Prop 8

I'm asshole enough not to care all that much about Prop 8, but (gimme credit!) honest enough to admit it. In the grand scheme of things I don't care if gay people marry, it's their business. Probably, all things considered, the world would be a better place if they could, as the discrimination against them injects poisonous distortions into the discourse, making progress in other areas difficult, and then you have the plain morality of it: why not? Who does it really hurt? No one. So I'm for allowing it, but not passionately so. I imagine that's probably where a lot of people are. But the dishonesty of ads like these made me get out the checkbook:

These fuckheads have got to be put in their place so we can get on with the business of fixing this country. Sorry, religious kooks, two people wanting to get married isn't what's wrong with this country. And you're going to lose, anyway, if not now then in 10 or 15 years when all the bigoted old bastards die off. Stop wasting everyone's time and energy on pointless garbage -- we have problems to solve. Real problems.
