Get your stinkin laws off me, you damned dirty apes

It is one thing to believe the majority of America is a bunch of morons. It is quite another to have it proven to you.

Frankly, the presidential election is low on my priority list of concerns after last night. No, the fact that 11 states in the US voted to amend the Constitution to discriminate against gays and lesbians shows that we’re all still just a bunch of frightened monkeys.

Yes, nearly 900,000 people in Oregon alone voted for this. That’s more than voted for Bush for president in the state. Same for Mississippi, a staunchly conservative Republican state. Which means this goes beyond Republican or Democrat. It’s strictly a vote of fear and ignorance. I have a number of gay and lesbian friends, and I must wonder how this feels to them, to be stripped of basic human dignity in this “enlightened” age.
