COFFEE 526 - PROP 8 DECISION TODAY, WATCH FOR ILLINOIS CIVIL UNIONS

Good morning!  Today, all eyes are on CALIFORNIA as the Supreme Court releases their Proposition 8 Decision at around 10A.M. Pacific (1P.M. Eastern).  This afternoon, there will be demonstrations all over the nation in reaction to whatever the decision is--probably one near you.  Visit dayofdecision.com.  We doubt President Obama is going to be at any of them, even though he's going to be in California TOMORROW.  Then this Saturday, MEET IN THE MIDDLE FOR EQUALITY!  Law Dork tells us what the Prop 8 Decision WILL and WON'T mean.

We may also get a SURPRISE from Illinois today--or at least at some point this week.  According to the Washington Blade, the legislature is poised to amend the last minute 'shell' bill to allow Civil Unions 30 days after the bill is passed... could it be today?  We'll find out.

TOAST TO MY FRIEND MIKE FOR A FUN EVENING IN BLOOMINGTON THIS SATURDAY!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
