Well. Here’s a surprise [via the WahPoo]:
Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) declared Wednesday that Maryland will recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere and that its agencies should immediately begin affording gay married couples the same rights as heterosexual ones.
Go ahead. Re-read it a few times. I had to.
When that has sunk in, I recommend dipping into the opinion (a 53 page .pdf).
[Ahem] I mean, Wow.
And here’s something that is not a surprise:
[Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr. (R-Anne Arundel)] vowed to bring articles of impeachment against Gansler for trying to usurp Maryland law, which defines marriage within the state as between a man and a woman.
No, Dwyer isn’t that stupid. He’s this stupid.
Gansler, clearly very worried and eager to appease Dwyer, compared him to Homer Stokes.
