Headline that will delight many progressives until they realize there are multiple meaings of the second word: Romney's resigned

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Wp-Content Photos 200Px Mitt Romney-1Telling the Boston Globe,``I have to follow the law"..."This is a nation of laws, even if I don't like them," Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has reluctantly indicated that he won't challenge Friday's Superior Court ruling saying that Rhode Island gay couples can marry in the Bay State. Though we do hear that when asked during the RI gays' services, "If anyone objects to why these two people should be married, speak now or forever hold your peace," Romney will raise forth literally tied hands, give sad puppy dog eyes, and sigh at the cruel legalities that keep him from thwarting the soon-to-be-wedded duo's happiness.

Poor Mitt.

Romney is continuing his anti-gay marriage pushes as he makes his case to become the GOP's 2008 presidential nominee, so the Rhode Island-centric ruling is certainly not good for his conservative image. But hey, what fair, right, and just for gays ruling is?
