Ups and Downs 

This is a very good thing, except that it will also cause some annoyances. I'm breaking my no-politics policy rather blatantly here, because this is so important. And I take it very personally (duh).

Civil rights are crucial, and that's what we're talking about here. Anyone who says different can move someplace like Saudi Arabia or Kazakhstan, where they don't have constitutions protecting citizens from discrimination, or really much of anything.

The problem is: this is really major ammo for Republican wingnuttery. They know that if they scream loud and long enough, enough people are too stupid (due to poor education, as per Republican policy) to question or even know the difference.

Plus, the Post has gotten embarrassing. "The impending reality of court-ordered same-sex marriage in a U.S. state..." Could they spin it a little more obviously please?
