I'm guessing Scalia will draft, well, hope this doesn't offend anyone, quite a bitchy opinion...whether it concurs with the majority or minority is the real question...because I'm also guessing that while he will NOT be ignored, the other justices aren't likely to join in what's bound to be a raging polemic.

And while it's small comfort (and I think I've mentioned this before in comments here), it's a bit of justice for old Tony: for all his pretensions towards high minded legal scholarship, his legacy and history will forever be Bush v. Gore, the epitome of hack/lousy opinions...and a few rhetorical spitballs as he fades into insignificance.

We'll be lucky if we end up with a decision that doesn't require homosexuals to wear pink triangles, frankly. The people who appealed these cases to the Supremes are out of their fricking minds. Everything that has been fought and won will be lost in a twinkling as a result of this. What kind of idiotic idealist appeals to a bunch like the current Court?

The only thing that *might* bring the correct decision is if Roger Ailes, Boehner, et al. let Roberts know that having another Roe v. Wade to wave around as an endless fundraiser from the brain-dead would be a good thing for the GOP.

Cases were appealed by the anti-marriage equality claque.

I'm still trying to figure out how, in my mother's immortal words, same-sex marriage picks anyone's pockets or breaks anyone's leg. As you know, it has been legal for years here in Soviet Canuckistan, and so far, the sky has *not* fallen.
