As most of you loyal readers know, I am ambivalent about gay marriage, because I am ambivalent about straight marriage. I would see marriage evolve to a social/religious custom with straightforward contract law covering the rest. I would also see marriage advantages that are enshrined in law, done away with.
That said, I am bracing myself for today's decision, which is almost certainly going to uphold gay marriage as a Constitutional right.
Not because I would disagree with such a decision, though I might.
But because the smarmy, bootlicking, cool-kid, oh-so-nonjudgmental media will immediately claim yet another victory for President Obama, a man who was elected President looking straight into the cameras claiming that he believed marriage was between one man and one woman. All will be forgotten by the cloying toadies of the political-media complex.
