Palmetto State Limbo

Well, ladies, laddies and germs, it's as feared, the state whose motto is "While I breath, I hope," (dum spiro spero), is temporarily hopeless. South Carolina went heavily for pig piling a discriminatory anti-same-sex-marriage amendment on its DOMA law.

The results at 9:40 p.m. are:

Amendment - 1 Define Marriage - 722 of 2059 Precincts Reporting

NameVotesPct
Yes241,93676.86

No72,83423.14

Lackaday, the Palmetto State has mired its document of freedom with a stripping of liberty from a whole class of its citizens. The pro-marraige-equality forces were too nice and too quiet. The regressive ones mirror the middle of the nation's red states.
