    If that's the way it is phrased on the ballot, you can count on the lowest of the low voting NO, thinking they're voting against same sex marriage Oh Noes Teh Gay Iz Stealing Our Marriage, while accidentally voting against repeal of the law allowing equal marriage rights.  Not all of them are that dumb, of course, but enough of them are that it could make the difference.

    Bigots are dumb, ugly, and contemptibly small, and with every advance in civilization, their ability to get by on their muscles and racial/gender/misc privilege diminishes. They hate gays and other formerly low caste groups because they know that they are inferior in their own character development, and are desperate to feel like they're better than somebody.

    Prejudice is the last gasp of the true bottom feeder.

    Still need to work hard on it, though. Unless they're willing to go next door to NH to help flip that US Senate seat, there isn't much else of interest in that area. New England is rapidly becoming a safe reality based, no Gooper need apply region.

    I can't think of Maine any more without thinking of Bill in (the other) Portland. Let's win this one for him, so that he and his partner may live safely and happily in the same warm companionship that hetero couples have taken for granted in all those years.
