Alright, so Jan Brewer vetoed the bill.

Well, holy heck and hoo-ray.  But, do not think for a minute that this tortuous decision of hers had anything to do with 'doing the right thing'.

She did it to save face for her neanderthal knuckle headed asshat representative body that passed the god-awful legislation in the first place, and because Arizona might have lost the Super Bowl! (She really did it for the latter reason.) Watch the Jon Stewart video from last night.  None of these 'public servants' ever once even hinted that the bill was wrong.  Nope, the bill was misunderstood, or misinterpreted, or could backfire on Christians, or was just plain bad for a healthy bidness climate.  Because that is all they really frickin care about.

So, I am not throwing no parades for Ms Brewer.  Especially since there are still other states out there with similar legislation in the pipeline.  And those states do not have a Super Bowl Sword of Damocles hanging over their heads.


Meanwhile, this happened yesterday, too.  We are going to win on this eventually.  It is just going to take time.  And, honestly, I think we are going faster than I ever thought we would.

And, this is great, as well:  Senate candidate from Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes, had this to say about her opponent, "And I think what people – not just Kentucky, but the nation – are seeing is that Mitch McConnell, kind of like heating a biscuit twice, never tastes good the second time, no matter how much jam or jelly you put on it. That’s my grandmother’s saying, by the way… "
