Now THIS Is Funny

Or hideously sad, depending on how you look at it.

Maryland Democrats concerned about the political fallout from last week's court ruling on same-sex marriage are considering a plan to block any final court ruling from taking effect until after the November elections.

The proposal would be offered in legislation by Del. Luiz R.S. Simmons (D-Montgomery) that would freeze any decision from the state's highest court until the General Assembly has time to evaluate it.

And I particularly love this part:

Although many Democrats, including Simmons, said they support the rights of gays and lesbians to marry, they also said they recognize that the ruling could hurt the party during key elections this year -- the governor's office and a U.S. Senate seat are at stake.

Fortunately for them, the looniest of Maryland's Republicans are lining up and taking their usual shots, especially the idea of impeaching the judge who made the ruling. But does that excuse the willingness of these supposed "supporters of gay marriage" to stop and throw gays under the bus to protect their seats?
