I hesitated to post this because I'd already reported on it. Now that everyone else - including the Indianapolis Star - has said the same damn thing, would everyone please get off my back for saying it weeks ago? Indiana's marriage amendment is dead.
Can we move on now to the other issues that we could have won this year? With hate crimes we allowed the right wingers to use the same technique to kill it that they used last year. Indiana is one of five states that doesn't have a hate crimes law.
We can do better than dragging around a corpse and propping it up like Weekend at Bernie's. We need to move ourselves forward. The status quo just isn't good enough anymore.
