Which Side Are You On? ... New Jersey Division

Turns out NJ Governor James McGreevey, who just came out as gay, trumpeting his “courage” as a step forward in gay rights, does not support Gay Marriage. According to the New York Daily News, he made that clear last March when the first gay couple got married in Asbury Park, NJ:

McGreevey supports domestic partnership measures but not gay marriage. “The governor believes that the domestic partnership law is the best way to protect people’s basic human rights,” Rasmussen said. “We’re working hard to implement that law now. The issue of marriage is one that is before the courts.”

I apologize for blogging about McGreevey again, because he’s so creepy and reprehensible he’s scarcely worth the bandwidth. But sadly he’s all too typical of American politics today. And we deserve better. People ask what I mean about the New Reactionaries. Well, this is an example. (hat tip: Fausta)
