Me When I Drunk Facebook

I have had wonderful conversations with people from different spectrums about the two proposed amendments Minnesota votes on this Tuesday. I can only offer this: Voting "No" on Amendment 1 will not legalize gay marriage, or mandate that your 8-year-old will learn words in school like "homosexual", "queer" or "different". It will only imply that your lesbian neighbors will not get legally married without further evaluation/discussion of the topic, and that your gay friends, family members and colleagues will not feel explicitly ostracized . Voting "No" on Amendment 2 will not "protect" your vote from the myth perpetuated as "voter fraud". In reality, Voter ID laws are explicitly designed to prevent minorities, seniors, students and lower-income citizens from voting. And at the risk of sounding pedantic, you can vote No on both and *still* vote for Mitt Romney if you so choose, and God will not disown you. I promise.

          There's a typo in the original post, but it has over 20 likes already, SO THERE. My new drunk fantasy now has nothing to do with sex or Channing Tatum or a combination thereof. Instead, it is brunch mimosas with Rachel Maddow and Steve Kornacki.
