|Did the Republicans inadverently drive the push for Gay Marriage in Minnesota?

|This is good, but I want another present for the American People
This morning's (surprise to me) ruling on Obamacare is a welcome present for the American People and the rule of law I have my eyes on a bigger prize though - for although today we have won a fight,
|the purpose of broadcasting is....
as a junior in college, and a broadcasting major, I read this sentence and it knocked me off my feet - so obvious, and so apparently forgotten to Rush Limbaugh - it can be a harsh and brutal lesson ...
