Beshear Keeps Digging Hole to Bury Kentucky In

For Fuck's Sake, Steve, who do you think you are kidding?

Jack Brammer at the Herald:

Gov. Steve Beshear defended his role Wednesday in arguing that a ban on same-sex marriages is needed in Kentucky because only opposite-sex couples can procreate, thus ensuring a stable birth rate and the state's long-term economic stability.

In striking down Kentucky's ban on gay marriage earlier in the week, U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II said the state's arguments to uphold the ban "are not those of serious people."

Asked during a Capitol news conference his reaction to the judge's statement, Beshear first said the state will appeal the ruling to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
So as Kentuckians everywhere are struggling to keep their families together because budget shortfalls are forcing catastrophic cuts in basic services, Dinosaur Steve is happy to waste our tax dollars on a flat-earth argument that's proving every derogatory stereotype about backward Kentuckians.

Jim and I have been together longer than Steve and Jane. Jim and I have been together than Jack Conway has been alive, 46 years. Steve really needs to move on and stop hurting his legacy!
