Great F#@king timing
Connecticut, following Massachusetts and California, legalized gay marriage today through court action. The CT Supreme Court found, as had California's and Massachusetts' that marriage laws that define marriage as being between a man and a woman deny equal protection to gays. As far as I am concerned this is as obvious as saying the sky is blue on a clear day. But the timing is disastrous. Three weeks before the election, with a ballot initiative in California trying to amend the states constitution to overturn the court's decision, and with Sarah Palin trying desperately to inject social issues into the presidential campaign, the timing couldn't be better for the Republicans. They can finally try to distract everyone from the economy with a good old wedge issue--the same one they employed in 2004. Hopefully the American people are smart enough (or scared enough) not to let them get away with that crap.
