Gay Marriage in California

GAY MARRIAGE IN CALIFORNIA….The state Senate voted Thursday to allow same sex marriage in California. Good for them. But if it passes the Assembly, Arnold has proposed a novel excuse for vetoing it:

Signaling a likely veto if it does pass, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s spokeswoman said he preferred to let judges sort out the legality of gay marriage; such a case is moving toward the state Supreme Court.

That’s something you don’t hear every day: the legislature should avoid legislating and instead let the judiciary legislate for them. Politics doesn’t get much more gutless than that.
