    Every time we read about the pending Republican efforts to enshrine anti-gay discrimination in the Minnesota constitution, we need to remember that this is only happening because LCR/GOProud types and other Republican apologists, like frequent commenter LincolnLounger on this site, got their way and too many LGBT voters and progressive voters decided to sit out the 2010 midterm elections. The governor of Minnesota is as enthusiastic a supporter of marriage equality as any governor in the nation and, had we turned out in sufficient numbers and kept Dems in control in the Minnesota state legislature, we’d be talking about marriage equality legislation in Minnesota right now. We’ll have another shot in 2012 to turn things around in Minnesota but it will only happen if we stop listening to the Republican apologists who keep claiming that there is no difference between Dems and Repuglicans.
