WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? VAUGHN! VAUGHN! VAUGHN WALKER!TIME FOR EVERYONE IN CALIFORNIA TO GET GAY-MARRIED AGAIN, OR NOT: UPDATED: It was originally breathlessly reported that Judge Vaughn Walker had lifted the stay on the decision to strike down Proposition 8, so that California is once again a state where the gays can do gross things like “nuptials” in front of our poor, innocent children. Couples were already lined up at City Hall in San Francisco! That sounds familiar! But it turns out the stay was extended until August 18. THEN Californians can ruin America with this “marriage” smut. [LA Times]

    NO GAY MARRYING UNTIL AUGUST 18, for the ruling states that gays shall not get g-arried without picking out the proper china patterns, which cannot be done in haste.

    This gives the supporters of Prop 8 time to appeal to the 9th circuit. Their initial request for a further stay will be heard by a “motions panel” consisted of two (more or less) liberal Clinton appointees (one of whom was on Obama’s short list to replace Stevens) and a Reagan appointee.

    Psst. Bill, Glenn … the Culture Warriors Army does not have a DADT policy. It’s more like IOKIYAR. Just watch out for Ann Coulter — he’s a real cougar. And Rush only smokes cigars to stay in practice. Just sing it out boys: “California here I come….”
