California Supreme Court Puts State In Play for McCain [UPDATED]
Details on California high court's legalization of same-sex "marriage" here.
There will be a ballot initiative to overturn the court's decision on the November ballot in California. Such an initiative to define marriage as between 1 man and 1 woman in Ohio 4 years ago helped put Bush over the top.
Regular Guy Paul makes some predictions.
UPDATE #2 (16 May)
That deflating sound you heard yesterday afternoon was all the Obamoloch Catholics saying "Awwwwww, couldn't they have waited until AFTER the election was over?"
UPDATE #3 (16 May)
Ed Morrisey agrees:
... The referendum will bring conservatives out in force this November, but it will also face a huge amount of opposition throughout the state and the intelligentsia. In truth, constitutional amendments usually make for bad policy; they act as sledgehammers when scalpels do better, and they’re difficult to reverse when necessary. Unfortunately, the court forced opponents of gay marriage into this tactic, and all will depend on whether they can get enough people to the polls.(emphasis added)
The extent to which they do will benefit McCain without a doubt, and it could force the Democrats to spend a lot more time and money on the presidential race in the Golden State. They cannot afford to lose the massive Electoral College votes if they plan on winning the presidency. The Supreme Court probably just put California in play for the first time in 20 years.
