The poor dear was caught by his wife in bed with another man, I suppose. Somebody here really got under his skin.

Now don't all claim credit at once. Humility regarding one's accomplishments is an important quality.

With marriage equality polling at 50-50 in Oregon, it's very unlikely to pass in 2012. Remember that the people who actually vote skew older and they are least likely to support marriage equality.

While I usually support taking every chance we have at overturning these bans even if it takes multiple elections to get it done, in this case they probably shouldn't waste the money. A better bet would be to use that money to support the effort next door in Washington where recent polling shows only 37% of voters would vote to overturn a marriage equality bill passed by the legislature. That stands a much better chance of succeeding.

Luckily with the demographic shift happening in this country we'll be able to pass marriage equality in most states by the end of the decade.

We're at the 50-50 point right now, and with an average increase of 1% support per year, we'll be at a safe 60-40 split come 2020.
