    Actually that commercial is rather weak. At least the Yes on 8 commercials really laid the bullshit on thick. After watching two commercials, I still don’t know what I’m supposed to be calling the senators for since there is no same sex marriage bill.

    I thought domestic partnerships and civil unions were supposed to be the “compromise”. It appears that the compromise doesn’t seem to hold any water for the religious right. No one is calling it marriage and it still isn’t the same as marriage since no federal benefits apply.

    You can bet that the rightwing will mount a spirited effort to put this to a referendum vote. They are already galvanized to do so. Washington has some of the most active, zealous, and organized anti-gay forces in the county, with a long history of getting anti-gay initiatives on the ballot. We need to get ready to win that vote right now.
