Wow.

Rep. Senfronia Thompson (D-Houston) bitch-slaps the Texas legislature on the subject of gay marriage, discrimination, and other things. (Text of speech quoted in uniquewonders's LJ; pointed to by eliade)

I am just... in awe. She rocks. It's not that I think it will do any good, but damn, it's good that someone said it.

Yeah, I reposted that to a couple places ast night, it just kicked so much ass. You forget what it's like to have a politician just say full paragraphs of unvarnished truth.
