the douchebag report

Today, some pathetic, fat, white guy came to my door asking if I would vote yes on proposition 8. I told him I am completely against it, actually. He said thank you and walked away. He spent about 40 minutes talking to my neighbor, who I'm guessing is for it. There is a rumor on the web that the yes on prop. 8 people will be putting yard signs in front of their houses as a united front of bigotry on September 22, and that these neighborhood visits are more about getting supporters to put up signs than changing anyone's mind.

Now, is it a coincidence that sometime between this morning and this afternoon, my Barack Obama yard sign was removed from my grass, bent into several pieces, and left in the road in front of my house? Even if it wasn't this hateful guy, it was some other hateful person, who put their hands on my property and violated my right to free speech.

This isn't gonna make you feel any better ...

According to Frank Schubert, 'Yes on 8' campaign manager, the mobilization of LDS (Mormon) volunteers could save his campaign up to $26 million in costs related to micro-targeting persuadable voters.

Micro-Targeting Mormons

So much for campaign finance rules.

Just a heads up: Mike Huckabee recently gave an interview in which he holds Mitt Romney responsible for implementing gay marriage in Massachusetts.


Welcome to the coalition.

I wish that more rank and file members of the LDS (Mormon) church would realize: the anti-gay coalition they've joined in California is one that includes folks who - given the chance - would vote their church out of existence.

Folks like Mike Huckabee and his Evangelical buddies.

Oh, and please, just let the anger go ... you sound like good people.
