Law of Unintended Consequences Dept

Here on the left coast we have a state supreme court which just a few months ago discovered that homosexuals have the right to marry each other. People who realize that this makes no sense even by modern Californian standards placed a measure, denominated Proposition 8, on the ballot to amend the constitution to remove this new-found right. (They did not do it to "restore traditional marriage" as the rhetoric alleged. Traditional marriage is illegal in this state and has been for many years. It remains so. But that's a diatribe for another post.)

And Proposition 8 passed. How'd it do that? Read about it here.

Try not to snicker. It isn't charitable.
