Election 2005: Statewide results

Seven of the nine ballot propositions were ratified yesterday, with Props 5 and 9 going down and the others all winning, most easily. I'm actually a little surprised at Prop 5's defeat. It was a rare amendment that had some merit to it, and it was the only one besides Prop 2 for which I saw any advertising - there were several TV ads promoting it in recent days. Don't know who had it in for it, but they carried the day.

And of course, gay marriage is now officially Double Secret Illegal in the state of Texas. I look forward to the immediate and sustained drop in the divorce rate that this heroic and courageous effort to strengthen and protect traditional marriage will undoubtedly bring.

Regarding Prop. 2, I'm sure the lawyers are already preparing their cases. We may have lost at the ballot box, but this ain't over, folks.

What happened in Harris County on Prop 2? What is behind the lopsided win?

Ok, I vented a little about Prop 2 here.

Oh that's cause in Harris County Republicans, Conservatives, Blue Collar Democrats, Christians, Blacks, Hispanics, etc. all voted for Prop. 2.

Pointy headed white liberals voted "no."

That explains the landslide that occurred.

Republicans, conservatives and Christians are 3 different groups? Who would have thunk it?
