I was all ready to post a real post today but... my goodness. Wendy Davis! SB5 goes down! Texas GOP thinks the rules don't apply to them! SCOTUS! DOMA! And this:

I will be honest, I'm a conservative. Fiscal conservative. Small government conservative. Maybe even a Republican. But the Republican party of old Christian men who want to legislate their religious views into civil law do not speak for me. They do not, as they claim, have a monopoly on what is "right." These laws that invade our bodies and our bedrooms are unacceptable.
I want to look back on today and see this as the day that the party of anti-woman, anti-love, and pro-bigotry imploded, and risen from the ashes was a Republican party that I would actually vote for. That sound you hear, it's the tides turning.
