The Opposite of Michele Bachmann

As I learned while in Minnesota for five days, the Minnesota GOP has decided to push a referendum for next year for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.

This woman, who unlike the lunatic Congresswoman from the 6th district represents the best of Minnesota's Republicans, had this to say:

Aside from the obvious vileness of the amendment itself, it would have no effect- same-sex marriage is already illegal in Minnesota, so it will stay illegal whether the amendment passes or fails. It's obviously only being pursued as a voter turnout machine, which will undoubtedly fail when Barack Obama wins Minnesota in 2012, even if the Republican nominee is Tim Pawlenty.
