Democratic Representative Barney Frank has wed his longtime partner, James Ready, becoming the first sitting US congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony on Sunday and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike…

Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat and a former chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, has been an openly gay congressman since the late 1980s.

In 2004, Massachusetts became the first state in the country where same-sex couples could be legally married…More than 18,000 same-sex couples have wed in Massachusetts since then.

Yes, some states in the Land of the Free allow more Freedom and Liberty than others.

    This is an extremely ugly picture, is it not?

    One guy said, “It is actually a same-gender marriage.  Words matter.”

    Then another came along & said the term is “same-sex marriage.”

    Problem here is, same-sex & marriage don’t go together.  Words matter, you say?

    There was an epic failure of imagination somewhere within the last 20 years when another term couldn’t be devised for “same-sex marriage.”  What a clunky concept that is.

    The Dutch figured it out though, didn’t they.  You go to a lawyer & get all the things you need.

    And Barney Frank?  No better argument for term limits.

    Another victory towards the ultimate goal of mandatory gay marriage or a federal penalty (tax).

    Looks like Barney will be getting now what he gave the mortgage industry for years

  5. Eh? says:

    Icky. New story please…

  6. President Amabo (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

    I thought same sex marriage was two women or two men not a man and a goat…

    Who cares!

    Just don’t try and tell me that homosexuality is normal or something. It’s about as normal as cancer is.

    And I don’t hate someone for having cancer either.

  8. Somebody says:

    Meh.

    He’s fucked everybody in the country.

    The marriage is somewhat anti-climactic.

    All I want to know is: Who’s Freddie & who’s Fannie?

  11. NewformatSux says:

    Marriage is the union of a man and a woman. So a same-sex marriage is an oxymoron.

  12. Guyver says:

    The tragedy here is how liberals / progressives have this obsession with celebrating their sexuality (as though it’s news-worthy)

    In the eyes of a liberal / progressive, being gay is important. It is important for them that others acknowledge their gayness and accept it.

    Look! It’s Beans and Frank.

    Had no idea dvorak.org attracted so many narrow right-wing trolls. Read the Constitution, dicks.

    There’s no rooster in that “relationship”!

  16. Billy Bob says:

    Frank will now be able to do in private what he did to the American public over the years.
