When it came time for the couple’s traditional first dance, Joe read prepared remarks explaining that instead of dancing together, they wanted to open the dance floor to their gay and lesbian friends who are still legally denied the right to marry.
This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn’t even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage.

Change is coming.

These are the best GOP rape quotes I could find - but message me if you have more! Let’s hold these people accountable.
1.Todd Akin: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down” -mid 2012 Senate Campaign
2.Claytie Williams: “If it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it” -mid 1990 Gubernatorial race in Texas
3. Chuck Winder: “I would hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape. I assume that’s part of the counseling that goes on.” -March 2012
4. Ken Buck: “A jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer’s remorse … It appears to me … you invited him over… the appearance is of consent.” -October 2010
5. Rick Santorum: “I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you… rape victims should make the best of a bad situation.” - January, 2012
When I was in 5th grade, I was in a Pokemon card game bracket-based tournament being held at the local video game store. I lost in the second round and my parents had to buy me a Charizard to stop me from loudly weeping.
Yes… this is our company car.
I want this. Now.
