We have a marriage ‘protection’ amendment on the ballot here in November. This decision in California is a dream come true for the amendment’s supporters. It will energize their base with the fear of it happening here and help them get out the vote. This means a much bigger Republican turnout.
Although Obama is already expected to lose Florida, this will almost certainly guarantee it and by a much bigger margin.
California could have done us (and the entire country) a big favor if they had waited until after the election to make this decision.
