Elections Have Consequences

After Gonzales came down last week, the mantra was elections have consequences.

Boy do they ever.

Happily, today those consequences are good ones. Governor Spitzer (of NY) has announced that he will introduce legislation to legalize same sex marriage in New York.

Such legislation faces an uphill climb in the New York state legislature, and it’s unclear how much political muscle the Governor will put behind it. Still, it’s gratifying to see the governor we progressives elected pursuing the agenda we want.
