"Now, maybe you think my mom's 'nuts.' You're entitled to your opinion. I don't think she's nuts."

LOL.

MetaFilter is always a mistake.

(Evidently your commenters are nuts!

Even the ones that agree with the guy who said that, I imagine.

Which would mean that he's nuts for agreeing with those nuts.)

Nice comment, JAC.

Check out JAC, pulling the mom card! I'm trying to figure out whether that's cute or lame. :)

BTW, I agree that AA is probably right, but not probably enough that I'd be willing to make this bet on it, and be willing to make the bet that, if it is upheld, there won't be a constitutional amendment overturning it.

I wrote an article here about why same sex marriage supporters should not cheer this decision.

I'm pretty sure it's mainly an ethic of full disclosure.

I agree with my mom's comment!

I was just teasing, guys.

Now, maybe you think my mom's "nuts." You're entitled to your opinion. I don't think she's nuts.

No, but the commenters on her blog sure are. Holy moly.

Ah! But is that zerbinetta character talking about the right-wing Althouse commentators, or is she (the "etta" ending implies female) talking about HD, FLS, garage, Alpha, and the like?

Maybe?

He doesn't think you're nuts?

Even after you dug in and went Full Metal Wingnut?

How sharper than a serpent's tooth ...

Over here there is a fairly wide range of opinions about gay marriage and I think also a pretty good appreciation for each other's points. Over at the kid's table, I mean metafilter, they all agree and cannot comprehend how any non-bigot with brains could possibly disagree with them.

Filial devotion doesn't make its object any more right.

I think most of the people here don't care that much about gay marriage.

Especially if it is Lesbians.

I mean just think of the cool school yard taunts for Heather who has two mommies.

"Oh Yeah! Well my Mom can lick your Mom!!!!!!!!!!"

Clearly, your mom is nuts.

Ha ha.

As for this:

No, but the commenters on her blog sure are. Holy moly.

For the benefit of any first time visitors from that Metafilter thread:

"Booga-booga!"

If Mort was awake he would say that is racist.

Take note all, when certain posters-who-cannot-be-named show up?

"Holy moly!!1!!1!!"

(They'll never get it as they avoid the fun stuff.)

Amend the US Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

I like nuts. They are delicious and good for you!

Amend the US Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

...and a judge will find a constitutional right for a person to determine for themselves whether they are a man or a woman, independent of DNA, genitalia, or any other objective criteria.

The question is, which is to be master, the Constitution or the judges.

When huge public policy decisions come down to one person... it's foolish to try to predict the outcome.
