I received this headline today from Democrats.com:
CALIFORNIA MARRIAGES SPARK RIGHT-WING BACKLASH
Has anyone noticed this socially divisive issue always comes to the forefront during a presidential election year? When Massachusetts made similar headlines in 2004, the backlash helped to defeat John Kerry. Maybe Kerry would have won Ohio if the conservative voters there weren't all fired up over this specific issue. (and did they ever count the votes fairly and squarely, but that's another whole subject). Now in 2008 the right-wing again has fodder to fuel their religious activists, who otherwise are less than enthused with this year's Republican nominee.
