Minnesota passes same-sex marriage

That makes three states (with Rhode Island and Delaware) in the past few weeks – the map will be getting bluer in July and August!

I was going to write something about how remarkable it was that just two years ago the Minnesota legislature passed a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage, although it was defeated at the polls 53-47% last year. But it turns out both the amendment and the same-sex marriage bill votes were largely along party lines – the difference is that the House and Senate went from being controlled by the Republicans to the Democrats in the 2012 election. So…yeah.
