    No, it goes beyond “the role of the judicial system” because, as I noted, the Gov and AG refused to represent the will of the people.

    Here’s where you explain that with some “liberal logic”

    Now I realize I don't live in California anymore, but Ahnold was still governer last I checked. Did he switch parties?

    Regardless of what he does and doesn't support, the role of the judicial system is still to strike down laws that are unconstitutional. You can disagree with the judge's ruling, but not her role.

    For instance, I very much oppose the Supreme Court's ruling on campaign donation limits for corporations. But I don't think they didn't have the right to make the ruling.

    The governor of California is a Republican. YOU elected HIM, instead of backing a more Conservative candidate, such as Tom McClintock, who could also have beaten Davis. Don't blame the governor. Blame yourself for supporting him instead of any of the Conservative candidates in that race. Bottom line is you got what you wished for.

    Kelzie, what he is referring to is the prop 8 ruling in CA. The initial ruling was that Prop 8 was unconstitutional. Arnie and the AG refused to be part of the repeal, which may cause the prop 8 backers to not have standing to file the repeal. It's the subject of another court case now.

    I thought they didn't have standing because they weren't affected by the ruling or some such legal jargon.
