Swallow this pill, Dr. Mitt
"Gays Have Full Marriage Rights, Massachusetts Court Says." Civil unions need not apply, thank you very much. Romney and Bush, of course, tried to spin the good news as a blow to democracy:
"We've heard from the court, but not from the people. The people of Massachusetts should not be excluded from a decision as fundamental to our society as the definition of marriage. This issue is too important to leave to a one-vote majority of the SJC. This is why it's imperative that we proceed with the legitimate process of amending our state Constitution."-Gov. Mitt RomneyFunny that an undemocratically-elected president should talk about activist judges and the will of the people... but regardless, vital advances in human rights can't always be left up to majority rule.
''Activist judges continue to seek to redefine marriage by court order without regard for the will of the people.'' White House spokesman Scott McClellan.
