Our Lady of Merlot has a post up on Marriage Equality in Wisconsin; she’s positive on the topic (“It’s a beautiful, warm late spring night and the atmosphere was low key and not at all protest-y or political. These were couples doing what they should have been able to do all along.”), but her readers are not:
Disgusting and appalling that we see repeated the pattern that local clerks — Democrats — pull stunts with extended hours while real lawyers try to get real judges to stay the constitutionality opinions until a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals can rule. Invariably (?) the appellate courts have ruled — as they should — that district court orders on major state constitutional questions should be stayed pending appeal. Utah, Michigan, Virginia; you name it. They have all put stays into effect. After, that is, a rainbow-parade circus of gay marriages in the intervening hours.
It is an abomination to the rule of law and good trial court/appellate court procedure.
So, who authorized the overtime and expenditure of taxpayers money for something that can wait until normal office hours?
Now comes the all out attack on freedom of association and the attempt to destroy the Catholic Church.
In fact, it’s already started.
You are an intensely destructive woman, Althouse.
You are Exhibit A in why the patriarchy should be restored and why women should not occupy your position. Your job should be reserved for a heterosexual man with a family.
I would link to her post, but then I’d have Mead show up here again protecting his meal ticket. Anyway, go read the comments there. These people will turn on a dime to shiv their heroes.
