THE ELECTIONS

I’m leery of seeing a national trend, but the GOP certainly has little to celebrate today. The Schwarzenegger losses are the most dispiriting to me. Texas’s enshrinement of anti-gay prejudice in its own constitution is depressing but hardly surprising (they’re still proudly naming their towns “white”). The vote in Maine, moreover, confirms the federalist approach to gay issues. Let tolerant states compete with intolerant ones – and lead the way toward a more inclusive America. One thing I would say to my Democratic friends: if you think merely opposing Bush will win you back the Congress next year, dream on. Or, better still, read on. You need constructive ideas, not more Kossian rants.
