Voters approve same-sex marriage for the first time

(CNN) - In a historic turnaround, the ballot box is showing America's shifting attitudes about same-sex marriage. After gay marriage rights died at the polls dozens of times in the past, on Tuesday they passed in at least two states.

Rarely do popular votes reflect such dramatic social changes.

    Prepare yourselves more extreme politics. The TEA-rex Party is facing extinction, and they will only get more desparate.

    The right wingnuts said that if Obama is reelected, God help us. You would think they would be able to figure out that God did help us, and we reelected Obama.

    It was a good night for liberals. Baldwin, Brown, Warren, gay marriage, legal weed....

    Huh, you'd think the "liberal media" would be talking about the embrace of liberals and the refute of the right-wing...don't hold your breath waiting for that, though.
