The California Election Post-Mortem

prop_8.jpgFrom what we understand, Californians passed a measure that would give more rights to chickens and measure that would give LESS rights to homosexual couples.

According to the LAT, southern California was totally for the ban of same sex marriages.

Melissa Etheridge says we can forget her taxes on Daily Beast.

NYT reports that a gay marriage ban will be a gay business and gay money loss for the state:

David Paisley, a San Francisco-based marketing executive with a specialty in gay tourism, said California had four of the nation’s top 10 destinations for gay travelers: San Francisco, Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Mr. Paisley said that it was too early to speculate on the exact economic impact of Proposition 8, but that some public relations damage might have already been done.

Of course LA Weekly’s Patrick Range McDonald has been following everything that has happened with Proposition 8 since the beginning. Just don’t call him a blogger. Ahem.
