Somebody just texted me with “California supreme court just overturned the ban on same sex marriage. Is it time for Flowers for Al and Don 2?”
My first reaction: “crap, like I’ve got time for that”.
But this is great news. It’s a fantastic victory in this long-fought battle. From The Chicago Tribune:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has twice vetoed legislation that would’ve granted marriage rights to same-sex couples, said in a news release that he respected the court’s decision and “will not support an amendment to the constitution that would overturn this state Supreme Court ruling.”
Conservative organizations, of course, will be ramping up their campaigns. If this becomes a central campaign issue for the national election, who does it help? I’m guessing McCain, but I’m not sure.
