When A Mommy Law Loves A Daddy Law Very Much . . .

Via Daily Kos, an LA Times article from when the Senate passed the Leno bill that offers the following insight on Schwarzenegger's likely action:

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.
Hasn't anyone yet explained to the Governor how we make laws in the State of California? No really, it's crazy, Governor Schwarzenegger, but - wait for it - the Legislature passes bill and then, if you sign them, presto! YOU'VE MADE THE LAW!

So the court doesn't get to sort things out unless the Legislature either doesn't or does a crappy job of doing so.

Let the courts do it!? Ack!
