Busy Day in Concord

I'll have more witty and insightful commentary up later (if I feel like it/ever get around to it), but in the meantime, here's the Cliff Notes version:

Gay marriage - YES
Medical marijuana - YES
Transgendered rights - NO
Four-year term for governor - NO
Seat belts - PUNT
Death penalty repeal - PUNT

Elsewhere in the Granite State recently, two special elections for open seats in the state legislature were won quite handily by the Republican candidates, both of whom were running on a platform of lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

All in all, it's been a pretty good week on the local front.

It will be interesting to see how well the Democrats fare at the polls the next time around, now that they actually have a record of wanton tax hikes and reckless spending to try to defend, as opposed to riding a wave of empty, meaningless Hopenchange bullshit.
