My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Ouch. That's Gotta Hurt.

Not once . . .

The state Supreme Court reinstated Georgia's constitutional ban on gay marriage Thursday,

but twice . . .

New York's highest court ruled Thursday that gay marriage is not allowed under state law, rejecting arguments by same-sex couples who said the law violates their constitutional rights.

on the same day the Courts declined to do what the Left has been unable to accomplish at the ballot box. Just to refresh your memories, the Georgia case was in relation to a ballot initiative that had 76% of Georgians rejecting both gay marriage and civil unions. And, just in case this isn't reported, the New York court explicitly told the appelants to try to get what they want through the ballot.

"We do not predict what people will think generations from now, but we believe the present generation should have a chance to decide the issue through its elected representatives,"

Now, if there's a state in the union where this has a chance through the electeds, it would be in New York. It will be fascinating to watch what happens in the New York state assembly in the next few weeks.

And, on a related topic, is anybody else out there worried that the abundance of ballot initiatives on this very subject slated for Colorado's ballot (at last count, I think, there will be FOUR such) will muddy it all up so bad that any real chance at getting a clear idea of what the electorate is thinking is, at best, iffy?
