  5. Yay! I love my senator :) And while yesterday’s defeat in New York is extremely disappointing, the way this video has spread in the past 24-hours gives me hope.

  6. err,

    i hate to sound like a jerk, but talk is cheap.
    you can’t change the minds of people who live under a blanket with their eyes closed and their thumbs in their ears, screaming “la la la la la la la la la…”

    • But she didn’t vote against it. So you’re saying it’s not worth even talking about??? Since when is something that you feel strongly about not worth talking about?

      • err,

        nah man, that’s not what i meant.

        i dunno, apparently this is where my defeatism and my indecisiveness cross paths.

  9. Wow. Initially I looked at the length of the video, saw it was about gay rights and thought “ugh, this is going to be 7 minutes of stuff I’ve already heard before”. And it kind of was, but it wasn’t stuff I expected to hear from a senator. Truly an excellent speech.

  10. Mike K,

    That speech was as good as Keith Olbermann’s monologue on the same subject ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIIcaDDyd_I ), which, incidentally, I saw only because it was linked her on Cynical-C.

    And this senator really connects with the audience – when it comes to delivering speeches, she and Obama would make a powerhouse team.

  11. Politico,

    Amazing speech! Diane is my senator and I have been supporting her for a long time based on her effective speeches and my agreeance with her on every issue.
