Hooray Maine!

Same-sex couples can now get married in Maine. When Gov. John E. Baldacci (D) signed the law, he made Maine the fifth state overall to legalize marriage for same-sex couples. What's really cool is that Maine is the first state to allow marriage for same-sex couples without a court order (Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa) or without the state legislature having to overturn a governor's veto (Vermont).

Come on New York! Gov. David "My approval rating is seriously almost negative" Paterson has publicly said he would like to see this happen. Just because he seems to have fucked up everything else, doesn't mean that you should not vote to extend basic civil rights to state taxpayers.

And the countdown continues for California. *fingers crossed*
