I'd like to at least point out that even if we are all allowed to marry at some point, Andrew Sullivan should not.

Posted by Mr. Poe | May 30, 2008 12:28 PM

He already has, Mr. Poe.

Posted by Dan Savage | May 30, 2008 12:30 PM

Well this is just unacceptable. I am now officially against gay marriage.

Posted by Mr. Poe | May 30, 2008 12:33 PM

And, in the world of REAL statistics, did you know that Utah has the highest rate of increase in gay couples over the past decade of any state in the union?

Dan, thanks for this - the Wolf Blitzer commentary on your earlier updates made me laugh, out loud. Can you send Adrian Ryan to SLC to conduct some interviews about the effects that these poll results are having on Utahns? Inquiring minds want to know....

Mr Poe - he's already hitched, Mass. style

Thanks for the newsflash, jackseattle. Never mind my #4 acknowledgment.

Having Andrew Sullivan married is the best thing to happen to the gay community in years. Now let's just hope and pray he's monogamous. And agoraphobic. And forgets how to read and write.

Speaking of gay media personalities that shouldn't get married, I'm reminded of a passage from David Brock's "Blinded by the Right":

Drudge picked me up at a friend's house in the Hollywood Hills in his red Geo Metro, arriving with an impressive bouquet of yellow roses. Jesus, I thought, Drudge thinks we're going on a date. After dinner at the famed West Hollywood restaurant Dan Tana's, he suggested we go bar hopping along the gay strip on Santa Monica Boulevard, which Drudge navigated like a pro.
(Six months hence, I received the following e-mail message from Drudge, under the subject heading "XXX." Drudge wrote: "Laura [Ingraham] spreading stuff about you and me being fuck buddies. I should only be so lucky.")

Congratulations on your poll-tampering.

It must have had a huge effect on the mainstream media; everybody's buzzing about it.

I hate to point this out, but an online poll has almost nothing to do with the popular opinion. (This just means that sane people did a better job of getting the word out to their friends.)

Though I guess the illusion that 'everybody is ok with it' might actually help make people ok with it.

Uh, mormons can be flexible and open minded don't you know?

Oh, Allie. Thank you for playing the Slog.

From an earlier post re: this poll:

I cleared my cookies at least 50 times last night to vote yes yes yes yes!!! That was FUN!!!!

You don't have to continually clear your cookies, browsers have a setting in the "internet options" (or whatever your browser calls it) setting that will let you decline a cookie once and the site will not be able to set a cookie again within a period of 2 weeks (Firefox) to ever (Internet Explorer).

Just so you know.
