Schwarzenegger puts official kibosh on gay marriage bill

by Jeremy Hooper

   As expected, California Governactor Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially vetoed a bill that would have allowed for queer nuptials in the Golden state. In a less anticipated development, the formal announcement of this gubernatorial action made us puke in our mouths a little.

In a Kindergarten cop-out regarding his lack of signature, Arnie said the bill "simply adds confusion to a constitutional issue," adding, "If the ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, this bill is not necessary. If the ban is constitutional, this bill is ineffective." We, however, think a more accurate statement would be, "If the ban on queer nuptials is unconstitutional, Arnold just missed a golden opportunity to become a civil rights icon. If the ban is constitutional, we're moving to Canada."
