One out of every nine US citizens now lives in a state or district where they can legally wed a same-sex partner because the state Senate of New York just voted 33-29 for them to be able to do so.

That's 33 million people who now have equal civil rights.

33 State Senators, including Republicans, voted to give our rights to us when the President, IN NEW YORK LAST NIGHT for a GAY fundraiser, still opposes gay marriage.

You know, our Democratic President, the one whose own parents could not have married 50 years ago because interracial marriages were once illegal, the one who talks about hope and change, that guy?

The one who did NOTHING to help this happen tonight.

I cannot wait until his daughters grow up and ask him why he was a bigot back when gay marriages weren't just standard like they soon will be.

SHAMEFUL.

Maddow points out rightly, "President Obama is against what just happened."

Hooray New York!
