JUMP AROUND BITCHES

Well, here's one less thing for me to feel superior about sitting here in Illinois, and I couldn't be happier: 

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison Friday overturned Wisconsin's gay marriage ban, striking down an amendment to the state constitution approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2006.

Crabb did not stay her ruling but also did not immediately issue an order blocking the enforcement of the order, leaving it for the moment unclear whether couples could immediately marry in the courthouses of Wisconsin.

Instead, Crabb asked the gay couples who had sued over the ban to describe by June 16 exactly what they wanted the judge to block with respect to the enforcement of the law. She said she would then address whether to stay her decision while the matter is on appeal.

Freep the poll at the link. 

This son of a bitch gives a bad name to sons of bitches everywhere: 

Last month, state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen acknowledged he would not be surprised to lose the case. He asked the judge to immediately block her own decision if she does strike down the ban. Normally, lawyers wait until a judge rules before asking for a stay.

Von Clownstick intends to appeal. Good luck with that, asshole. I don't know if you've noticed but we are emphatically NOT THERE anymore. 

God, remember 2004? Do you guys remember 20fucking04, when gay marriages in San Fran (God bless all those brave couples, may they all live a hundred years) were going to doom the Democrats' chances and make all liberals look like pervert-loving weirdos or something? Remember those weddings? I sent flowers to those weddings. I was sitting at work trying to pretend I was, you know, working, when I was refreshing people's blogs like mad because they kept posting pictures of weddings and I couldn't get enough of the pictures of weddings. 

The avalanche started then, and the pebbles voted to roll it back, and DOMA came down anyway. It's been too long a road, for too many many people, to get us to here, but here? Here right now?

Love wins. So you go appeal. You go be sour and angry and talk about how hard it is to live in a world with other happy people in it. Go waste your goddamn time. Go pretend that most of the time life doesn't suck and life isn't short and life doesn't need more sweetness and joy in it all the time. Go smash your head on the rocks if you want. It's all over.

    1) Obvious statement – so many courts have ruled against gay-marriage bans, that such rulings are approaching the point of being stare decisis / pro forma.
    2) “Crabb asked the gay couples who had sued over the ban to describe by June 16 exactly what they wanted the judge to block with respect to the enforcement of the law. ”
    Uh, isn’t that also kind of obvious ?
