Judge Walker’s Critics — Divorced From Reason

Mad Kane hits the nail so squarely on the head with this one that I present it in toto.

The gay-bashers are at it again, freaking out at Judge Vaughn Walker’s pro-gay marriage Proposition 8 decision in Perry v. Schwarzenegger. The attacks claim, among other things, that:

The ruling is a travesty of justice because Walker himself is reportedly gay - and because he’s gay, he should’ve removed himself from the case!

Boy, am I glad I never parlayed my law degree into a judgeship. Because, based on this “reasoning,” I would have been duty-bound to recuse myself from any case involving women, Jews, short people, straights, New Yorkers, satirists, versifiers, lawyers, oboe players, agnostics, and people older than … uh … never mind.

That brings me to my latest limerick:

Judge Walker’s Critics — Divorced From Reason
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Judge Walker’s well-reasoned decision
Has been met with gay-bashing derision:
He’s “reportedly gay,”
So was biased their way
Oh, just straight guys have unbiased vision?

Well yeah, like, you know, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas et al like Turdblossom, Miss Becky, and Limpbaugh, although I wonder sometimes just how straight they are.

Note to Mad: Good one, hon. Check yer rose bushes...(wink)
