Glued to CSPAN

December 18, 2010

I’d really like to go for a run, but I can’t stop watching CSPAN2. This is an epic, epic day. 

Some of my favorite quotes so far: 

“We fool ourselves when we say that gays and lesbians are not part of our social fabric, because we are all God’s children, and they are our sons and daughters.” – Senator Boxer

“I don’t care who you love. If you love this country enough to risk your life for it, you shouldn’t have to hide who you are.” – Senator Wyden (who showed up to vote yea on DADT despite prostate cancer)

“We ask troops to protect freedom around the globe. It is time to protect their basic freedoms and equal rights at home” – Senator Leahy

“So this is a basic question of integrity – are we going to continue to support a policy that asks people to lie?” Senator Casey

Note: it takes a truly sick Hill staffer to sit at home and watch CSPAN on the weekend. Don’t judge me. 😦
