Prop 8: adios, ya bum!

This is not an endorsement.
Friday, State Attorney General Jerry Brown filed documents in a federal court asking that same-sex marriages be allowed to go forward. Brown claims, and I agree, that the evidence is overwhelming that Prop 8 is unconstitutional. And the current governor, though a conservative and usually clueless, agrees.
Here's the link to the story from the San Francisco Chronicle: please click here.
And of course, Brown is also running for governor and will need every liberal vote to prevent California from having yet another millionaire governor with absolutely no experience.
Jerry Brown was governor when I moved to California, and I supported him. I found him honest and unpretentious after the idiot administrations in Texas I had lived through. And I like this move, too.
It's true. No matter what any of you think of gay marriage, our constitution already says everyone has the same rights. Not some of the same rights, but the same. Every higher court is going to shoot down Prop 8 for what it is; an illegal law. And besides that, man, it's mean. It's just mean! It's time to lay down another prejudice. Let's just do it and move on.
OK, maybe it is an endorsement. I want the next governor of California to have a heart. -Jobe (firstname.lastname@example.org)
