Earlier this year, we brought you joyous news of the Maine state legislature passing a gay marriage bill and thus making me wonder how the place I left ended up more progressive than the place I left for.
Yesterday, the bill was repealed in a referendum (as gay rights measures always were in Maine when I was growing up). Lots of out-of-state money got out the vote from rural conservatives, it would seem. Maine voters did, however, vote to expand the medical marijuana law (libertarianism, except when it’s trumped by bigotry!).
Well, fuck you, you mutant inbred hicks. I hope you all drive your snowmobiles while stoned, and crash and die horribly.
