There went her chance to be VP nominee in the Republican Party.(That's the best she was going to do.)

After so disrespecting her fundie xstain base she'd probably have trouble getting into the Senate in the future.

tee hee.

Yes, that's why it took her three days to mull over, not five.

I give her credit as far as standing up to the dangerous Christian 'sharia bunch because "Born again" hypocrite Christian Mullah , Marco Rubio would have signed it of he could.

And now, before the little liar can get one of his many personalities to post on here, let me say: Spot on, Governor Brewer.

And that is almost certainly the only time I will ever use that annoying phrase.

I like your name but in reality I have greater respect for fundies who vote in state elections than SELF DEFEATING , politically apathetic Dems , Who ignore state elections and only vote once every 4 years (much of Miami's Gay community falls in that category).

Yup, them evilgelicals're driven and they do as their male overseers instruct.

Secularists of all kinds, particularly those who are not financially well off, tend to be a lot more slack about voting and cajoling legislators.

The states already decided when they joined the Union and agreed to uphold the US Constitution. The problem is, many of the states are filled with legislators too stupid to know that.

If you wish to leave your future to a state than go ahead. No one will stop you. Careful what you decide. It just may harm your future.

Her fundie base is dying...all the tea parties are recognizing that without the woman vote, the minority vote and the gay vote they will lose elections.

Allowing this decision to simmer was driving the bus off a cliff. This is piled on extremism by the Republicans, again. Demonstrating unstable behavioral swings and shows a complete disregard for the US Constitution.

I would rather leave my future to myself than leave it to a bunch of stupid legislators. I know I am in an extremely tiny minority believing that as the vast majority love to see their rights voted on. It is great when you win, but sometimes you lose.

Showing a "complete disregard for the US Constitution" is business as usual in today's government. Voting on the rights of others completely disregards the US Constitution.

.
California bar owner states anyone who doesn't openly accept or is critical of gays will not be served in his establishment.
but
Baker who does not want gays business are taken to court and ordered to serve gay customers.

Double standard much
