What's at 9 Higgins Street, you ask? Well, that would be the headquarters of Maine's Republican Party. So you can come for the phone banking, and stay to feed the elephants.

It's interesting, too, considering that Maine is a state that's represented in the U.S. Senate by two moderate Republicans who have both been pretty much on the LGBT community's side when it comes to our issues (even if they're both staying silent on Question 1). It's a shame that the state party is siding with this "snowjob via call-ins" rather than their own Snowe and Collins.

So, the bigotry and racism and religious oppression continue under the Republicans banner.
