Mitt is clearly losing sleep at night thinking about the homos
I’m really tired of talking about fundie suck-up Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts. The man whose Mormon faith makes him suspect with The Base is practically foaming at the mouth trying to prove how much he hates gay folks to gain some traction as a 2008 Rethug candidate.
He really doesn’t need to try any harder; he’s looking quite desperate. Mitt’s latest move is a call for those activist judges to force a ballot initiative on marriage. (NYT):
Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts said on Sunday that he would ask the stateâ€™s highest court to order a question banning same-sex marriage onto the ballot if legislators did not address the issue.
Mr. Romney, a Republican, said he would file a request this week for a justice of the Supreme Judicial Court to direct the secretary of state to place the question on the ballot if lawmakers do not vote on the issue on Jan. 2, the final day of the session.
The governor, an opponent of same-sex marriage who decided not to seek re-election as he considers running for president, made his announcement to the cheers of same-sex-marriage opponents at a rally on the Statehouse steps. Supporters of same-sex marriage staged a protest across the street.
Mitt fully believes that civil rights should be voted on by the people and he’s dead wrong.
“One of the tenets of the Constitution is that you do not put the rights of a minority up for a popularity contest,” said Mark Solomon, campaign director of Mass Equality, a group that supports same-sex marriage. â€œIt is one of the very principles this country was founded upon.”
I see konagod is a tad riled up at the blow-dried governor.
