Of course the yes side knows how painful it is. But think about how much easier THEY'LL sleep at night knowing that they kept YOU from ever sleeping easy again.

Looks like WA narrowly voted to keep the "Everything but marriage" civil partnerships. Probably not the last that we've heard on the matter, but it's a step. Interesting to read the comments (Caution, it's a conservative blog) here: like, "America is on the ''RIGHT'' step. American people are waking up to the fact that liberal are destroying America. Marriage is between a man and a woman who produce children. Gays produce aids. God Bless America" and "Great news out of Maine. The voters there showed real moral fiber and common sense. A pity the margin against queer "marriage" was not greater than 53-47, but a win is a win. Not so good out of WA, but at least it's not marriage. Americans are a tolerant (too tolerant IMO) people, and are willing to give "gays" something, but when it comes to actual marriage, fuhgeddaboutit."

ANdrea, I think they know how painful it is and they are happy for that. Just my opinion.

Still don't know in WA. THe "good" people of Maine apparently say "fuck you" to teh gays, but "give us our weed!". I also saw an article stating they were passing around collection plates in church to support the anti-same-sex-marriage ammendment, and that the court saws you can keep petition signers secret, but that only applies if it's an antigay petition.

65% of Kalamazoo, MI voters approved the Kalamazoo Non-Discrimination Ordinance, a margin greater than the remaining votes from the outstanding absentee ballots that are still being counted, adding protections for gay and transgender people to the city's non-discrimination ordinance.

We lost Question 1 in Maine. I wonder if the Yes side has any idea how painful this is.

We don't know for sure yet, but it looks like Ref71 is going to pass in Washington. :D

C'mon Maineiacs. Prove you're better than California!

Both votes still too close to call. WA balloting closes at 8pm, it's now 8:08. I hate that the web browsers show more interest in Kate Gosselin's pronouncements about her husband Jan and their litter, than the 2 votes regarding social justice.

Jeff,
It's close.... I hope that it passes! Also hoping that fairness triumphs in Maine.
