    Those who are AGAINST it have been pumped up for years; those who are FOR it were playing a sort of defeated defense. Now they are absolutely on fire. This has blindsided everyone how it blew up. Even the established LGBT groups who said they were looking at a longer time frame were taken off guard. It's a grassroots thing that grew from three people to thousands almost overnight.

    The issue I think us frightened little mice don't look at is that the hard, moral-values right pretty much 100% votes all the time. There is not a new voter pool here. They're already going to be out on Personhood if they get it on the ballot. Issues like this appeal to groups — especially younger voters — who can be very disengaged. (as will Personhood). I think it's only going to help.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.

    •  I'd love to be wrong. Where's the proof (0+ / 0-)

      that many of those outside the gay community feel as strongly as those inside of it about this issue? There's a big difference supporting it and having it be a near and dear issue for someone.
