    turnout.  Old people vote.

    I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate, perhaps that's what no one wants to see. -6.38, -4.15

      And it made no difference that our side spent a lot of time and money on ads featuring old people (Grandma loves her gay grandson!  W.W. II vet fought for his son's right to get hitched!).

      I'm hoping there'll be an ad this time around that actually features one or more gay couples.  We were utterly, totally and completely shut out of the discussion in '09, in terms of ads and marketing...except, of course, the right wing's demonization of us.  It's like people didn't even know who these mystery gay people were...so it was open season on us by the other side.  Big bunder, if you ask me.
