*Press conference audio: (click to play audio clip)

A majority ballot vote placed above the informed decision of a fairly elected legislature?

A gay person's concerns for their family protection placed on the same footing as straw man fears about public school teaching?

Constant calls for respect, all while disrespecting every gay and lesbian constituent who is seeking nothing more than basic protections?

The suggestion that this decision is too big for one person, all while she is making a one-person decision that overrules the legislature?

A call for compromise on a bill and system that was already a less-than-equal compromise?


[::sigh::] The curse of the Bradys' Tiki necklace strikes again.
