Sandra Day O'Connor makes strong marriage equality move; thanks, Pres. Reagan!!

by Jeremy Hooper

201310300602Ruth Bader Ginsburg did it. Now the Supreme Court Justice's retired counterpart is getting in the game:

Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Officiates Gay Wedding AT Supreme Court [J.M.G.]

And social conservatives looking for someone to blame for the fact that this person has his platform to make this statement can look to one person: Religious right icon Ronald Wilson Reagan. The 40th president of course nominated O'Connor, the first woman, to the Supreme Court.

Guess the Gipper loved "judicial activism" as much as he loved jelly beans, huh?
