It's 'NO' time
***SEE ALSO: Compare our thoroughly positive ad with their latest.
That ad made me cry, which is certainly a much better emotion than roiling anger which is what the ads from the other side do to me. I also think it is because the ad is full of people I know, which again, won't happen with the other ones since they are full of stock footage as Jeremy has so helpfully found for us.
We are down to the wire but we will be victorious. I believe it in my heart.
No on 1!

I've got a feeling that the latest No on 1 ad is meant to drive the no votes out to the polls to ensure the large turnout needed to defeat this question and preserve marriage equality. Maybe it's more about getting us out to the polls than convincing the other side to switch to us?

Win or lose, I have to say that ads like these are probably the equivalent of "putting our best foot forward." Maybe I'm biased, and these ads just make ME (pun??) feel better, by stroking my ego. But I also have to believe that they are impactful on anyone open-minded enough to give us a chance.

You know, whatever question 1 turns out to be, I will have to say that No on 1/Protect Maine Equality did a fantastic job campaigning. With the polls as close as they are, its anybody's race right now and I truly believe the strategies that they used were one thousand times better than the strategies used in California. We will not let faith-based discrimination get us down. We will keep pushing and, in the end, we will win. NOM, FRC, CWA, and all those anti-equality forces can slow us down but equality driven people will never stop. We will never let up. We will be victorious till everyone is treated treated equally, including same-sex marriage.
In the meantime, I'm phonebanking from home in Florida this weekend for both Maine and Washington. I encourage everyone to do so as well.
