At one Democratic event last night, we refuse to even attend with elected Dems; but at this one, we can’t even get elected Dems to attend with us.
