Wow. I thought of all people, folks in Indiana would understand the meaning of putting lipstick on a pig.

Apparently, someone needs to explain to the Republicans in Indiana what every 8th grade Civics teacher has to explain--laws and constitutional amendments are different things. Laws cannot trump, modify, explain, or in any way effect a constitutional amendment. It doesn't happen like that.

I can't figure out why they're still even bothering to pursue this. The best they can hope for is to continue not allowing gay couples to marry for another few years, which is what's going to happen either way because it's already against the law there. And since state-wide laws banning marriage equality AND state constitutional amendments are BOTH unconstitutional, they're wasting their time here.

But don't let that stop a bunch of politicians from sitting back and "hearing the arguments" rather than doing REAL work.
