Twisted Logic

Governor Douglas on his veto of the same-sex marriage bill in Vermont:

“This legislation does not address the inequalities espoused by proponents,” Douglas said in his veto message. “Regardless of whether the term marriage is applied, federal benefits will still be denied to same-sex couples in Vermont.”

What brilliant reasoning! I hadn't thought of that. Of course it makes sense that if same-sex couples don't get federal rights, it wouldn't matter if they got state rights. I mean, seriously, states don't matter. It's not like they're the ones in charge of marrying you or something.

Oh wait...
