Wow. Woo! and Hoo!



Seriously, gang, this feels really big:


Unanimous ruling: Iowa marriage no longer limited to one man, one woman



This isn't some "liberal enclave on the coasts", but is 'middle-America' in all of its glory. I really didn't expect this result coming from one of the 'plain states'. I'm amazed and kinda excited.

But, we'll have to see if the Governor is going to accept this... or the actual citizens of Iowa. After all, just because an attempt at a constitutional amendment failed before doesn't mean it can't be rolled out again. And succeed, now that there's really something for the right-wing to seize on. After all, Prop 8 in CA passed - and that was a crushing shock.


Update:
Bingo. That didn't take long.
