It's hard out in California for a bigot…
Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker on Thursday rejected a request to delay his decision striking down Proposition 8 from taking effect until high courts can take up an appeal lodged by its supporters. One of the reasons, the judge said, is he's not sure the proponents have the authority to appeal since they would not be affected by or responsible for implementing his ruling…
The ban's backers "point to harm resulting from a 'cloud of uncertainty' surrounding the validity of marriages performed after judgment is entered but before proponents' appeal is resolved," he said. "Proponents have not, however, argued that any of them seek to wed a same-sex spouse."
Seems that there's an easy fix for this problem. Obviously, one of them is going to have to wed a same-sex spouse. To save the country from gay marriage, Maggie Gallagher is gonna have to gay marry Phyllis Schlafly or something. There's just no way around it.

Maggie Gallagher — from the anti-civil liberties organization National Organization for Marriage — takes a victory lap after her rag tag bunch of religiously-subsidized underdogs managed to defeat marriage-equality in Maine last Tuesday.
Pretty much the only thing that could make this video any more distasteful is if she were wearing a Yankees cap…
Here's a much more acceptable version…
