“I don’t know what the difference between a dictatorship and this is,” complained Republican state Sen. Richard Black.

Oh, I do, I do!

In a dictatorship, Richard Black would be placed against a wall and shot.

Richard Black would be in hiding with Ted Poopy Pants. Why aren’t they running for their lives?

These are the same people who pretend to be strict constructionists. This stance lasts only until they have to actually follow it, then their problems with it begin.

Let me explain, Senator:

1. The Attorney General was elected in a free and fair vote of the people of Virginia.

2. He hasn’t unilaterally decided to change the law and started passing out marriage licenses to same-sex couples. He is going to file a brief in court, argue the case, patiently wait for a judicial decision, then participate in a likely appeal.

3. You are freely bloviating about “dictatorship” and won’t be shot, arrested, beaten or mysteriously disappear.

Now go about your business. There will be a pop quiz later to see if you have remembered the difference between Virginia’s AG and a dictator. Sadly, apparently basic knowledge of 5th grade civics is not a requirement to be a state senator in Virginia.

What I hear is that the dictatorship should be his, apparently. He doesn’t even give a vague acknowledgement of the idea of the separation of powers.

And yet it’s perfectly democratic to deny same sex couples their equal rights under the law. THis is why Herring was my favorite vote this past November. Obenshain may have oddly not been the most extremist GOPer on the ticket but he’s enough of your standard right wing asshole to not have done what Herring is doing here. DIck Black should really shut the fuck up. This isn’t a dictatorship. This happens all the time.

Same sex marriage dictatorship just like Kristallnacht and holocaust. //
