STUPID REDSTATE BIGOTS! Oh, wait: Hawaii Kills Same-Sex Unions. “Hawaii lawmakers declined to vote Friday on a bill that would have allowed same-sex civil unions, effectively killing the measure. The state House of Representatives decided to indefinitely postpone a decision on whether to grant gay and lesbian couples the same rights and benefits the state provides to married couples.”

UPDATE: A reader emails: “You might want to note that Hawaii is a one-party state; the state house of reps is 45-6 Democrat-Republican and the state senate is 23-2. Yes, your family has more members eating together at a breakfast than the Hawaii senate minority.”

I’m somewhat surprised to see that neither Andrew Sullivan nor his “underbloggers” have mentioned this yet.
