GAY MARRIAGE IN CALIFORNIA....The state Senate voted Thursday to allow same sex marriage in California. Good for them. But if it passes the Assembly, Arnold has proposed a novel excuse for vetoing it:

Signaling a likely veto if it does pass, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's spokeswoman said he preferred to let judges sort out the legality of gay marriage; such a case is moving toward the state Supreme Court.

That's something you don't hear every day: the legislature should avoid legislating and instead let the judiciary legislate for them. Politics doesn't get much more gutless than that.
