You really don't want to click this link...

Oh, Jesus Christ.

And if I hear the term "activist courts" one more time, I'm going to go nuclear. Oh, wait, I'm sorry. Nuke-u-lar.

The Post's new legal blog has more to say on this here.

Delurking to give my 2 cents. The last thing Bush needs to worry about is gay marriage. First, it's none of his business. Second, he's gotten us in such a huge mess, shouldn't he worry about that first?

Why do homophobes always say that gay marriage is a threat to marriage? Isn't DIVORCE more a threat to someone's marriage than a gay couple being married to each other? Give me a f---ing break!

Along the lines of addy n.'s comment, check out this Americablog action alert and this follow-up report on APL's junior senator.

I observer for the record that my longtime House representative, who chairs the Judiciary subcommittee on terrorism and homeland security, is a lifelong bachelor. Let others read into that fact what they will.

Also? I'm not even a freakin' lawyer and I can see through this "activist judges" crap. They're not creating rights, they're upholding the equal-protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Hello?

Of course, you can't possibly be surprised...

It's a very timely distraction from the real issues right now (Iraq, oil, immigration, economy). Poll numbers are down, let's do something different to make people forget why...

Second, he's promised his "base" this sort of nonsense and it's an election year.

Third, he has nothing to lose now.

This year already, we've managed to screw up Medicaid, drain what's left of the economy and piss off more countries than before (Cheney insulting Russia, for example). Why not pass an amendment that a majority of Americans claim that they don't want? And oh yeah, let's repeal the estate tax and cut taxes for the rich, too...

Great, now you've gotten me started...

Ugh, I can't even form a coherent comment on this because I get so infuriated with the whole topic.

You're right, I didn't want to click the link. Grrr.

I won't even click the link because it's a terrible, terrible thing when a Yankee Transplant starts spitting and spewing and swearing. All I have to say is, if providing a guarantee that The Attorney can be with me if I am hospitalized, or can make decisions for our kids if I am incapacitated is somehow a threat to you, (that's the collective, straight "you", not the individual, angry pregnant "you") then I'll be damned. And yeah, like this frickin' issue is really worth worrying about, since our country clearly has no other problems. We're doing such a bang-up job with foreign relations, social services, and education in the U.S. ... uh-oh, here I go...

YT said it best. I am so furious when I turn on the news that I can't even think straight.

Hi, Jenn, and thanks for delurking.

Addy, I have still never heard an even remotely plausible explanation of how precisely gay marriage is supposed to be a threat to marriage. I know it sure as hell wouldn't have any effect on my marriage.
