    And frankly, Cooper left a big fat hanging curveball go over the plate.

    When Cooper brought up the discriminating against divorcees hypothetical and the Senator said "I can't imagine anyone discriminating against a divorced woman", Cooper should have said "Well I can't imagine anyone discriminating against a gay person, but that's what your law does".

    Cooper is right, there are plenty of fundies who hate divorce, who can under this law discriminate against all who are divorced.  Or widows who didn't marry their husband's brother, etc.

    •  Heck, hotels in Arizona (4+ / 0-)

      should require all couples renting a room to produce a copy of their marriage license along with ID if Brewer signs this mess; if they can't prove they're married then they have to pay for 2 rooms, at opposite ends of the establishment. Can't be facilitating fornication or adultery after all...
