Virginia Senate Republicans put their bigotry on full display

Today a majority of the Virginia Senate's Republicans--12 of 20 Senators--walked out rather than vote on whether to approve a well-qualified judicial candidate just because he happens to be gay. There you have it folks, Republican bigotry on full display. If there is a kind of bigotry, some petty hatred of a minority, then you can bet the Republican Party of Virginia indulges in it, tolerates it, or promotes it.

Here's the list of the 12 homophobic Republican Senators who showed their true colors today:

Dick Black
Bill Carrico
Tom Garrett
Emmett Hanger
Steve Martin
Jeff McWaters
Steve Newman
Mark Obenshain
Bryce Reaves
Ralph Smith
Bill Stanley
Richard Stuart

Ben Tribbett broke the story and has a lot more details at his site.
