    It’s nice to see Democrats becoming more and more unabashedly pro-marriage equality rather than the wishy-washiness we’ve endured for years. They’re total cowards to have waited this long, but it’s nice.

    Now that’s a statement, even though he has no power in the situation. Would like to see this more often, instead of “its not up to me” that is prevalent.

    And if Target’s pet candidate Tom Emmer was in this spot, he would have been cheerleading the effort.

    Let’s always remember that Minnesota looked poised to possibly become the sixth state to recognize marriage equality until the unexpected takeover of both houses of the state legislature by Republicans last November. Had that surprising result not occurred, we might now be talking about Governor Dayton signing a marriage equality bill instead of our community having to spend resources to fight this hateful amendment. Republicans only were able to seize control of the legislature because the haters turned out to vote while too many LGBT and progressive voters stayed home last November. Thanks, LincolnLounger, Jason and all those others here who have argued that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats and that the interests of our community would be well served by sitting out elections and withholding our votes from Democrats! Well played!

    HELL YES. Go Dayton! I am EXTREMELY glad he did something like this. And actually, I think I would have been annoyed if not.

    Because seriously, what the hell has been happening to Minnesota? We want to remain the best and most progressive state in the Midwest, well then Democrats, you’d better put the freaking conservatives in check. They had their fun for a few years, and it’s time it swing back to normalcy – AKA NOT BANNING GAY MARRIAGE.

    I’m glad we’re turning a corner from candidates that are pro-equality hiding that away when they aid in progress to people coming out publicly to decry stuff like this even though it could cost them “family votes” or whatever

    “Minnesota looked poised to possibly become the sixth state to recognize marriage equality until the unexpected takeover of both houses of the state legislature by Republicans last November”

    This is exactly what happens to a constituency that spends its time on http://www.towleroad.com (with the a## glued to the couch) instead of campaigning and giving voters a ride to the polling stations by the carload on election day. I hate to be the one to break this to you but you can complain on blogs for a thousand years and it wouldn’t change a thing.
