Representative Barney Frank today became the first sitting member of Congress to enter a same-sex marriage by marrying longtime partner Jim Ready in Newton, Mass. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick officiated at the ceremony.
About 300 attended the wedding, including quite a few political figures.
Initial Twitter reaction was overwhelming positive.
Those expecting a torrent of gay-bashing might have to settle for some light ribbing instead.
