Poll: Fewer Wisconsin residents now wish to tarnish their state's constitution

by Jeremy Hooper

A new Wisconsin poll suggests that 61% of the state's residents are in favor of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, down from the 66% who announced their support in a similar poll two years ago. And while it would of course be better if the pro-discrimination camp were represented in the 0% -.001% range, it's certainly encouraging that 5% of the state's population seemingly finds us more entitled to the pursuit of happiness than they did just two short years ago. Hell, following this trend, we may be walking down an aisle before we need a walker to do so. ::sigh:: One can dream.

Unfortunately, a proposed gay marriage ban will go to Wisconsin voters this November, giving the state's gays just six months to drum up enough support to kill the misguided measure. Our solution:

B000052Xcd.01. Sclzzzzzzz -1
Bausch & Lomb ReNu MultiPlus Multi-Purpose, No-Rub Formula

Our idea to kill the proposed legislative bullsh*t: Oh, we wish we had one. Promise a big ass slice of wedding cake to everyone you see, possibly? Tout the prospects of an ultra-stocked open bar, perhaps? Take a Sharpie and draw a big black mark on various history books, thus representing how this writing of discrimination into the state's constitution will ultimately look to future generations?

Eh, we're sure you guys will think of something -- just keep the faith and pray that common sense will be in fashion this Fall.
