Darth Rove: Evil Genius!

Who knew he controlled the NJ Supreme Court? He unveiled an “October Surprise” in a state where it shouldn’t mean diddly in the tight Menendez/Keane Jr. Senate race, but can be used to strike right at the hearts of different sections of the national GOP base….
You Magnificent Bastard! What other diabolical tricks do you have up your sleeve?

New Jersey’s Supreme Court opened the door to gay marriage Wednesday, ruling that homosexuals are entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals, but leaving it to lawmakers to legalize same-sex unions.

The high court gave lawmakers 180 days to rewrite marriage laws to either include same-sex couples or create a new system of civil unions for them.

NJ Court Stops Short of Gay Marriage OK

Rove just delivered the bomb that will blast all those “values voters” out of their torpor and into the voting booth, along with the people fed up to their eyeballs with activists in black robes legislating from the bench. Four judges just gave the New Jersey state legislature marching orders. They, alone, decided the NJ state constitution needed changing, and gave the state’s elected representatives an “or else” deadline, to boot. Sure, there will be appeals, so the deadline will be moved back, but still, they took the decision out of the hands of the people of New Jersey. Gay marriage is Garden State Law, baby!

Seriously, when this happened up in Massachusetts, in a way it was minor, because you actually have to be a resident of that state to get married up Beantown way. A gay couple from the Carolinas would have to move to Cambridge to take advantage of that state’s judiciary rewriting the rules. You had to be a resident of Massachusetts.

Not so in NJ. So when those dumb criminal punks in Trenton’s legislative chambers start talking in the next day or so about trying to craft something that says “civil union,” and attempt to officially define marriage in New Jersey constitutionally as “man and woman,” watch the national gay lobby descend on the land of Sopranos and sweet corn. And watch Rove crank up the media machines to scare the shit out of a chunk of the GOP base that many a pundit thought were maybe gonna sit ’06 out: the religious right, who many were saying would stay home out of disgust with the Foley kerfluffle, and people just pissed to high heaven at judges making imperial edicts law from on high will decide that allowing Dems to choose who sits on the bench is a promise of this kind of thing happening for years to come.
