Debate: What is the best way to get gay marriage in CA? I am very uncomfortable with the idea of using the courts to overturn a popular vote that overturned the courts. But I also agree that going door to door isn't going to change enough votes. I like to think that the current trend of increased support for gay marriage will continue enough that in a couple of years a ballot initiative will get enough support to reverse Prop. 8. Not sure if it's worth the wait or the risk of it not happening, but I don't want this to be settled by the CA Supreme Court. Bonus story: Divorce Rates Higher in States that Ban Gay Marriage.

Everything that Palin says makes my brain hurt. It's absurd that she inspires confidence in so many people.

And I do agree with you about gay marriage in CA, although the emotional side of me just wants it to happen no matter the means. I think it'll sit better with the people if it's put to a vote. If the courts pass it, people will respect the decision less.
