I'm in a... New Jersey state of mind?

This hurts so bad.

Not that it happened. I'm thrilled that the good justices of New Jersey, or at least four of them, do not have their heads up their arses.

But how could it happen in New Jersey before it happened in New York? This is a matter of great and grevious shame to me.

All I can say, is that Eliot better keep his promises.

I didn't know Spitzer was running for Governor, although I'm not surprised.

I was quite pleased to hear about New Jersey. I hope that other states start to do the same thing.

Cuz Jersey is the shit, yo.

Wow. I can't believe I just said that.

I'm worried about your animosity towards the venerable Garden State:)

Lord, I could not disagree more. They couldn't shut up for three weeks? NJ doesn't have much of a fundamentalist base, but this has real traction in, you know, Missouri Tennessee and Virginia, and not for the forces of good and evil. This is just the sort of stuff that gets those voters out and voting for the lunatic reactionaries on the other side of the aisle. House is looking encouraging but this could easily backfire in the Senate races. We are going to get real close, but stuff like this needs to stay out of the news if we are going to stand a chance on 11/7 - not to mention that thinking to 2008 we have to remember that we have democratic senators from places like ND and NE -- those seats are as naturally republican as santorum's office should be a democrat. It's totally dumb that the fundies get all twirled up about this, but they do. be careful what you wish for.

As someone who grew up on the PA border of NJ and is now married to a native NJer, I've got to say that despite the huge hair, cookie-cutter developments, and insistence on saying "I'm going down the shore" (doesn't a TO belong in there??), I must say that NJ surprises me over and over again. -As does NY but not in a good way.

I've heard your argument before (mostly from heterosexual Democrats, to be honest) and I hate it. I know some voters are mobilized around the issue of gay marriage, but wanting Dems to regain control of the House and Senate doesn't mean that civil liberties should be ignored.

It is an injustice that same-sex couples in this country do not have the same rights under the law as other taxpaying, productive citizens do by virtue of the fact that they are in straight relationships. It isn't right, and when something isn't right, it needs to change, no matter what upheavals it may cause. There were upheavals surrounding abolitionism and the civil rights movement in the south, too. But that doesn't mean that they shouldn't have happened.
