'Predator' star targets predatory measure

by Jeremy Hooper

He may have vetoed legislation that would have legalized marriage equality in the Golden State. Twice. But that doesn't mean Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to see a history-tarnishing, soul-mashing, anti-gay amendment banning same-sex nups adopted in California's constitution. In fact, at a Friday convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, the governor confidently announced that if such a piece of parliamentary poo poo does make its way to the November ballot, he will "fight against" it:

Now, as ones who believe that the rights of a minority should never be left to public opinion and that both the courts and the legislature are perfectly suitable places for fairness to be granted, we continue to detest Arnold's decision to veto the past passed pro-gay marriage measures. However, it is admittedly nice to hear the moderate Republican voicing such a strong stance against the truly ghastly idea of a marriage-banning amendment. Through his veto decisions, the onetime Kindergarten Cop may have somewhat forfeited his opportunity to become a true civil rights hero, the likes of whom could've helped changed the conversation within his part vis a vis the equitable treatment of gay people. But at least he is showing that he's not going to eschew basic fairness in order to placate the fringes who've hijacked the GOP for far too long.
