• Californians to Decide the Fate of Gaydom

    Left out of the presidential battle yet again, California has a new ploy to remain relevant this election: Dump on gay people!

    A vote for Proposition 8 on the California ballot…

    Changes California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry.  Provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.

    The proposed amendment has elicited strong opinions from all sides of the political spectrum and– this being California– a whole slew of famous people weighing in:

    Against the amendment:

    * Brad Pitt,  who favors marriage for all consenting adults except himself.

    * Melissa Etheridge, who has promised that if voters reject Prop. 8, she will never again play her terrible rendition of "Born in the USA."

    * Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who would really prefer to not discuss gay marriage anymore until they are safely in office.

    For the amendment:

    * LA Dodgers second baseman (and Texas resident)  Jeff Kent, who started hating gay people when he realized their voices sound like Barry Bonds.

    * Out-of-state Mormons, who have pumped over $20 million into the cause.

    * Presidential candidate John McCain, who has always believed that marriage is overrated.

    Who will win?  Who spend tomorrow writing a new ballot initiative for 2010?  And is Barry Bonds actually gay or does he just have an effeminate voice?  Stay tuned…
