Repeat after me: activist legislature

Do you think Maryland Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr. (R-Anne Arundel) asked this with a sincere concern for the children showing on his face?

Dwyer also sought a legal opinion on the procedure he would need to impeach Circuit Court Judge M. Brooke Murdock [ed. note: for her ruling that same-sex marriage restrictions violate the Maryland Constitution]. The attorney general’s office advised that the process is available only “for high crimes and misdemeanors.”

These are the kinds of people voters elect to lead them. Somehow, I’m not swayed away from my appreciation that we’re a republic and not a democracy. At least it impedes the bigots, even if only a tiny bit.

  1. Maybe the Maryland Legislature can pass a law requiring any judge that rules in favor of same-sex marriage must devote 8% of their caseload to healthcare litigation. Or something.
