As you have no doubt heard by now, this morning Vermont’s legislature broke new ground by overriding the Governor’s veto on same-sex marriage legislation. Not only did this move allow Vermont to enter the hallowed ranks of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa as those states in the union that recognize same-sex marriage, it was the first of them to do so by affirmative act of the legislature as opposed to court compulsion.
In the comments, we Harpies would like to hear your loudest, proudest and foulest calls for your home states to take the same initiative. (I’d lead off the call, but as we know, I am a foreigner whose superior home country was among the first to recognize same-sex marriage waaaaaaaay back in 2003.)
