The wackos win one

Most polls show that most Americans don't have a problem with same-sex marriage. Most Americans do not feel threatened by these marriages. Most Americans say live and let live. Indeed, most Americans cannot understand why conservatives just won't leave these poor folks alone, for chissakes. And yet North Carolina just adopted an amendment to its constitution banning same-sex marriages. The state-wide voting wasn't even close. The amendment won 61% to 39%. Tellingly, however, the amendment lost in the state's largest metropolitan areas -- Charlotte, Greensboro, Asheville, Raleigh, and Durham. Ergo, this was a resounding victory for the rural, Bible-thumbing hicks. Yes, that's a politically incorrect way of saying the inmates are running the asylum in the Tar Heel State.
