WASHINGTON -- President Obama's belated if unequivocal support for gay marriges puts him on the same side as all six congressional Democrats from Washington state.

The sixth Democrat, Rep. Norm Dicks of Bremerton, voted for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)that defined marriage as between a woman and a man. Since then, he has strongly backed gay-rights issues, including voting against an amendment last year that would have barred military chaplains from marrying same-sex couples.

Still will never top the all-time greatest headline about the upcoming game between Arkansas and South Carolina:

“Nutt Replaces Dick with Johnson Against Cocks.”

My favorite congressional committee of all time was the 1996 committee tasked with investigating Chinese military advancement. Headed by Chris Cox and Norm Dix, the Cox & Dicks Report ROCKED!!!

There was a good one in The Michigan Daily when Gary Peters lost the Michigan Attorney General election to Michael Cox.

Headline: “Cox inches out Peters”

“Unfortunate” headline?

Heck, I bet the writer’s pool drew straws to see who would have the privilege of working with *this* material!

Good thing Normie was present or the headline would be ‘Democrats favor repeal of gay-marriage ban with Dicks out.’

Reminds me of the city bus I once saw in San Francisco. The placard said it was going to Castro and the sign on the bus said “Enter in the Rear”.
