    When it rains it pours...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Vermont legalized gay marriage on Tuesday after lawmakers overrode a veto from the governor by a wafer-thin margin, making the New England state the fourth in the United States where gays can wed.

    Like I said on the other thread, it's only a matter of time. Gay marriage opponents have lost.

    It's not fair! Everyone (Iowa, Vermont, the liberal down the street) is against ME! When is someone going to acknowledge MY feelings?

    Yeah, that's what I mean. They're all a part of the same liberal conspiracy. Makes me sick.

    Was it a party line veto?

    At least 2 republicans in the state senate voted for it. The house passed it 100-49, there are 49 republicans in the Vermont HoR and 93 democrates (plus 8 others) according to the google. I didn't fine anything about who voted each way, but I'd imagine that the opposition was mostly republican.

    I have no problem with this or Iowa. I prefer this over what happened in Iowa.
