Losing MN inequality campaign: Give us more money , hope for different result
The campaign that already wasted over five million dollars for the purposeless cause of discrimination is begging Minnesotans for even more cash:
Isn't it a little counterproductive for the same campaign—with the same name, same branding, and same iconography—to take the lead on this? I mean, the November loss is the reason why many previously on-the-fence lawmakers from both parties will surely come around to equality, built around the realization that the electorate is not as eager to "protect marriage" as the losing campaign pretended. Doesn't Minnesota For Marriage's continued presence in this conversation serve as a reminder of that loss? Won't even supporters wonder why the same arguments that failed to write discrimination into the constitution are somehow more convincing when applied to the conversation about extending denied rights?
But far be it from me to tell them to stop what seems to be a politically silly plan. I happen to like Minneapolis in the springtime. I look forward to some glorious weddings in the near future.
