Varnum is the case that decided Marriage Equality in Iowa, right?

Yeppers... Gotta love it, NOM spent all that money to voice their disapproval over the ruling by ousting three Justices and look what they get in return, the architect of it is now in charge...

And how about the fact that Cady isn't even up for re-election until like 2016..........NOM must be having a fit by now.........lol:)

I've read that NOM is trying to gather 300,000 signatures to remove Justice Reinhardt's from the 9th panel as well........these people just don't get it!!!

Only Congress and Senate can remove a federal judge not voters..

This is simple irony. I agree, they must be ranting and raving by now.

NOM also needs to hurry up with those signatures. The hearing is Monday.

They can gather as many signatures as their black little hearts and empty little heads desire, it won't do them any good. Reinhardt has already said he won't recuse himself, so there isn't jack that NOM can do with any petition drive.

I didn't think so, and if anything.......it shows just how desperate the proponents of Prop 8 really are.

It is my belief that they know that they have no standing and that they just want to find a stall tactic that would hopefully allow them more time to have their briefs ready for SCOUTS.

What's your take on it? Are you going to be watching the process? Let me know because I always value your knowledge:)

This is entirely a fundraising tactic for them. They are going to submit their lousy and worthless petition even though they know it is completely meaningless, and then they are going to tout their "will of the people" argument again. Its sick.

Oh, I do agree with you, but these folks just don't get it......and now they want to attack federal Justices.......not wise!!!!

I wonder though if they would just give me some of that money that they're busy wasting.........lol!!!
