Case dismissed.The outlook for the legal defense of Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage, grew cloudier Thursday as a state appellate court refused to order Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown to appeal a federal judge's ruling overturning the measure.
This is big. Governor Schwarzeneggar does not have to appeal the overturning of Proposition 8, and he won't. This means that, pretty soon, gay marriage in California is going to be pretty much a done deal.
I remember a few years ago, when Republicans pushed other candidates aside to make Arnold the candidate, and eventually the Governor. Screw the issues, the "R" after the name was everything. To those Republicans, I say "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it". As for Arnold? In some ways, he turned out to be a decent Republican, after all. He definitely turned out to be one that ended up upholding Constitutional principles for ALL people in his state, not just some.
