Straight pundit without a clue department. How is it possible that Kevin Drum (The Washington Monthly) was completely CLUELESS that of the 11 gay marriage initiatives up for a vote in the national election, eight restricted civil unions as well? He must have had his head in the sand and never surfed the blogosphere.
CIVIL UNIONS….This column is a week old (I noticed it today via Andrew Tobias), but it’s worth linking to. Thomas Oliphant points out that of the 11 gay marriage initiatives on the ballot this month, only three of them were solely about gay marriage. If I’d been paying more attention, I would have known that. But I figure that if I didn’t know it, a lot of you probably didn’t either. Now you do.
Clearly, we’ve got to get the word out more to the hapless straight crowd that votes.
