Well, hey, connect the dots from this story.
In a crushing defeat for gay rights proponents the election yesterday supported Proposition 8; a ban on gay marriage.
Gay marriage was legal for about a year, and as many as 18,000 couples got married. But this will stop as soon as the new law takes effect.
The results were close, but in the end the measure was passed with a vote of 52% in favor. The Associated Press noted that ethnic origin had an impact on support Proposition 8, with the most support coming from the black community.
So Obama mobilized the black community to vote and they voted more decisively for Prop 8 than all those limp-wristed white people.
