V-T- gets its irrational E O

by Jeremy Hooper

It's official.  And annoying:

The governor of Vermont vetoed Monday legislation that would have legalized same-sex marriage in the state.

Gov. Jim Douglas, a Republican, vetoed the legislation, which passed the state Senate, 26-4, and the state House, 95-52.

Now it's up to the lawmakers to rise up and override this unrighteous pen stroke so that the Green Mountain State can become the first to enact marriage equality via VolunTary legislative action. 

Can we find the needed House votes to do so?  We certainly hope so, as we'd hate for Ben & Jerry's next flavor to be Gays' Rocky Road Towards Having Chubby Hubby Lengthened Because of Nutty, Half Baked Fluff

Such terrible timing, first with Schwarzenegger and now this guy. Come on overwhelmingly liberal states, what's with the republican Gov's?

Sheesh.

Vermont really isn't THAT overwhelmingly liberal. I think they have a history of Republican governors (minus Dean).
That said, these Republican governors run VERY centrist campaigns. One thing every politician knows: as long as you CAMPAIGN one way, no one will really care what you actually do in office.
Doubtless, this jerk ran as a social moderate.
