How Dare You!

Orrin Hatch is shocked, shocked that you would think him a bigot:

"The Republican leadership is asking us to spend time writing bigotry into the Constitution," said Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, which legalized gay marriage in 2003. "A vote for it is a vote against civil unions, against domestic partnership, against all other efforts for states to treat gays and lesbians fairly under the law."

In response, Hatch fumed: "Does he really want to suggest that over half of the United States Senate is a crew of bigots?"

Hmmm, let's see. You just voted approvingly for a measure that would not only declare a certain group of Americans second-class citizens, but approved one that would be permanently entrenched in the US Constitution unless repealed by another later amendment. In the shoe fits...
