The famous publicity firm who won California Prop 8 and who then won Pollies for their successful campaign will be helping out in Maine:

Gay marriage foes in Maine have hired the public relations firm that led the successful Proposition 8 proposal to overturn same-sex marriage in California, while supporters have turned to a legislative aide who led a successful campaign to retain Maine's gay rights law.

Schubert Flint Public Affairs will provide guidance to the campaign to repeal Maine's gay marriage law, just as it did during the Proposition 8 campaign in California.

At least Mainers know what sort of arguments are coming. They should keep any straight pols with big mouths who might say that same-sex marriage is coming "whether you like it or not" at home.

Here's the firm's greatest hit:

The children:

And the Wirthlins:

I wouldn't be surprised if they run a few repeats up in Maine. The children... argument is the best these folks have got.

You can bet they'll focus on the Massachusetts issue. It hits closer to home than anything Gavin Newsom could provide.

I suppose we'll keep hearing about how "brilliant" Frank Schubert is supposed to be during this campaign. Funny that "homophobe" never comes up much when describing that miserable man.
