Poll: Those damn undecideds need to pick a pot and poop on it

by Jeremy Hooper

   A new Wisconsin telephone poll shows 48% of the state's residents supporting the state's proposed amendment banning gay marriage, with 40% opposing iand 12% saying they are undecided.

And to those undecideds, we'd just like to say: "We can offer you two weeks paid vacation, access to the company condo, and dental. Oh wait a minute -- no, we can't. But we can offer the quiet comfort of knowing that you didn't vote to write this almost unbelievable bit o' bias into your state's most precious governing document. What have they got to offer on their side, the ability to not buy Dan and Steve a new waffle iron? Seems like a no-brainer to us, but whatever -- you think it over and let us know where you stand this November."

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4%. The amendment's margin of error, like all constitutional marriage bans, is somewhere between minor error that will, if passed, be swiftly corrected & legacy-tarnishing historical black mark that will, if passed, someday be remembered as one of history's greatest travesties of justice.
