A thin reed to hang our hats on

Be sure to check out the Fitzsimon File today. In it, Chris does a great job of exploring and explaining the lame explanations and recent grumpiness of the chief sponsor of the marriage discrimination amendment, Rep. Paul Stam.

You see, those of us who raise questions about the amendment’s breadth are worrying about nothing. According to Rev./Rep. Stam we (and the law professors who echo our concerns) are “loopy.”

As Chris notes:

“In Stam’s world, no dissent goes un-insulted. He has to be the smartest person in the room and he wants us to trust him, even when it comes to writing vague language about discrimination in the state’s fundamental document.

No thanks.”
