It’s official. Nearly 20,000 marriages of gay couples were repealed last night. And their children made bastards.

We lost. And it was the hateful leadership of the Mormon Church, along with, reportedly, hefty black turnout, that pushed it over the top. From CNN’s exit polls.

And to be fair, the problems go far beyond the black vote and Mormon money. I’d like someone to explain to me why the leaders of our side of the campaign shouldn’t be metaphorically beaten to within an inch of their lives. We should have hired political professionals, even – eeks! – straight ones, to do this. But we relied on the usual gay names and faces because, cumbaya my lord, a PC group hug is far more important than actually winning. I’m disgusted. And I want to see some heads rolling.
