Prop 8 Supporters STILL Trying to Stop Gay Marriage in California

Good grief, you guys, unclench and just forget it! Not only did you lose--repeatedly--you have suffered no harm. Gay people have resumed marrying each other in California, and life has gone on as before. And now, you're just embarrassing yourselves, and hurting your (dubious) cause.

  2. Oh, Dan, you're trying to get my goat, aren't you? The original Prop 8 case tried by Judge Vaughn Walker wasn't won because he was liberal. (I don't even know if he WAS liberal, he was appointed by George H. W. Bush.) It was won because the defense didn't have a credible case. I followed that one closely, down to the transcripts. It was even turned into a play, because of how lopsided it was. The defense's key witness pretty much made the plaintiff's case, and even later switched sides. There's very little chance that SCOTUS would have made a different decision, had they decided not to punt.
