|08:16 am - California gay marriage has been brought to you by a Republican|
"Hooray! Now we get to have ANOTHER wedding. The last one was epic!"
That was the reaction of my friend Chris Dallman on Twitter to the news that gay marriage is once again legal in California, thanks to the legal efforts of Theodore B. Olson to overturn Proposition 8. Mr. Olsen is the prominent conservative Republican lawyer who litigated on behalf of the plaintiffs to redress their unequal treatment under the law.

I am so proud of the members of my political party right now!
Current Mood: ecstatic
Current Music: "Anthem" by Christopher Dallman
I'm so happy a member of my party was responsible for overturning it -- it puts the lie to the image of Republicans, especially conservative ones, as hating gay people, which is so very, very untrue.
