Somehow or another I managed to miss last week's House vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment. After a bit of Googling, I came across Congress.org, which includes detailed role calls of House and Senate votes. (The role call list is absurdly hard to navigate, since I couldn't find a search box, but I was able to find links on another site.)

The amendment failed in the Senate 48-50 on 14 July 2004. Colorado's senators (both Republican) were evenly split. The amendment failed in the House 227-186 (short of the 2/3 majority required) on 30 September 2004. The representative from my lefter-than-left district (Mark Udall) voted nay, but most of Colorado's representatives voted yea, including righter-than-right Marilyn Musgrave who introduced the bill in question... who represents most of Longmont, where I won't move soon enough to vote nay for Colorado's very own fascist bigot.

When aiming for the lowest common denominator,
be prepared for the occasional division by
zero.
