The Jury Talks Back


(Ripping off the Weekly Standard’s) Sentences We Didn’t Finish:

Tim Rutten, writing on the California Supreme Court’s upholding of Proposition 8, “Legal precedents notwithstanding…”


  1. From Rutten’s post:

    This is a logically and morally incoherent decision that simply will plunge the state into another round of bitterly divisive initiative politics, while adding fuel to the growing sense that all three branches of California’s government have lost the ability to function in the public interest.

    Yeah, and over-turning prop 8 would have done no such thing at all.

    This way, at the least, the method by which Prop 8 was put on the ballot and adopted remains intact, allowing further efforts by the gay marriage supporters to succeed or fail, based on the strength of their argument.

    And if the majority of said people continue to allow people like Perez Hilton near microphones and cameras (or even the internet), then they will do more damage to their cause that not, since rarely does insulting people and personal attacks win you any converts to the cause.

  2. Perez Hilton is stuck here. It’s inevitable. This door’s wide open now. It’s going to happen, whether you like it or not.
