Sen. Claire McCaskill is the latest on Capitol Hill to announce support for same-sex marriage.
Mrs. McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, put on her Tumblr page on Sunday: “I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.”

Now that the election is over, that is.
Is this right absolute? Does it include your 9 year old cousin? A harem of 60? Or your horse?
how about a grandfather marrying his granddaughter?
Lindsey Olin Graham
We had our chance to get rid of this idiot, unfortunately the Huckabee wing of the party insisted on Akin - even when it was completely obvious he should step aside because he had no chance to win. The real Tea Party candidate, Sarah Steelman, would have almost certainly won this race.
We should wait until a situation like those you mentioned, comes up, and then see how it is dealt with.
With any kind of support, Akin might have won. Once the GOP elite wing cut him off and hung him out to dry, no replacement had a chance.
The voters of Missouri had a choice between an idiot and a lying criminal idiot. They chose the lying criminal idiot.
I trust all the Independents and Republicans who did not vote against her are happy.
Ultra poor quality video but it exposes the SSAD crowds preoccupation with sex and the fact they must recruit.
We have not fought hard enough against the SSAD cancer in society.
Oh thank you so much Tod Akin. There is a picture of you in the dictionary next to the word, “self-centered.”
wow! i am glad ALL OTHER problems have been solved
If you look at the marriage age in Missouri (14 with parents permission), can a 23 y/o male marry a 14 y/o boy, Clare?
If not, and a male can marry a female who is a teen, isn't that DISCRIMINATION??
Oh Gee.... let’s all evolve. What a f’n joke. Like there’s nothing more important going on right now.
Just when I thought I was all evolved, I found out I wasn’t.
Anyone who can't figure that out shouldn't be running for political office above the county level.
How are these folks gonna react when they come home to find some old queen trying to seduce their teenaged boys?
Someone like obammy??
The other side of it, and what I was arguing, was that the GOP handling of it doomed the seat as much or more than anything he did. To the misinformation voter, hearing that both sides don’t like the guy kills him.
We probably lost close senate seats in North Dakota and Montana as a result of Aikin and Murdouck's collateral damage.
I won't say it made a difference in the outcome at the top of the ticket but Florida, at least, was close enough to have swung the other way without these idiots taking the rape exception bait.
Thanks a lot Willard..
Your ugly big mouth didnt help the GOP for this seat...
“If you look at the marriage age in Missouri (14 with parents permission), can a 23 y/o male marry a 14 y/o boy, Clare?”
Is that really the law? I think that’s creepy even between a man and a girl.
I think it is 16 in Missouri, but in some states it is 14...(with parents permission)
