Bleeding Heartland: Why marriage equality is here to stay

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The short of it is because Republicans have ZERO chance of taking back
the Senate anytime soon. I've felt since the ruling that it probably
would never get overturned. I got curious today and decided to
investigate further. So I started to think like a social conservative
(it was scary) and tried to find any feasible way for this to pass the
Lege in the near future. It will not pass in the 2010 session
according to both the House and Senate leadership. So the Repubs best
hope is for a successful election in 2010 to make it possible. It is
in the realm of possibility that Repubs take back the House. I really
don't think they will, but there are a lot of competitive races that
could flip in a good year for them. I could even see an amendment
passing that chamber in the next couple sessions with "six-pack" help.
