    Read Kennedy on the Sodomy decision.  Our argument, and Walker's ruling, is based on Kennedy's reasoning.  In his dissent, Scalia argued that Kennedy had set up the legal basis for same sex marriage. It's going to be OK.

    Although yes, it would be nice to have any one of these hacks gone.  But we've already got the 5 we need.

    •  This ruling is well-reasoned and clear. (1+ / 0-)

      I hope it stands.  What a coup if Justice Kennedy abandons the gang of four on this one.  Please, please,please!!!

      And Walker very cleverly put Kennedy on the spot in his decision.  But Kennedy was still among the five who voted against counting votes in Bush v. Gore.  Anything can happen.
