This was a pleasant surprise wasn't it? I had no idea that was even on the agenda for Iowa.

So, now, how bad is your rightwing and religious zealot situation? WIll there now be a cornfed version of Prop 8?

Bubs - Iowa has it's share, no doubt. It will be interesting to watch the resulting protests.

Yea! I was so excited when I heard it. I have a bunch of friends who worked tirelessly on this. It's nice to see the good guys winning for once. Now, let's all sit back and watch what happens with the backlash.
