John McCain sent California’s gay marriage foes an email yesterday backing their unholy mission: “The campaign says it received an e-mail from McCain Thursday in which the Arizona senator expressed his support for the group’s efforts ‘to recognize marriage as a unique institution between a man and a woman.’ McCain has previously said that while he does not back banning same-sex marriage at the federal level, he thinks it is appropriate for states to do so.” So, Log Cabin, how are your talks with McCain going?
