The amazing Mr. Mitt Romney

Wouldn't we all just love to get Mitt Romney in a room and hook the prick up to a lie detector? Romney, who once won over the Log Cabin Republicans, is now a signatory to the National Organization for Marriage pledge that would require him to champion a federal marriage amendment. At this point, nobody knows what Romney really believes. The Amazing Mitt has probably even confused himself.

So today's reaction,  by Mitt, to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals comes as no surprise. However, even for Mitt, it is stunningly moronic.
Today, unelected judges cast aside the will of the people of California who voted to protect traditional marriage. This decision does not end this fight, and I expect it to go to the Supreme Court.
  • Yes Mitty. All federal judges are appointed rather than elected. The dissenting judge, by the way, is a Mormon who used to be Chairman of the Idaho Republican Party. He was nominated by The Decider.
  • That will of the people thing is really getting tiresome. It is the job of the judiciary to prevent the tyranny of the majority over a minority. The same would be true if Californians decided that Mormons should no longer be allowed to marry. You want to be President and you don't know that?
  • "Protect traditional marriage?" Please,Mitt. Even you can do better than that. Exactly how denying gays the right to marry provides any benefit to so-called "traditional" marriage will forever remain a mystery     along with magic underwear.

Early in 2009, Keith Olbermann summarized this (and I am paraphrasing) as the dumbest dispute ever. He went on to ask "What's it to ya?"  

Mr. Olbermann  was correct on both counts. Proponents of Proposition 8 win nothing if it is sustained and lose nothing if it is overturned. It begs the question of what interest people have in preventing another group of people from marrying. Like Mitt, I wonder if they know.
