Dominic, while that may be true in some instances, in this case, the GOP cow is simply using that as an excuse to justify her discrimination against gays. Rather than admit outright that she dislikes homos because they are different than her, and therefore must be punished for it, she justifies her position by stating this basically outrageous claim. 

I seriously doubt any straight men are going to masquerade as gays just to get a tax write off.

First of all, there is no rule or law that says that the two people getting married have to love each other or that they have to have sex.  Those things might be a common expectation, but the amount of sexless and/or loveless marriages between hets, tells us that it is not necessary for a relationship.  So if two people of the same sex, choose to marry, and one or both happen to be het, more power to them.  With today's economy many non-sexual couples pool resources, share homes, and yes, even share their lives.

Dumb hick is right. Funny is right, too. But also sad, since that kind of view really affects people's lives--especially when the hicks are in politics. Or is that Polihicks?

Hey, did I just coin a new word?

Well, everyone knows, that's why straight people get married.  It's for the financial benefit.

When I read the thing about the Georgia GOP Chairwoman, I had to laugh!  At first I thought it was a spoof headline, but No!  She really said that!  HAHAHAHAHHA!  What a dumb f****ing HICK!!!  HAHAHAHAHA!

Georgia Republican Party chair: Straight people will enter gay marr...

Of course they will. You know, that's why black people want to marry white people. They're just lazy and want to get a government handout. Can't pull nuttin' over a Republican's eyes, can ya?

Sentient - that would explain a great deal about the Supreme Court! It's probably no accident that we've never seen any of Scalia's or Thomas's poetry. They want to keep their law clerks alive. :-)

Tony, thank you for the HitchHiker's therapy - my favorite!

Chrissie - absolutley wise words!

Grinning Cat - Mr. Scalia reminds me of a Vogon in human form.  Perhaps he and Thomas are Vogon:human hybrids.

Dallas - thanks for the video.

Now for a nap!

Courtney Milan has written a funny yet accurate summary of the oral arguments on Prop. 8 before the Supreme Court:

This summary is still fairly long, but it’s shorter and I’ve worked to make things as accessible as possible to those without legal training [...] this is basically what happened, plus or minus the aliens eating children.

[...]

COOPER: Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, and may it please the Court. Today, we—

ROBERTS: In keeping with the practices of this Court, we don’t allow anyone to complete a full sentence before interrupting them. Tell us why the people who hired you should even be allowed to bring a case. [...]

(h/t Joe.My.God.)
