Prop 8: CA Supremes Say Constitution is...Constitutional

In a sign that there is some sanity left in this world, the California Supreme Court ruled 6-1 today that the state Constitution is constitutional. Meaning, the constitutional amendment called Proposition 8, defining marriage in California as the union of a man and a woman, was properly adopted.

The legal challenge Prop 8 was a stretch to begin with, as proven by the fact that the same court that previously struck down the legislative version of Prop 8 (called Prop 22) upheld the constitutional amendment version.

The legal challenge did serve, however, to smoke out where Jerry Brown stands on the issue, as he failed in his duty as Attorney General to defend the will of the people in this matter. That's fine -- Prop 8 is upheld and Brown has been exposed for the out of touch liberal he is, thumbing his nose again at the will of Californians to maintain marriage as the union of one man and one woman. That's a win-win.
