CA Senate, thinking it's no 'Sin, it', says aye! to gay nups

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images California-3For the second time in as many years, the California legislature today passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage! Joining their friends in the Assembly who approved the measure back in June, the Senate this afternoon voted 22-15 to also approve the legislation:

California Legislature Again Passes Bill Giving Same-Sex Couples Choice to Marry [EQCA]

Kick ass, right? But the only problem -- the same governor who vetoed the legislation back in 2005, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is still in place at the head chair of the Golden State's executive branch. And it's fully expected that he will do the same thing this year and veto the bill before even one Vito & Bill can walk down the aisle together.

::sigh:: If only we could work out some sort of government swap-out system, wherein we in New York temporarily lend California our pro-gay marriage governor, and they could temporarily replace our anti-gay marriage Senate with their own gay nups-loving body. We could turn it into some sort of reality show. "Who Wants to Be The One To Correct This Historical Wrong?" or something like that. We're sure Gov. Spitzer would like to spend some time in the warm climate, and we just know the Cali Senate wants to see Grease on Broadway. Everyone wins!

Or, idea #2: ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER COULD JUST THE NONSENSE AND SEIZE THE F***ING OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME A CIVIL RIGHTS HERO!!!!!!! After all, doesn't he still owe us society penance for that dreadful Batman & Robin movie he was in?!

Your thoughts

Just out of curiosity, if the duly elective representatives of the California state legislature have passed this bill, but Schwarzeneger overrides them by vetoing it, does that make him an "activist governor"? ;)

Der Gubernator, who infamously describes his gay critics as 'girly men' hails from Austria, also the fatherland of Ratzinger, Der Pope. Schwarzenneger is a bosom buddy of Jörg Haider, founder of the BZO, the Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, a neo-Nazi Austrian political party. He has meetings, photo ops and dinners with this scum when he's in Austria.

The gubernator was elected by the rich to give billions to electric power companies in the wake of the Exxon scandal and so he did. He only signs gay and lesbian rights bills if they're cosmetic, not substantive. He's a violent oopponent of unions and immigrants.

Schwarzenegger sometines plays a centrist role but events constantly force him to the right. It’s unlikely the Democrats would have passed this measure if it were going to a Democrat governor, although we take our victories where we can. The usual problems affect the Democrat party in opposing him; cowardice, treachery, and a penchant for cosmetic reforms.
