Keeping the Process Legitimate

I have not been read­ing Kevin Drum for long, but I enjoy his blog. His post on the Cal­i­for­nia Supreme Court’s rul­ing on Prop 8 is an excel­lent exam­ple. Yes, Prop 8, which bans same sex mar­riage, is loath­some, but it needs to be thrown out on the basis of being uncon­sti­tu­tion­al, not on a technicality.

I appre­ci­ate Kev­in’s will­ing­ness to cheer a prop­er result that is good for a ter­ri­ble law, at least (hope­ful­ly!) in the short term.
