    Yes, it pains me to defend him, but it is the right thing to do, and sometimes the right thing to do is difficult.
    I'm trying to avoid the whole gay people can get married crap, that is usually trotted out.

    Facts are, the judge applied the concept of equality under the law.
    A very good thing because the religious getting easily offended by gay people is not important.

    Ironic?
    But that would mean (gasp) that the judge made his decision despite it being against his own personal politics! That the judge actually applied the law, just like judges are supposed to do!

    Right, absolutely, I agree. I am just pointing out that his argument was not that it was the will of the people, as some claimed.

    He is also gay, which makes the above especially amusing.

    Worse than that, he is a libertarian, which means I am applauding a libertarian...

    I loved that show too. It told me about the real badass Israel Bissell! Paul Revere was nothing compared to him Even if his name sounded like a jewish vacuum cleaner
