NOM’s Brian Brown Gets All Giddy Over CA Supreme Court Prop 8 Opinion

“It has been nothing short of shameful to see Governor Jerry Brown, his predecessor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Kamala Harris abdicate their constitutional responsibility to defend Proposition 8 in Court. Although today’s ruling from the California Supreme Court confirms that the proponents of Prop 8 have the right to defend their initiative when the state officials refuse to fulfill their sworn duty, it is gratifying to know that the over 7 million Californians who supported the initiative will have a vigorous defense of their decision in our federal courts.”

Brian Brownshirt Brown of The National Organization for Marriage was simply orgasmic over today’s California Supreme Court decision that Protect Marriage does have a right to intervene in the state-level Prop 8 case under California law.

BUT……… The 9th Circuit will be the one ultimately decides if they have standing under Federal Law, which has a more stringent requirement that they must prove that they have been injured by the ruling and the testimony their own experts gave in District Court undermines that argument.

What Brownshirt should be saying is:  “Hurray!  Now we can be totally embarrassed by the ‘merits’ of our case AGAIN!!!”
