This is Maryland . . . right?

I wouldn't have expected this in a million years in this bluer-than-the-sky, if-we-were-any-more-progressive-it would-already-be-tomorrow state:

Court upholds Md. gay marriage ban

What a victory for those of us who don't buy the drivel of "Love makes a family."

And here's an interesting tidbit:

In January 2006, Baltimore Circuit Court Judge M. Brooke Murdock held that the law was unconstitutional and discriminatory. The Attorney General's Office immediately appealed the decision. Last December, the Court of Appeals heard arguments.
Brooke Murdock. Where have we heard THAT name before? Hmmmm . . . maybe elsewhere in my blog? Like here? She was a sleazeball lawyer, so it surprises me not that the pro-sodomy forces found her as a judge to make this initial ruling. State Delegate Don Dwyer attempted to have her impeached for legislating from the bench by overturning the law in the first place, but that move failed.

In spite of all this, it's a wonderful day to be from Maryland, for a change. But the fight is only beginning, since the veto-proof bunch of liberal do-gooders state legislature is bound to try something new next year.

Wow! Marriage? A man? And a woman? In Maryland?!?! Who'd a thunk it?
