I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.
The Maryland House of Delegates returned the Marriage Equality bill back to committee today, presumably because they didn’t have the 71 votes that were needed to pass it.
The which narrowly passed the state senate and is supported by Governor Martin O’Malley is most likely dead for this year. Polls have shown that a slight majority of Maryland residents support full marriage equality for same sex couples.
