A Lesson for Stoppin’ Liberal Activist Judges

(cross-posted from the ol’ Daily Kos there)

Duh!  Why didn’t I think of this sooner?

A new bill in the Iowa House of Representatives FINALLY solves the problem of liberal activist judges takin’ away all our precious freedoms!  Republicans are showin’ some real ingenuity in the ol’ legislative arena for dealin’ with same-sex marriage:

County recorders would be prohibited from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and the Iowa Supreme Court would be unable to rule on the issue under a bill sponsored by six conservative House Republicans.

House File 330 specifically says that the Supreme Court would not be able to overturn or restrict the law if the bill were passed.

How brilliant is that?  If the liberal courts are givin’ ya trouble, just pass a law to keep their noses out of our business!  It’s like the Republicans are playin’ chess and the Democrats are playin’ Minesweeper.
