Gay Marriage Legalized in New Jersey - Will This Be The October Surprise?
I'm fairly certain that by October 25 gay marriage will be legalized in New Jersey. The NJ Supreme Court has to deliver a decision by Oct 25th at the latest, and the Court is very pro-gay rights. Conservatives are expecting a defeat.

Is this the October Surprise that's supposed to galvanize conservatives?

1. They are running out of states to ban gay marriage in
The well is drying up for them.

3. EQUAL marriage, you mean
We are pursuing equality under the law for same-sex couples, not a separate but (un)equal "gay marriage."

Remember, it is all in how you frame the debate. :hi:
