Prop. 8/DOMA


#1

Can’t wait for the verdict to come down on this one and finally move us into the twenty first century on this issue.


#2

Won’t happen. Roberts knows it’s coming, so he won’t vote the other way, but he will punt it. Don’t expect a decision on Prop 8.


#3

Another 10 hour filibuster?


#4


#5

I wasn’t, I am talking about DOMA, but Prop 8 deserves to be mentioned. You don’t think they will punt DOMA, do you? The talking news heads said Kennedy might be leaning to the left.


#6

I think they will strike down DOMA but send Prop 8 back to the Circuit Court. I don’t see any possible way of them doing the right thing and striking it down completely. The Court is too far to the Right. I can see them declaring Civil Unions as Separate but Equal, and all those under Civil Unions will be classified as married, but that’s gonna be a BIG stretch.


#7

Remember the talking news heads during the ACA oral arguments? I’m not even bothering to listen. Gonna be a long wait.
