  •  I don't mind this ruling. (7+ / 0-)

    I think voter initiatives are an ass-stupid way of making law, that Prop 8 is unconstitutional, and that SCOTUS should impose marriage equality on the whole nation, but I do think that if a law is made on behalf of the people in a process explicitly designed to side-step statewide elected officials, those officials shouldn't have a de facto veto over whatever the people pass.

    That said, I strongly hope the 9th Circuit and SCOTUS strike Prop 8 down.
