Honestly of the Week: 1-9-10

It’s back for the new year…

On Thursday, the New Jersey State Senate, that august body of my current state of residence, convened to vote on whether to allow gay marriage in the Garden State.   Outgoing Governor John Corzine had dangled the carrot in front of social liberals by saying he would sign such a bill into law if it came to his desk before his term expired.  Sponsors and supporters of the bill hurried along, knowing that future cardiac patient and Governor Chris Christie would sooner sign a bill outlawing mayonnaise and fudge before he would approve gay marriage.

The measure was defeated by a vote of 20 – 14.  Those against gay marriage recanted their usual talking points about how the sanctity of traditional marriage and the stability of the American family had been preserved.

Days before the vote, ABC’s newest edition of The Bachelor, a game show in which two dozen harlots degrade themselves by participating in a series of competitions to win the affections–and ultimately the proposal–of a man they have known for little more than two weeks, debuted to stellar ratings.  It was watched by 9.1 million people, making it the most watched major network program for that night, second only to the Fiesta Bowl.

Honestly, New Jersey State Senate.  Honestly…
