This photo was snapped by Alan earlier today, and spotted outside of his polling place. Looks like this person picked the winners and, at least where I’m standing tonight a lot of people can’t see how those two could work together. But think about it for a moment, one thing the Obama campaign was really good at doing was reaching out to and inspiring people who might not have voted in the past – record voter turn out confirms that. However it’s a mistake to think that anyone who supports Obama is a social liberal, many of the folks who see where the country is headed financially and want a new direction could be very conservative (true conservatives are disgusted by what’s been going on in the white house for the last 8 years) and those are the same people who might be firm supporters of Prop 8. These are gut reaction voteres who will read “eliminate same sex marriage” and think “eliminate gays” and click yes. It’s kind of a double edged sword if you look at it like that, but unfortunately it’s more disappointing than shocking.
