RSS icon Comments on WA State Supremes: Not Going to Reconsider Anderson


It felt really dirty filling in the oval next to Alexander to get Groen out in the primary stage.

I'm glad I don't have to do that again for the general. Fucking scumbag.

Given New Jersey's ruling, it sure does make the WA Supremes look like hypocritical fools, tho.

I accidentally bubbled in Gerry's name on the general election ballot. D'oh!

The Washington Supreme Court handed down an open, glaring and scandalous issue of lies.

The gratifying ruling from New Jersey was a total victory and exposes Gerry Alexander, Charles Johnson, Barbara Madsen, Richard Sanders and Jim Johnson as kangaroo court hypocrites.

We should neither forget nor forgive.

On a related note, there is a small plane flying a "Stephen Johnson for State Supreme Court" banner on the Eastside as we speak. Can Susan Owens top that?

Barbara Madsen is an incompetent, mentally-challenged piece of shit.

Sigh. Such are the trials of democracy.

I love what Beau Burriola wrote in the SGN a few weeks back. He summed up the aftermath of the Washington decision perfectly:

“Up until this summer, most of us urban Gay folk have been living peacefully in our Queer neighborhoods, imagining ourselves to be pretty equally protected in our good ole progressive Washington State.

We have a massive Gay community, a Gay chorus the size of the Chinese army, Gay historians and athletes, an annual parade that swallows the town, our own film festival, and a Gay phone book pointing to a million other reasons why Seattle's Gay community is strong.

We've watched the fight for marriage equality go to the Supreme Court and imagined that surely the justices would see that the system was wrong and had to be corrected, but the majority decision to deny marriage protection to same sex couples shattered that illusion of equality completely.”

Will Jamie P. sponsor legislation to repeal DOMA? Our fight goes to the legislature. Bring it.

"a gay chorus the size of the Chinese army".

Now, how the hell am I supposed to get that death-by-treacle image out of my head?

And -- just my two cents -- I invite the cowardly State Supe's to eat my AIDS-infected ass.

As I said, this will end only when a nice married Canadian gay couple are denied the rights of married couples - which under NAFTA and FTAA they're entitled to - while in the USA.

Not before.

Where was this made public? I've been searching the lazyweb for a while, and still haven't come across anything that confirms this (even the Seattle Times and the PI have yet to report something).

Posted by gnarr | October 25, 2006 5:31 PM

Nevermind. The PI just posted something.

Posted by gnarr | October 25, 2006 5:58 PM

Well, I can't say exactly where we got it—but I can say this: we had a Supreme Court justice was in our office this afternoon.

Man, I am so bummed out.

And when you interviewed the judge after the decision, didn't he assure you that the decision would be appealed and heard again?
