Pelosi: Republicans 'irresponsible' on same-sex marriage

(CNN) – Republicans who voted to spend millions in taxpayer dollars defending the federal ban on same-sex marriage are "irresponsible," the House Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi argued Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters after attending oral arguments at the Supreme Court on the legality of the Defense of Marriage Act, Pelosi said the decision by GOP leaders in the House to pay to defend DOMA in court was a violation of lawmakers' oaths to uphold the Constitution.

O'Reilly blasts same-sex marriage critics

(CNN) - Bill O'Reilly, the conservative Fox News host, believes same-sex marriage advocates have a more convincing argument than opponents, who do nothing but rehash scripture to make their point.

"The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals," O'Reilly said Tuesday on Fox. "That's where the compelling argument is. 'We're Americans. We just want to be treated like everybody else.' That's a compelling argument, and to deny that, you have got to have a very strong argument on the other side. The argument on the other side hasn't been able to do anything but thump the Bible."

Virginia gov. poll: Who are these guys?

Washington (CNN) – With a little more than seven months left until election day in Virginia, a new poll indicates the state’s voters know very little about either of the two major party candidates running for governor.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 63% of voters in the state don't know enough about Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe to form an opinion. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate, is slightly better known, but the survey indicates that 44% don't know enough about him to form an opinion.
