    Sure sounds like a done deal to me, except for some minor formalities in January.

    A Great day for New Jersey the ruling today made it clear what the final outcome of this case is going to be, there is no new argument that is going to be found between now and January that will change the opinion of the court. On the other side if it were to rule against marriage equality it would create a mess with the marriages that have already taken place. Thus either way the legislature should follow the lead of the court and overrule the veto to put this issue to rest.

    ” there is no new argument that is going to be found between now and January that will change the opinion of the court.”

    I think it would be wonderful if they could come up with a new argument, if only for the entertainment value.

    At least Republicans and Tea baggers still have the South that they can rely on. Nixon’s Southern Strategy was clearly a roaring and enduring success.

    Christie has said that while he disagrees, the state health department would assist counties in complying with the ruling so that marriages may begin Monday.

    So it’s pretty much all over but the shoutin’

    Hey NOM, give it up. Marriage reality is ♂♀ or ♂♂ or ♀♀.

    Slam dunk.

    Cue the wailing and rending of garments from Brian Brown, et al.

    Oh, wait — I just realized: this will be another victory for NOM. Somehow.

    @bill johnson “Thus either way the legislature should follow the lead of the court and overrule the veto to put this issue to rest….”

    Actually, I disagree. If the legislators overrode the veto, the bill’s religious exemptions would be resuscitated. I think we’d be better off with a court win instead, since it would not include built-in religious exemptions. I think the LGBT groups should reconsider their strategy on the veto if they are now confident of winning in court.

    Well It’s about time someone knocked Humpty Dumpty off his lawn chair. I’m glad to see this constitutional criminal culled, if only for a moment.

    “Stomped” was an inspired description, Jim. Pitch perfect.
