The Florida4Marriage group has 587,000 signatures out of the 600,000 required to force an amendment on the 2008 ballot banning gay marriage. Aside from the irony of the group's name (kind of like the "clean air act"), notice also the timing. Doing this in 2008 - a presidential election year - is simply a good bait and switch tactic.
The Republican presidential candidate will not be strong enough to bring swarms of voters to the polls, but an intense hatred of homosexuals should certainly do the trick. And hey, while there, why not go ahead and vote for Rudy/Romney/Fred
